For over 120 years there’s been a YMCA in the Sumter Community. In the early years, members met together on Sunday afternoons and conducted religious services on the upper floor of Armory Hall above the present day Powell’s on Main. Laymen conducted prayer meetings, and the ministers of the town encouraged them by their presence and council.
Today, The YMCA of Sumter still embodies that spirit of practicing Christian principles in all programs that we offer to the Sumter community. Who is the YMCA of Sumter? It’s a group of people, members, volunteers, and employees who care about Sumter’s families and do everything they can to help the community live, grow, and thrive. A timeline of the YMCA of Sumter weaves the history of this organization.
To put Christian principles into practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind and body for all.
To impact life successes of all individuals, strengthen family bonds, develop youth, promote healthy living, and foster a strong sense of belonging and community connectivity through social responsibility.
