In 1952, a group of men in the McCordsville United Methodist Church decided to establish a fund drive to build a parsonage. It was decided that this was primarily a farming community, that each farmer would give profits of one Acre of their harvest to the church for this special fund. Those who were not farmers found other Lord's Acre projects. 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. The two-day festival has been held every year since then.
Even though the church and community has changed over the years, the festival continues to change and grow as well. The Lord's Acre fund continues to grow and support emergency building maintenance or special projects to improve our facilities.
The festival takes a lot of hard work by everyone, but the reward comes in the fellowship, fun, faithful giving and our true faith in God. As we continue this festival, we shall always remember those who started Lord's Acre and are no longer with us in body but will always be with us in spirit.
