About Us

Our Mission Statement

      Alexander Chapel UMC is furthering the kingdom of God through worship, evangelism, discipleship, fellowship and the sharing of our resources                       

Welcome to Alexander Chapel UMC:

               Established in 1856 Alexander Chapel UMC stands as a faithful witness to the gospel of Jesus Christ.  Today the church continues to worship God and serve the surrounding community.  We offer traditional worship and Sunday school for all ages every Sunday.  Visitors are always welcome and warmly greeted. In addition to activities at the church, we also serve the surrounding community by providing worship services monthly for a local nursing home and support North Buncombe Samaritan Ministry with ongoing food collections & financial gifts.

                    Alexander Chapel has family oriented ministry with activities for all ages as well as opportunities that bring the whole family together for worship and fellowship. We provide learning experiences to meet the varied needs of a diverse community. As part of our outreach, we offer seasonal evening programs such as our Summer Homecoming, Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas specials that are invitational celebrations for the surrounding Asheville/Weaverville community. We also participate in local community activities with other area churches.

                In the tradition of the early Methodist church, we gather often for church suppers and social gatherings to enjoy group fellowship. Our church family welcomes you to join us any time you can.  Our prayer as you leave is that you will want to return again to worship with us.  If you are looking for a church home, consider worshiping with us.
