Effective August 1, 2017, Bishop Tracy Malone is appointing Rev. David Cottrell to the Somerton United Methodist Church, as well as continuing his appointment to the Woodsfield UMC.

Beginning on Sunday, August 6, the leadership at Somerton UMC has agreed to move the time of worship to 9 a.m. to allow Rev. Cottrell time to conduct both services and travel between the churches on Sundays.

Church members continue to grieve, after the death of Pastor Richard Wilson on May 25, as he served Somerton faithfully. Dave and Donna Cottrell will be offering their many gifts, including their compassion and care to the Somerton congregation as it is in transition.

Sunday School will follow Worship Service at 10:15 a.m. There are classes for both children and adults. The church welcomes all to join them for worship and/or Sunday School.
