great tradition--greater future

Perry United Methodist Church has been engaged in ministry since 1826, back with our community was just forming.  We have been used by God to impact many lives through these years.

We are leaning forward into an exciting future.  Currently, we are in the final design phase for a new Family Life Center, which will be built on the property across the street from the sanctuary (formerly the Dollar General store). Our members and friends are giving generously to get this project off the ground.
