The Cataumet United Methodist Church represents over 200 years of Christian Ministry. Our sanctuary building began as an Indian Meeting House in 1765. Located in Bournedale, it was used in the ministry to the Plymouth Colony Native Americans. Years later it was dismantled, moved to So. Pocasset (Cataumet) and reconstructed in what is now the cemetery grounds. In 1893, it was moved across the street to its present location. Over the years the building has undergone renovations, such as the addition of a fellowship hall. In 1996 the front entry was remodeled and a handicap lift installed.
The Cataumet United Methodist Church has continued through the years to be a welcoming place of worship and warm fellowship. As you enter our beautiful colonial sanctuary, we hope you will take a moment to reflect upon the past history of our church. As you worship with us, may you be inspired and find peace. As you leave our church, may you do so with a sense of fellowship that beckons your return. You are most welcome in our
As a United Methodist congregation we are a Protestant church whose streams of spiritual life and thought flow from the early Christian church to the present. We share the common historical and spiritual heritage of the Methodist Church, founded by the Rev. John Wesley; and the Evangelical United Brethren Church, founded by Philip Otterbein. United Methodists have been called the "most American" of the Christian churches.
