ACMAR...A Bit Of History
Acmar makes disciples of Jesus Christ by worshiping God, proclaiming Jesus, and serving others.
Founded in 1908 by Henry DeBardeleben and managed by his son, Charles, Acmar was a
coal mining community. There were coal mines, homes, shops, post office, commissary, doctor’s office, schools, and churches. Our church building was built circa 1920 by the Alabama Fuel and Iron Company and its employees.
It was dedicated by Charles F. DeBardeleben with the following prayer:
“Father, make the door of this house we have erected to Thee wide enough to receive all those who need human love and fellowship and a Father’s care and narrow enough to shut out all envy and hate.”
It is a privilege for Acmar United Methodist Church to worship in this original building adapted for today’s needs. We welcome you to worship with us in our building or visit our adjacent Prayer Garden.
Belinda G. Wilson, Pastor
I am blessed to have been the pastor of Acmar United Methodist Church since June, 2000. I am married to Andy Wilson and we have two children and four grandchildren.
Two significant Bible verses for living my life are:
So Jesus answered and said, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your strength, and with all your mind, and your neighbor as yourself.” (Luke 10:27)
For I know the plans that I have for you,” says the Lord, “ plans for your welfare and not for harm to give you a future with hope.”
I would love to have you worship with us or attend one of our gatherings.
