In the early morning hours of Sept. 3, 2020, a fire destroyed the education building of Old Church United Methodist Church, Mattaponi. The sanctuary building suffered smoke damage.
We would like to thank the many firefighters from the units of Central King & Queen, Lower King & Queen, Walkerton, Waterview, Urbanna, Gloucester and the King & Queen Emergency Service Team, all who were dedicated to saving as much as possible of our place of worship. The fire could have caused much more damage, if not for the person passing by at 2 a.m., seeing the flames and calling it in. So many thanks to that person also. May each of you be blessed for the service that was provided.
