The 140 year history of Thorndale United Methodist Church began in 1878, when early settlers felt the need for a more conveniently located church for worship and Sunday School. The church was originally built across from where the Thorndale Fire House is today. By 1889, a parsonage was built next to the church, with most of the construction done by men and women of the church.
Throughout its history TUMC has enjoyed an active role in Thorndale and the surrounding area, welcoming many residents as members, and contributing to the well-being of the community in multiple ways.
