Who We Are

At Strawbridge, we develop and empower spiritual leaders and commission them to transform the communities they serve.

Welcome to Strawbridge United Methodist Church, a vibrant and welcoming faith community nestled in the heart of New Windsor, Maryland. Our church is more than just a place of worship; it’s a home where people from diverse backgrounds come together to celebrate faith, grow spiritually, and serve the local community.

Our History

At Strawbridge, we develop and empower spiritual leaders and commission them to transform the communities they serve.

The Strawbridge United Methodist Church was established ca. 1916, as Smith Chapel (1916-1917). The land belonged to Joe Smith whose daughter Terri Englar, employed Hattie (Thompson) Hill as a domestic worker. Hattie Hill encouraged the Englar family to donate the land for church use only (hence the original name, Smith Chapel). The current church building was completed in 1918 under the leadership of the Reverend Isaac R. Berry, and the church became Strawbridge Methodist Episcopal Church. The cemetery in front of the church, adjacent to Route 31 (St James Cemetery) can be attributed to African-American men who worked for Lehigh Cement, Union Bridge.

Worship and Fellowship

At Strawbridge, we develop and empower spiritual leaders and commission them to transform the communities they serve.

Through heartfelt sermons, uplifting music, and sincere prayer, our worship services aim to inspire, comfort, and challenge you on your faith journey.
