Seeking New Destinations...

  "Come to me, all who are labouring and burdened, and I will refresh you. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble oat heart, and you will find your souls refreshed; my yoke is kindly and my burden light."
- Matt. 11:28-29.


Reliance United Methodist Church is nestled in the Northern Shenandoah Valley bounded by the Blue Ridge Mountains to the east and the Appalachian and Allegheny Plateaus to the west. We are located in a rural part of Warren County, Virginia on route 627 just east of Middletown. While rural, the church is convenient to both I-81 and I-66 via Route 522 and can be easily accessed from Winchester, Front Royal, Middletown and Stephens City.

Originally part of the United Brethren in Christ, the church was founded in 1840. Its alliance charter was issued in 1904. After a fire in 1887, the Church was completely rebuilt in 1897. The activity building was added in 1950. Additions and updates have been added throughout the years.

Reliance United Methodist Church is traditional; honoring its past as well as its heritage.

Music is very important to the life of the church and it has been blessed with an accomplished pianist as well as an active choir.

Whether you are a committed Christian looking for a place to worship or someone just beginning their spiritual journey, we hope you’ll find yourself at home at Reliance United Methodist Church. We invite you to be a part of our church family, to grow and strengthen your faith, and to renew or discover the joy that comes from serving Christ & your community. God’s love is unconditional, unwavering and unending. Come share in this love with us, and come experience the many ways that God is at work in our lives. We hope to see you soon!
