Page Memorial is a warm and welcoming congregation. The folks at Page are excited about what God is doing in the lives of people in the church and beyond the walls of the church. It is our prayer and desire that all who gather here in worship will experience the love of Christ and find encouragement for living a Christ-centered life.
The mission of Page Memorial is "Win to Christ, Grow in Christ, and Serve for Christ." We believe that as God's children we are called to be in mission and our most important task is to meet needs of others in our community and the world around us. John Wesley stated that the world was his parish, and we take seriously the call of Christ to go into all the world offering the Good News of Jesus Christ. Jesus says in Matthew 28:19-20, "Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing then in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey all that I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age."
We invite you to join us in our mission to introduce people to Christ, grow as disciples, and seek to alleviate suffering in the world. If you have any questions or if we can assist you in any way please contact us via our Online Form or call the church office at 910.944.1093.
Allison Page moved his family of five sons, and three daughters to Blue's Crossing and built a new home facing the railroad about a mile from the center of present day Aberdeen (formerly Blue’s Crossing). Blue's Crossing was described as being about 1,000 people, with good schools, eight comfortable churches, a town hall, public library, nine stores, three mills, one foundry and machine shop, one wagon and repair shop, one weekly newspaper, two hotels, and railroads which ran in five directions
The Methodist Episcopal Church, South sent Reverend Frank Shamburger to the Sandhills area to start new Sunday School classes with the hopes of organizing new churches. One of these, met here, in a log cabin near old Bethesda Church. Along with Allison and Catherine Page, Pastor Shamburger and later, Pastor Smith, Pastor Jackson, and Pastor Chafin shared the faith and the little group grew until by 1889, it was ready to be organized as a church.
And Our Church was Born! Allison Page and others with much heart built our first church. We were known, then, as Aberdeen Methodist Episcopal Church, South. Our first sanctuary stood on the spot of our current one. It served our congregation from 1889 to 1913.
Page has always been about leading people closer to Christ. We serve to be a light to the greater Aberdeen-Sandhills community. Many people are inspired as they worship with us and are moved by the beauty of our sanctuary, which was designed by Architect J.M. McMichael, who also designed Myers Park Presbyterian in Charlotte. As you enter our sanctuary you will feel God's love and discover a warm welcome.
Page Memorial on Main Street in Aberdeen is a place where hearts are lifted up and grace received!

Page is proud of being a church that helped to found another congregation.
