Empowers Believers; Reaches the Community and Beyond
The history of Cary United Methodist Church began in 1888 when the Reverend Edward J. Aiken rode his bicycle from Elgin each week to lead worship in a one-room school building on High Road. As the congregation grew, the church planned a building on Spring and Charlotte Streets, which was consecrated in December 1952.
In 1960, the Church acquired 9 acres of land on First Street and built a two-story education building known as 'Wesley Hall'. The sanctuary, fellowship hall, narthex, and office space were consecrated in February 1973.
As Cary continued to grow, Cary United Methodist Church responded once again. In 1990, a third phase allowed for a large addition, and remodeling of the existing space provided better accessibility. The new addition was consecrated in November 1992.
Cary United Methodist continues to grow and adapt to the changing needs of our community, always seeking to be faithful to our mission of making disciples of Jesus Christ. With God's help, we will continue to fulfill our mission for generations.
