 Poplar Spring United Methodist Church

Is a Christian centered, Spirit filled church.  That is focused on equipping GOD’S people to fulfill the great commission of Jesus Christian to make disciples of all nations. We seek to accomplish our mission through proclaiming the good news of salvation through Christ and by developing ministries that address the spiritual, emotional and total needs of the church and community.

Our Mission

To draw people to Christ by engaging, empowering and educating GOD’S people.

 We value… scripture, prayer, praise and worship, relationships, heritage and traditions, stewardship, service learning and change.



Poplar Spring UMC was originally founded in 1867 to 1876 when it suffered a massive fire that totally damaged the original structure.  Poplar Spring UMC ‘s new structure (church) was rebuilt in 1942. Which is the current structure that we worship in until this day!

We also have one of the only standing Historical Sam Rosenwald schools houses located on our property.  Which some of our older members attended school.
