Duncan Memorial United Methodist Church
And the King will answer and say to them, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.’
Duncan Memorial UMC lives the words of St. Matthew each day. Through mission work to our neighbors in Berryville and Clarke county and through conference mission work and the efforts of the United Methodist Committee on Relief, our faith is lived through our service to those in need.
To Make Disciples of Jesus Christ and to Share His Love.
As members of the United Methodist conference, we believe that our lives and works must be centered in Jesus Christ, to that we grow our faith that celebrates our community and helps us to serve others with love.
Duncan Memorial UMC named for
William Wallace Duncan
Elected Bishop of the Methodist Episcopal Church, South in 1886.
Building our future on the foundation of our past
From the earliest history of the Frederick/Clarke county area, a strong faith in Jesus Christ led to the formation of a "Methodist church" in the Berryville area. In the years since 1836, that church has been a mainstay in the faith journeys of many different congregations.
As part of the 180th Homecoming in 2018, John Mallery researched and wrote the complete history of the church from its earliest assemblages to its presence today at 210 East Main Street. Please enjoy the story of Duncan Memorial UMC.
