- The first Methodist society established in the Valley of Virginia was organized at Stephensburg (renamed Stephens City in 1880), Frederick County, Virginia, about 1775 when two traveling Methodist ministers, Richard Owings and John Hagerty, preached at the home of Major Lewis Stephens. A church was built sometime in the late 1780's on land Lewis Stephens donated. In 1827 a brick church was constructed and in 1882 a new church was built. The Sunday School was established in 1817. Stephensburg Methodist Church belonged to the Winchester Circuit of the Baltimore Conference until 1891 when the circuit was divided into two charges, Stephens City and Middleton.
