Our church was first organized here in Honey Brook in 1823, and since then we have been reaching many generations of local residents for Jesus Christ. When we were first organized in 1823, we were known as Honey Brook Methodist Episcopal Church.
For those who need it, we have a chair-lift to the sanctuary.
We are a small church where you will have an opportunity to get to know everyone and make new friends. We hope you will worship with us!
In 1899, Lela McConnell, a teenage girl, came to know Jesus Christ at a revival held at Honey Brook Methodist Episcopal Church. She went on to become an ordained local elder in the Methodist Episcopal Church, serving in the mountains of Eastern Kentucky. Through her teaching, evangelism and leadership, Kentucky is blessed with the Kentucky Mountain Bible College and other ministries that spread the Gospel to the people of that region. In Rev. McConnell's spirit, our goal is to make Disciples that will have an equally profound influence in our world today.
Here is an article from the Journal of the Historical Society of the EPA Conference that is in the archives of the Historic St. Georges UMC in Philadelphia. The article, Hand Maiden From Honey Brook:
