Henson Chapel United Methodist Church

All Are Welcome

Mission: Reaching out, Welcoming in, Embracing all, United in Christ,                  Knowing God is Love

We feel called to create spaces to worship God, build community, and serve others.

Our worship is traditional in that we follow the basic worship structure of our Methodist heritage.  If you want to raise your hand or shout hallelujah during worship, that is accepted, as is sitting quietly and contemplating one's relationship with his/her God. We know that all true worship honors God and we want His Holy Spirit to lead us in all that we do.

“God’s Castle in the Woods”

In my hardest moments on random days I always find my way to this place. Ever since I was a child I called this place “God’s Castle in the Woods.” It is the literal first place I was ever told about God and that He loved me. Ever since this place has been my Rome, Jerusalem, Vatican, pilgrimage, etc. For me it’s a holy place where I can go to escape from myself, and the world. Many times I’ve been here sitting on the church steps at dusk counting bats as they fill up the sky, sitting in the church shelter listening to the sounds of the river and the wind moving through the trees, even laying in the church yard playing music on my phone while gazing at the arches and the stained glass windows. It’s a sanctuary where I feel closer to my Heavenly Father. This place is where my faith was born and like a magnet to metal I always find my way back here for renewal, revival, and some moments of resurrection.

Many Blessings, Todd Perry


We are blessed with a talented music director and pianist, Michael Salley, who leads the choir, the Almost Moravian Brass Band and directs special music programs for the community. The Almost Moravian Band plays preludes to worship service. However, we also welcome contemporary music and other forms of musical styles and Spiritual expression.
