It’s my pleasure to welcome you to our website, and I’ll be even more delighted to meet you in person and to welcome you into this church community and its ministries. One great blessing at State Street UMC is that we have such a wide variety of ministries, programs, activities, and even worship services for people with varied interests and experiences. Another great blessing is that ours is a church family in which we can still get to know each other by name. I hope you’ll want to meet us in person, and until then, welcome to our site!
We’re not actually on State Street! Our church building is at 300 W. Valley Drive (the corner of W. Valley and Long Crescent Drive), just across from Virginia High School. When our congregation moved to this location from downtown in the 1950s, we kept the name State Street to acknowledge our identity and origins.
Our parking lot is just off of Long Crescent Drive, behind and to the right of our church building. Limited parking is available along the front drive, parallel to W. Valley Drive.
Although our “front door” is on the columned portico facing W. Valley Drive, most people enter through the double doors adjacent to the parking lot at the rear of the building.
