Pulaski Methodist

(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 related to that series of posts.)

Francesville and Medaryville both have large United Methodist Churches and they look much alike. The Francesville United Methodist Church is located at 110 N Salem. It does not seem to have a website, but there is info about it here and here. The church was built in 1904 and is in the Late Gothic Revival style.
The Medaryville Methodist Church is at 113 N Jefferson (or maybe 132 N Jefferson--I found two addresses for it). It was built in 1902. It shares a pastor with the Francesville Church. More information is here and here.
Virtually all the towns in this area have large Methodist churches that date from the late nineteenth or early twentieth centuries. Other United Methodist churches around Rensselaer include Trinity United Methodist church in Rensselaer, the Mount Ayr United Methodist Church, Brushwood United Methodist Church, Remington United Methodist Church. Kniman Methodist Church, Morocco Evangelical United Methodist Church and the First United Methodist Church of Morocco. See the link to the Trinity United Methodist Church for more on the United Methodists..
