      We are so glad you have chosen to visit our web site.  We hope that you will find the site a welcome introduction to the people of the Boothsville United Methodist Charge.  The Boothsville Charge is made up of three congregations south of Fairmont, West Virginia--Boothsville United Methodist Church, Eldora United Methodist Church, and Janes Memorial United Methodist Church.  We envision ourselves as one church worshipping on three different campuses. 

     We are a people on a journey of faith who welcome all who would journey with us.  We seek together to foster the richness of faith, the search for truth, the power of hope, and the nurture of a loving and accepting community.  We seek to witness to our faith in the Person and Teachings of Jesus Christ and the power that faith has in bringing transformation to ourselves and to the world.  Check out the "About Us" link to the left for service times and the "Upcoming Events" link for events information. Thank you for "stopping by".  Please receive this prayer of blessing: 

                 May the Light of God surround you;

                 the love of God enfold you; 

                 the power of God protect you;

                 the wisdom of God guide and direct you;

                 so that wherever you go, you will know God is with you.
