About us

 

Who Are We? Historic White Marsh Church is an independent, Bible believing, Bible teaching, and Christ loving Church. We are made up of Christians who have come from diverse backgrounds, who are going to the same place (heaven) because of Jesus Christ our Savior.

 

People have worshiped the Lord on the grounds of Historic White Marsh Church since 1792 and He will be worshiped there once again this Sunday morning. "To God be the glory, great things He hath done!" With the help of God and His people, this church will move forward in His work and service. 

 

This church exists to bring God glory and to minister to the needs of people. If we can be of any help to you, please let us know. Thank you for encouraging the work of this church.  I hope that you enjoy the fellowship of the people and the teaching of God's Word.  May God's richest blessings be yours.

 

Sincerely,

Rev. Wesley Hall

Church Building History

 

September 17, 1792 – White Marsh Church was officially organized. The land was donated by George Brent Jr. and his wife, Sarah, for the sum of five shillings. The original building was a log structure and was referred to by the bishop as the "Lancaster Meeting House".

1848 – Original log structure was replaced with the present brick structure

1966 – An annex was added to the back of the church

2002 – White Marsh United Methodist congregation was decommissioned and closed for services

2010 – The United Methodist Conference turned over the building and cemetery to the Historic White Marsh Church, Inc. 

2014 – Historic White Marsh Church services began

2022 – Victory Fellowship Hall and a parking lot were added

Fun Facts: What we know today as the back of the church, was originally the entrance and the chancel had a high pulpit. The entrance and pulpit location were later changed to their present location, both facing road frontage. The original kerosene lamps on cast iron brackets were at some point converted to electric and continue to hang from the pillars today.
