We are a small but growing church just outside Lakeville, Indiana that was established in 1880. While we cherish our heritage we are also constantly updating our ministries and worship services to be culturally relevant to today's world. We focus on the three values of Biblical Instruction, Evangelism and Outreach. We are associated with a group of churches called United Brethren which also has a rich heritage (established 1767). The best known United Brethren entity is Huntington University in Huntington, Indiana. For more information contact us. Thank you!
