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.

Sketch of the Rev. George S. Brown

This is a sketch (the only image that has been identified to date) of the Rev. George S. Brown, drawn by Henry Mack of Hardwick (who was probably about 13/14 years old at the time.)  You can view a video about Rev. Brown's ministry at http://www.mychamplainvalley.com/news/hidden-history-reverend-george-s-brown/648629943.

Church with Historic Roadside Marker

Rev. Brown oversaw the construction of the church building in 1856.  If you would like to visit the church and learn more about Geo. S. Brown, please contact Rev. Pat Thompson at 888-2185 or pajt8817@aol.com

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 newly repaired marker has just been reinstalled this week and is available for viewing once again..  Thank you for your patience. 

WUMC Approved for State Register of Historic Sites

In October, the Wolcott UMC was officially approved to be listed on the State Register of Historic Sites, another step in our process to honor our founder, the Rev. George S. Brown.
