McCordsville United Methodist Church is community of loving people that have laid aside their differences for the sake of Christ and his Kingdom. We are a community of believers that have banded together to fulfill our call through serving Christ in this world.


What to Expect

We are an small but growing church with a big heart.  Expect to be welcome with a friendly smile and open arms.  Dress how you feel comfortable.  We believe you can worship dressed casually just the same as you can dressed formally.

Traditional Service

Sunday's 9:30a. Our Traditional Service features classic hymns and prayers, our wonderful choir and a classic combination of organ and piano music.  Communion is held on the first Sunday of the month.

Modern Vintage Service

Sunday's 11:11a.  Beginning on October 7th our Church will create a new page in our rich history.  Our 2nd service is different from our traditional service, but with some of that traditional feel.  It will feature our new Praise Band with modern music and mixed with traditional prayers.  Just like our Traditional service, Communion takes place on the first Sunday of the month. 

Our History

     McCordsville church history dates back to 1849 when a group began a class in the Robb Schoolhouse. In 1854 they built the first church in McCordsville and named it Gillum Chapel in honor of Rev. N.H. Gillum.  The chapel was located North of the railroad tracks just West of Olio Road.  You can visit the Gillum Chapel Cemetery located there today. 
     In June, 1902 the Chapel was destroyed by a storm and a new building was constructed just a few blocks from where our current building stands.  It opened in September of 1902 as Methodist Episcopal Church.  In 1922 the growth of the community lead to the construction and dedication of our current building dedicated in September of 1922.
     The first expansion took place in 2010 with the addition our our Fellowship Hall, kitchen, classrooms, new office space and parking lot.
     In 2018, we built our new Community playground.  To reach out to the families of our community and our local boy and girl scouts.  Dedicated to the memory of Matthew Clegg, a member of our church who passed away in 2016 at the age of 7.

Daniel Payton - Pastor

Pastor Daniel joined us in October 2014. He has a great passion for seeing things grow, be it his family, his garden, or the church that he is serving. To Daniel, growth is something that God longs to see in our lives and in his Kingdom.  Daniel's family includes his wife Sarah, daughter Emily and son Carter.  They also have two dogs, two cats, and a variety of fish.

"I believe every single person on the face of this planet needs to know Jesus Christ in a personal and real way. I believe we all desperately need God’s grace. Why? Well, each and every single one of us is a sinner, that needs the grace of God for forgiveness. I believe that all people, no matter their background or story, should be loved in Christ like, unconditional ways. 


Tim Murfin - Worship leader

Tim has volunteered his time as Worship Leader since 2014.  Tim and his lovely wife Jill, have been attending McCordsville United Methodist Church since 2012.  Jill can be found on the Piano most weeks as part of our music team as well.
