Built in 1881 with Gothic Revival and Italianate architectural features, the church is nestled in the heart of the Midtown National Register Historic District. Said to have Tiffany stained glass windows, the church’s immersion within a revitalized residential neighborhood makes it a great facility for continued worship and community service. According to the umc.org website, the church’s pastor is Dr. Jeffrey N. Cartwright with services held at 9:30 am Sunday mornings. Worship is traditional with organ and piano music accompaniment to the singing of hymns. The website further notes that a bazaar is held each November and the that the church supports the Uptown Soup Kitchen and Mission Central.
