Going to church the Brushwood Methodist way

(I thought it would be interesting to use Sundays to focus on Rensselaer's churches and to see how many Sundays I can go before I run out of material. Indiana is richly endowed with religious denominations, with influences from North and South, East and West. This is part of that series of posts.)

Brushwood United Methodist Church is located seven miles north of Rensselaer at the intersection of US 231 and CR 200N. According to the "Church Services Directory" in the Rensselaer Republican, the pastor is Darren Williams. Sunday worship is 7:30, 8:30, and 10:45 a.m.; Sunday school is at 9:45.

As the name implies, it is part of the United Methodist Church, which is also the denomination of Trinity United Methodist Church in Rensselaer. The church has an excellent website at
The church appears to have been extended and remodeled from its original form. There is an old bell in front that may have been part of an older structure.
