Since 1838, a community that loves God and loves people has been meeting at the corner of State Road 63 and Kennett Drive in Prairieton, Indiana. In that 185 years, a lot has changed. Buggies have been replaced with SUVs; programmable thermostats have replaced wood stoves and smokers no longer line up outside between services. What remains unchanged though, is our worship of God, our devotion to Jesus, and our love for our little town. We are working hard to become the place people go when they’re celebrating, the people they call when they’re hurting, and the home they return to when they’re worshipping.
As United Methodists, our mission is clear. We are called to “make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.” We hope you will join us in this mission.
Each Sunday at 10:30 AM, we come together as a community for fellowship, prayer, music, readings, and a sermon to honor and praise God, our Creator and Father, Jesus, his Son and our Savior, and the Holy Spirit who lives within us. Through this time of worship, we are taught, empowered, and sent out into our community to share wisdom, kindness, and faith.
In addition to worship services, we offer two weekly Bible studies and a new small group meeting on Sunday nights for fellowship, prayer, and study. The Third Friday group meets once a month for dinner at a local restaurant just for fun and good food. We have a book club for all our book lovers. Kids can make friends at children’s church. Our Facebook page is active and is a great place to find information and encouragement. Got an idea for connecting in our community? We’d love to hear it!
The sky’s the limit! We need your gifts, talents, and skills as we grow! God brings people He can work through to grow his church. We are looking for encouragers, leaders, administrators, teachers, singers, people who love to work with their hands, and people who love technology. We are looking for artists, and writers, and plumbers. We are looking for carpenters, accountants, designers, and educators. We’re looking for people committed to serving God and serving others.
“They committed themselves to the teaching of the apostles, the life together, the common meal, and the prayers.” Acts 2:42
