Although Fort Hill United Methodist Church began in 1899, services were not always held in the current building. In May of 1953, a fund-raising campaign began for a new Church Sanctuary. The first service in the new Sanctuary was held on March 10, 1955. That Sanctuary is still in use today.

The Fort Hill United Methodist Church Sanctuary is used for worship services, communion, weddings, baptisms, funerals, special music events and more. The congregation that worships in the Fort Hill UMC church building are welcoming, loving, and consider three main principles: Connecting people with a living God and a community of believers, Growing as followers of Jesus Christ, and Serving out of love for God and based to our individual gifts.
