According to our historical records, the spiritual camaraderie of Methodists began on February 1, 1888. In 1889, with only twelve souls in attendance, the first official Methodist church in Pennellville was organized and trustees were duly elected. In 1939 there was a 50th Anniversary Program. It started with a lunch on Saturday and went though the entire day on Sunday. Today we have monthly fundraising dinners and everyone is well-fed. We get rave reviews on these monthly meals and have people coming from many of the surrounding communities including the city of Syracuse.
  In 1962 the original church which was located on Sutton Road was destroyed by fire. The prompt commitment to a building program under the leadership of Rev. Jim Spear and a generous gift of land revealed the tenacity and determination of the Methodist Christians at Pennellville to survive, rebuild and thrive. On December 8, 1963, 
a consecration service was held and the new church was dedicated. Recently, the education wing was completed. We have room to grow.
All Methodists became United Methodists in 1968 when we merged with the Evangelical United Brethren. We are now the Pennellville United Methodist Church serving God, following Christ and inspired
by the Holy Spirit. Come join us!
