McCordsville United Methodist Church

"A church steeped in tradition, embracing today."

From our Church’s humble beginnings as a classroom at the Robb School House, to the dedication of our current sanctuary on September of1922, to our consecration service of our new modern wing in January of 2010, the McCordsville United Methodist Church has stood by its mission through the years of carrying Christ’s message in all we do especially to our community.

What started out as a tiny gathering of McCordsville’s first families has blossomed into a loving, caring community of individuals and families who seek to prosper Christ’s rich and abundant love through works of faith and service to one another.  Through traditions such as our annual summer Lord’s Acre Festival, which has its roots back to 1952, with a parade and silent auction topping two-days worth of festivities.  We also offer traditional Methodist groups such as the United Methodist Men’s and Women’s Groups which all are welcome and encouraged to join.  We remember to serve and care for our senior community members through visitation services monthly at Westminster Village as we continue carrying God’s promise and expression of love to them through our Vesper Services.

In January 2010, we held the consecration service for a new addition to our church which allowed us to better serve our community with our popular community meals that serve not only those looking to socialize and enjoy a good meal but those in our community who may also be in need of a low cost food option.  We look forward to continuing and expanding the attendance of these popular gatherings.

Finally, come worship with us every Sunday.  We offer child care and Sunday School for you and your family and as always, if you or someone you know is in need of prayer, we are here for you guidinglove@hrtc.net or (317) 335-3819.  We look forward to serving you!

Learn About Our Upcoming Lord's Acre Festival

Lord's Acre Festival is September 7-10th 2017

Lord's Acre History; From the memoirs of Herman Literal...

     In 1952, a group of men in the McCordsville United Methodist Church decided to establish a fund drive that wouldn't be taxing to the people and still wouldn't fade out overnight.  Some investigation took place at other churches and communities and the Lord's Acre was born in this community.  This being (at that time) mostly a farming community, it was decided to give to the church the proceeds of one acre of harvested grain.  Since the harvest is in the fall of the year, a Harvest Festival seemed the best time to present this to the Lord's Acre Fund.  To those who were not farmers, other methods were set up by individuals to their own liking.  For instance, the grocer gave the money collected in his Coke machine.  One lady who raised chickens and sold eggs gave the income received for Sunday eggs. Some men decided on giving the first hour's wages earned every Monday morning.  A Lord's Acre bank account was started and as it grew, this group of Methodist Men (with a lot of help from their spouses) began to prosper and thus started procedures towards building a much-needed parsonage as well as a program for future maintenance of the church.  A two-day festival was held with a fish fry starting the festivities on Friday evening.

     Every festival and parade needs a queen and this honor was bestowed on a young lady of the congregation who had shown her interest in church and Sunday School activities throughout the year and chosen by the Methodist Men.  The crowning of the queen was the highlight of Friday evening along with free local entertainment.  Saturday's special has always been chicken and noodles for the noon meal along with fish, etc.  This was followed by a parade of floats and projects, then a band concert from the local high school and continuing with the fish fry and more entertainment on Saturday night.  One of our Saturday highlights is a Community Auction on Saturday afternoon.  For the past several years, the United Methodist Women have made a quilt to be auctioned at this time.  Once again, there is interest in a Saturday morning parade and rented craft booth spaces for those desiring to display and sell their crafts.

     Having the festival entails a lot of hard work by everyone, but an abundant amount of fellowship and fun, faithful giving and our true faith in God prevail.  Housing being what it is today, we were able to make a change in our parsonage and purchase a house across the street for that purpose. In the meantime, we sincerely hope to continue with our Lord's Acre Festival and combination home-coming activities and shall always remember those who are no longer with us, but have allowed us to be who and what we are today.
