The start was humble with a simple white frame church erected in 1878 on the corner of Lafayette and Second St. It didn't take long to reach so many in our community and outgrow our first church.


Since 1878 we have reached 10,000s in our community through our worship services, children and youth programs, community service, and working with our neighbors.


We strive to develop disciples of Jesus Christ by meeting everyone where they are and walking with them in their journey with God.


We have a place for you to join us!

Our Faith

We believe in The Father, The Son, and The Holy Spirit.

Our faith is as ancient as the words of scripture and as contemporary as today's challenges.

We look to John Wesley as the patriarch of our theological heritage and witness.

His words of invitation continue to inform the United Methodist way of following Jesus.


Wesley said, "If your heart is right, give me your hand."

We invite you to experience the transformation that can come to a human heart through the grace of Jesus Christ.
