Sardis UMC

We are believers in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, therefore we are a part of the family of God.  We exist to glorify our heavenly Father;  lift up the Good News of salvation by faith in Jesus Christ; minister to the needs of the community, love on those around us in the name of Jesus; worship God in an uplifting an meaningful way; and nurture an ever-deepening relationship with God the Holy Spirit.

Missional Outreach

We participate in the Buncombe County Schools BackPack Program, sending home a backpack full of healthy food to children who may not have healthy options otherwise. 

The UMW provides a hot meal to our friends at the Haywood Street Respite once a month. 

We provide a meeting space for Alcoholics Anonymous every Monday and Friday evening.

Our History


Sardis Church has existed in this area for over 150 years.  In 1853 land was donated for the purpose of building a church meeting house. The building of hand dressed lumber and wooden pegs was erected in the center of what is now Sardis Cemetary on Sardis Road. Around 1860, Sardis Church was organized as a Methodist Episcopal Church South.  In 1939 a Woman's Society was organized with 8 charter members.   In 1948 land was gifted to the church for a new building on Brevard Road.  Much of the work on the new building was done by members of the congregation.  

We currently worship in the original building on the Brevard Road site. 

In 1968, the year the Methodist Church joined with the United Evangelical Brethern Church, we became Sardis United Methodist Church.
