A People in Christ's Service
With our historic building, the Central Honesdale congregation inherits a distinct legacy.
We are both proud and humbled to be the the stewards of this legacy. We carry on the tradition of inspiring worship, quality Christian education, and life giving mission.
SERVICES HELD SUNDAY AT 8:30 & 11:00 A.M.
Mission, as service to others, is an absolutely essential part of our being and history in response to the call of God. Mission projects may be long or short term.
In recent years, we have participated in summer work camps to build and repair homes in Appalachia; we have provided financial support and regular volunteer service for the United Methodist Committee on Relief; and we have coordinated and hosted a Group Workcamp here in Honesdale in 2007. We also work alongside other faith organizations on a variety of social issues; including homelessness, domestic abuse, and children’s issues. We are a church that is actively involved in international mission as well, specifically to Haiti. We continue support to the Mission Central, the Haiti Partnership and other mission partners in a variety of ways.

Worship, Nurture & Growth
We carry on the tradition of inspiring worship, quality Christian education, and life giving mission. It’s a tradition that was established when the Methodists gathered in Honesdale in the early 19th Century. We are a living congregation with a vision of the future.
Our congregation is committed to “seek the welfare of our town. . . and pray for it;” (Jer. 33:3) for we believe that we will find our own welfare in our community, while we live here. With God, we hope to accomplish this by making our church a HOME for all. Central UMC is a diverse congregation within Honesdale, PA– age, race, economic status, education, marital status; nationality and denominational background are all represented. Yet, we all seek to be the body of Christ together as part of the United Methodist Church and the whole people of God. Although some of us come from other parts of this country,
