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

You can expect to be welcomed with a smiling face and open arms. Everyone is welcome in our building no matter who you are or where you come from. Come as you are. We have no dress codes. Some people like to dress up a bit and others wear shorts and t-shirts. Both are welcome. We want you to feel comfortable while you are here. Jesus didn’t wear a suit and tie so we don’t think you should have to either. If you are new, we would be happy to show you around our building. Just ask one of our greeters or ushers and we will be happy to help.

A Brief History

1849 - a group of residents in town began a class in the Robb School house.

1854 - The first church in McCordsville as built and dedicated Gillum Chapel in honor of Rev. N.H. Gillum.  The chapel was located North of the railroad tracks just West of Olio Road.  Gillum Chapel Cemetery was located next to the church and can be visited today.

1902 - A storm destroyed Gillum Chapel and a new building was constructed. That building stood just a few blocks east of our present location. At the time it was know as McCordsville Methodist Episcopal Church.

1921 - the growth in town required that a new church building be constructed. Construction started and the cornerstone and time capsule was dedicated in 1921.

1922 - Construction was completed and our current building opened in September that year.

2009 - the first expansion in 87 years brought the addition of our beautiful fellowship hall, kitchen, classrooms, offices, restrooms and added ADA accessibility to our sanctuary. The expansion opened in November 2009 for our Thanksgiving dinner.

2018 - We built and dedicated “Matthew’s Playground” on June 7th. Our playground is open to the entire community. We raised over $29,000 in 8 months with the help and generosity of local businesses, members of the community, and church members.

Name *

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.

In addition to being our Worship Leader for our 9:30 Service, Tim also serves as Choir Director and Chairman of the Worship and Praise Team. Tim oversees all music for the McCordsville United Methodist Church.

Tim finds his life verse in Philippians 4:13 
"I can do all things through Christ, who strengthens me."
