Churches all across America are taking unprecedented measures to help contain the spread of the coronavirus known as COVID-19.  

Blacksburg United Methodist Church is no exception!  

Our Healthy Church Team (HCT) continues meeting to monitor the requirements of the Virginia Conference UMC, the guidance of our elected officials, and advice from health experts in order to determine when and how we will begin offering opportunities for in-person worship and other church functions.
