The United Methodist Church

Welcome to the Wolcott United Methodist Church

We are a small, but faithful congregation of diverse individuals, struggling to do our best to live out our faith in Jesus Christ.  We would love to have you join us on Sunday mornings at 9:30am.  

Historic Site Marker

As far as can be determined, the WUMC is the only white United Methodist church in the country to be organized by an African American - the Rev. George S. Brown - in 1855.  It was designated an official Historic Site of the UMC in 2008.

Vermont Historic Roadside Marker

In 2010 a State of Vermont Historic Roadside Marker was installed to honor the Rev. George S. Brown.  PLEASE NOTE:  The roadside marker has been temporarily removed for repairs to the paint.  Thank you for your patience.  In the meantime, you can view a video about Rev. Brown's ministry at http://www.mychamplainvalley.com/news/hidden-history-reverend-george-s-brown/648629943
