Welcome to Benevola United Methodist Church

Welcome to our website. We hope you will find the information you are looking for.

Benevola United Methodist Church has a rich history. The name "Benevola" comes from the original name of the small farm community where it is located about two miles west of Boonsboro, MD, just off Alternate Rt. 40. People often ask us, "What does Benevola mean?" The word is an adjective which comes from the Latin language and is defined as "well-wishing, kind, benevolent, devoted." That certainly describes our community and our church very well.

We honor our history but we are also committed to moving into the future as we continually seek to grow our various ministries. I hope you will find something here that will be helpful to you and your family.

Please accept our open invitation to come and be with us at Benevola UMC in this beautiful setting.
Bountiful Blessings
Benevola is a part of a program called Bountiful Blessings. This program allows us to provide items not covered by food stamps (i.e., disposable diapers, paper towels, toilet paper, cleaning supplies, personal hygiene products, etc.) to those in need. Each family requesting to be a part of the program is interviewed and receives items according to their specific needs. Bountiful Blessings takes place at our church on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of each month. We provide this service as part of our community outreach, but families are eligible regardless of where they live.
