Welcome to Canaan United Methodist Church website, We hope this site help you learn more about us and our witnesses for Christ. We strive to recognize and nurture the Christ within our selves and all those whom we encounter along the way.

Our church is a thriving community of believers of the Word. Canaan UMC has a long tradition of outreach and service to its members and the community. We hope that you will join us on Sunday to experience, for yourself, the fellowship of Christ with us.
