About Us

History

Founding

Watts Chapel United Methodist Church was founded in 1892 when Nathaniel Franklin Watts and his wife, Rachel, donated 3 acres for the Watts Chapel Rest Cemetery where their children and eventually themselves are interred for ten dollars "and further consideration of encouraging and advancing the religious interest of our community."

Current Membership

Our current membership numbers 149

church members and an additional 35 church family members. Church Family are those who have not officially joined the church as full members but come regularly and donate their time and their monies to the future of Watts Chapel UMC.
