to the United Methodist Church of Naugatuck. We are a warm and friendly congregation who believe strongly in the term, Family of God. We seek to be in ministry and prayer together building relationships with each other as we grow in our relationship with God. We encourage families to worship together. Our church has a long history of being missions-minded especially with those in need in the Naugatuck Valley. We hope that you will feel welcome here.


Our Hearts, Our Minds, Our Doors, Are Always Open.”

Who we are…
In 1729, two young men in England, reading the Bible, saw they could not be saved without holiness: followed after it, and invited others to do so. God then thrust them out to raise a holy people. These are the words of John and Charles Wesley, founders of Methodism.

Methodism arrived in Naugatuck in 1797, where it has flourished for 214 years. Located at 208 Meadow Street, our church provides a place to practice and grow your faith, in a safe and loving environment. All who believe in Jesus Christ, as Lord and Savior are welcome, and received with the love and support of fellow Christians.

Our faithful members have supported missions locally and throughout the world. We believe with God all things are possible, and our prayers have been answered with many wonderful events including both physical and spiritual healings. Our Sunday School and adult studies provide a welcoming atmosphere to all.

Do you want a church…
  •  where people welcome and accept you as you are? 
  •  where you can experience a sense of purpose and belonging? 
  •  with messages and Bible teachings that are relevant to everyday life and uplifting? 
  •  with no confusing religious jargon? 

We want to be that church for you!


If you’re searching for new meaning in life, our hearts, our minds and our doors are always open.
