     This congregation was organized in 1877, shortly after the railroad town of Handley was established. The Rev. J.J. Cannafax, who was the first minister, also served as the town's first school teacher. Services were held in the one room schoolhouse until a Union Church was built in 1882. The Methodist congregation shared the building with Baptists, Presbyterians, and other denominations until 1907. The bell at this site is from the Old Union Church. Although Handley now is a part of Fort Worth, the Handley United Methodist Church maintains a rich heritage and tradition of service. (1985)
