Experience God's Presence

Latest Sermons

God told the Israelites to take the Sabbath serious and with reverence and do nothing else on this day but rest and worship God. Jesus continued the sanctity of the Sabbath. The sermon aims to encourage the congregation to put worship above everything else on Sunday.

God wanted the Israelites to learn to thank God for God’s goodness by giving back to God from what God gave them. From gold, silver, bronze, yarn, olive oil, etc. In the sermon, Rev. Nadeem says that our giving reflects our gratitude to God. In the gospel of Mark, chapter 12, Jesus appreciates the generosity of a widow who, despite she was poor, offered everything she had. The sermon aims to remind the importance of giving for our Christian faith. The giving not only includes money but our talent and time as well.

Our Beliefs

United Methodists profess the historic Christian faith in God, incarnate in Jesus Christ for our salvation and ever at work in human history in the Holy Spirit. Living in a covenant of grace under the Lordship of Jesus Christ, we participate in the first fruits of God's coming reign and pray in hope for its full realization on earth as in heaven.

Our History

We began as a society under the Methodist Protestant Church. The society included the counties of Amelia, Nottoway, and Dinwiddie and was established in 1827 on land a few miles from its present location. The members quickly outgrew the building and in 1845 the new building was dedicated. The building was then moved in 1872.

Prayer Request

Please contact us at the church office to notify us of any prayer requests. Our father in Heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Lord, let the light of Jesus Christ, Your Son, be visible in the way I respond to all I encounter. For it is my faith and attitude that can help or hinder leading one to Christ to be saved. In Jesus’ name, Amen!!

Make a Charitable Donation

Note: Fort Pickett is no longer accepting general donations or clothes.

Our Afghan friends are all expected to leave Fort Pickett by Spring, if not before. Such a wonderful job has been done with collection drives that the post has enough general items/clothes to last until our Afghan friends have left. Thank you for your generosity.
