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.

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.

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.
