About Us

“Welcome to Avery: where you’re a stranger only once, but a friend forever!”

That’s how one of our long-time members starts worship when serving as liturgist, and we think it’s pretty accurate! At Avery, we hope you will find a Christ-filled community of hope. Located in the heart of the Gabby Heights neighborhood across from Trinity West Elementary School, Avery serves as a spiritual center for people who live and work in Gabby Heights and the surrounding area.


Here you will find a casual worship setting, a variety of ministries for all ages, opportunities to engage in mission and service, and most of all, a congregation that truly welcomes everyone. We look forward to meeting you at our next event, worship service, or on the streets of Washington, PA!


We are proudly affiliated with the United Methodist Church, a global denomination of almost 13 million members.

Avery UMC is part of the Washington District of the Western Pennsylvania Conference.
