Main Street United Methodist Church began in 1852 as one of the Mississippi Coast’s earliest churches.  The church, which has been located in the heart of Bay Saint Louis’ Old Town for over 150 years, has had a long and colorful history.  It has grown and changed alongside the community, riding out Hurricane Camille and Hurricane Katrina. Main Street UMC continues to be active in the community as well as offer a space where we may all grow in love for God, God’s words, God’s people and God’s world.

What can I expect to experience on a Sunday morning (and what do I wear?):

  • The morning Traditional Service follows the traditional liturgical calendar.

  • Our music is led by the Chancel Choir and most of our congregational music is taken from the hymnal.

  • The Renew Service is led by our worship team.

  • Come as you are! Some dress in their Sunday best, others come in shorts and flip flops… you’ll fit right in.

  • Main Street has a casual and laid back feel that matches that of the Mississippi Gulf Coast. Come how you feel most comfortable!

Do you have childcare?

  • Child Care available from 9am - 12pm on Sundays and the nursery is available for all children birth to 4 years of age.

  • We have paid nursery staff and volunteers, and offer pagers to parents during the service.

  • Everyone who works with children and youth at Main Street must undergo a Background check.

  • Any event with children or youth is supervised by 2 unrelated adults in accordance with the Methodist Church’s Safe Sanctuary Policy.

How can I meet people and get connected?

  • Join us for coffee and snacks every Sunday following the service in our Rebecca Hall, located near the sanctuary. This is a great time to meet others in the church!
