Dresden United Methodist Church is the present name of a small Methodist church in the rural community of Dresden, Texas. Organized before the Civil War, it was simply known as the Methodist Church, after the Civil War it was called Methodist Episcopal Church. In 1968 it was changed to Dresden United Methodist Church. Although it has been called several different things, present members and others call this historical church affectionately Dresden Methodist Church or just simply say Dresden Church.
In 2015, construction began on Amber Hall which provides the community and membership a place for fellowship, revivals, and Vacation Bible School. Amber Hall will give community residents a place for their family reunions, bridal or baby showers, funerals or any other reason that a large gathering place is needed. This building memorializes Amber Trobaugh - a selfless, generous young lady who helped organize the events that provided the funds to build this fellowship hall. Amber gave of her talents and time and always volunteered to do whatever she could to help make every event more successful than the previous one. We miss her enthusiasm and uncanny ability to organize down to the smallest detail. Amber Hall is a beautiful reminder of a wonderful and unselfish young woman that blessed our lives.
The next project is to restore the tabernacle/pavilion. The restoration will provide the community with a beautiful outdoor setting for birthday parties, wedding receptions and make Sunrise Services available again.
