Welcoming all to live, love, grow and serve.

Welcome! We're so glad you found us! We're excited to meet you! 

As restrictions are slowly lifting we are working toward in-person services.  Beginning Palm Sunday, we will begin holding 1 service each week outdoors at 11:00am.  Preregistration is highly suggested and appreciated.  In the event of rain, the service will be moved inside with a capacity of 120 including the worship team. This service will also be live streamed over our Facebook page and our YouTube channel.  We continue to use digital platforms to accomplish our mission of welcoming all to live, love, grow and serve. 

We are slowly offering more campus activities with restrictions and guidelines.  Our church offices continue to be closed and church staff is encouraged to work from home as much as possible.

You can watch on Facebook and on YouTube starting at 11:00am on Sundays.

What's Going On???

We are a very busy church and as COVID restrictions are being lifted we aren't fully back to 100%.  We are continuing to offer opportunities to engage and minister to one another.   Interested in what we're doing now? Scroll down for more information. Click the image to find out even more!

    Join us here every Sunday for live-streamed services. 

    Each service will begin at 11:00am!!

    We work very hard to provide a quality service both in-person and through live-stream.  However, as technology and outdoor environments can often be unpredictable, we ask for your patience and grace.  In the event of technical difficulties, the service will be recorded and posted shortly after its completion.

  • 11:00am In-person Worship & Registration

    We now offer an in-person worship service at 11:00am on Sunday mornings in the outdoors on the front lawn.  In the event of rain, the announcement will be made by Friday afternoon and the service will be moved inside with required masks and limited capacity.  We ask that you preregister to attend, here (click the image) or through our mobile app by Saturday at 9:00pm.

    Social distancing policies will be maintained, and face masks are required.  The service will be shorter in length and involve minimized congregational singing although adjustments will continue to be considered over time as warranted.  Volunteers will be in the there to greet, register, and direct your entrance into and exit out of the services.

    We are pleased to be able to offer these worship opportunities and will continue to monitor the situation as we strive to emerge from this pandemic.  Updates and changes to our worship opportunities will be considered by the Church Council.


  • Welcome Home - Together on the Lawn

    The past year has been a time when many of us have had acutely restless hearts because of the pandemic and the disruptions created by efforts to mitigate its spread.  The “homing instinct” for God within us has been blunted a bit since we haven’t been able to gather together for worship and fellowship in the house of God.  However, the good news is that we are closer than ever to being able to return to in-person ministries and activities.  The house of God known as Jamestown UMC is as alive as ever and we are gearing up to welcome everyone home!

    We are so blessed to have a cross on a high steeple in such a prominent location in our community.  Many of you have found your way home to God under the cross of JUMC. And we can’t wait to see what is going to happen post pandemic as people from our surrounding community begin finding their way home to God through the ministries of this church.

    We have some exciting opportunities planned and we hope that if you're reading this, you will feel eager to participate in these over then months of May, June and July.  Click the image to see the full list of plans and details.

  • Important COVID Updates

    The staff met with Church Council on Monday evening, May 3rd to discuss future worship plans, returning inside and opening back up.  While continuing to respect everyone’s safety and the strong desire to return to church, both in person and spiritually, several updates will begin to take shape.

    We will continue to offering an 11:00am service each week. Services will be held outdoors on the front lawn.  These services will be live-streamed for those unable to come or who may feel safer at home.  We continue to ask you to pre-register for services in order to keep attendance, for greeting and planning purposes.  Attendees will still need to wear masks, bring their own chairs and will be asked to socially distance themselves.

    In the event of rain or forecasted rain, the service will be moved inside with limited capacity, including the worship team.  Pastor David and Facilities Director, Tammy Forrest will make that determination on Saturday evening.  The update will be communicated via Facebook and our Mobile App.

    We continue to request calling ahead before visiting the campus.  Visits will continue to be limited to necessary business and by appointment only.

    Church-based meetings of up to 25 individuals can now be held inside.  All meetings, plans and room reservations must be communicated and reserved through Tammy Forrest.

    As more and more people are getting their vaccines and COVID numbers are dropping, we continue to look forward to the time when we are back together in every way.  We appreciate your love and support during this time as we continue to look for new and creative ways to stay connected and minister to you.


    As requested by the Bishop of the Western North Carolina Conference of the United Methodist Church and the Church Council the church offices will continue to be closed, at this time. If you need to come to the church, please call ahead.

    We will continue to evaluate as more direction comes from state and conference officials.
