Church History

The year 1917 marks the beginning of the church’s history.  A few members of the Queenstown community met at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Grant Gaither, for the purpose of organizing a church to serve the needs of the community.   The basic plans and programs were established and at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Howard Gaither on 4th Avenue in Glen Burnie, a church was organized.  The Reverend W. N. Holt was the first pastor of a small charge.  He named the church after the larger Metropolitan Methodist Church of Baltimore with hopes that it would become another dominant church.  The founders of the church were Augustus Travers, Charles Wallace, Charles Toogood, George Hall, Howard Gaither, and Rufus Harrod. Mr. Harry Donaldson built the original church and donated the bell.  A bell ringing service was held in 1918.

My wife Regina grew up in this church and I came in the summer of 1959, as her young husband, when I was discharged from the U. S. Air Force. In the fall of 1967, after much coaxing by the elders, I reluctantly accepted the position of Building Committee Chairman but through GOD’s grace, and the tolerance of the Metropolitan family, we moved into our new building in September 1976. I have served in a number of official positions since 1976 and as I approach the end of my 60th year as a member of this church and step down from the last official position I will hold I reflect on a faith journey which only GOD could have envisioned and thank HIM for delivering me to a wonderful place called Metropolitan United Methodist Church of Severn, Maryland.

Why Did You Join Metropolitan United Methodist Church (MUMC)?
Well, glad you asked, Let me count the reasons:
MUMC’s congregational family atmosphere, that was important being that I was raised in family-oriented church. MUMC’s commitment to ministering within the community. MUMC allowed me to grow spiritually, primarily due to close association with the Pastors. MUMC allows me to understand the business aspect of the church and how that integrates into the ministries of the church. Most importantly, MUMC’s commitment to making disciples of Jesus Christ.

I was content for years to just come to church to hear a sermon and enjoy the gospel music. But there came a time when I decided that God wanted more from me. I stepped out on faith to give my time and efforts to do work that I felt God would have me to do to the best of my ability. This has been so fulfilling and a blessing to me.
