Donnally Mills United Methodist Church is located along Route 17 in the west end of the village of Donnally Mills, a very rural area in Perry County.
Like all United Methodist congregations our mission is to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world. We have been leading people to Christ and serving our community for more than 160 years.
If you like a friendly, caring, supportive rural church atmosphere, come join us in worship on Sunday mornings. You will enjoy the fellowship and an inspiring worship service. Our congregation, though small, is practical, spiritually-focused, mission minded, loving and always glad to greet new people and share our faith.
See you on Sunday at 8:30 am.
