The congregation continued to grow, but eventually declined as the industries in West Pittsburg slowly faded out. In 1968 after a merger of several denominations on the national level the church, now part of the new United Methodist Church (UMC) organization, became known as the West Pittsburg United Methodist Church. The small congregation was proud to celebrate 100 years of service in 2005, but dwindling attendance saw the church close its doors in 2019. (Aug 2015) Full Size

Sadly, according to a New Castle News article on 1/20/20, this church closed in 2019.

(EDITOR’S NOTE) Tim, thanks for the update. I saw that recently but can’t find the actual date. I’ll be updating the page soon. Looks the United Methodist Church is having serious issues as the national level as well. Thanks again! Jeff
