Humphreys Memorial UMC is a sweet historic church in the little community of Tornado aka Upper Falls, Kanawha County, West Virginia.

Come as you are, visitor or family or just passing through, we’d be happy to sitawhile and talk.

We have a food pantry which offers foods to about forty families a month, usually on third Saturdays.

Humphreys UMC is part of the West Virginia United Methodist Church, and our pastor Kerry Bart pastors here and in St. Albans at Lakeview UMC.

How we got started

On May 2, 1886, following a revival at Pleasant Hill Baptist Church, some of the converts organized the first Methodist Church of Tornado. An old school building located in the vicinity of the present church was donated and renovated. In 1968, the church merged with the Evangelical United Brethren Church and was named Humphreys Memorial United Methodist Church of Tornado.
