United Methodism in the state of Indiana has an uncommonly rich heritage. In fact, Indiana may be one of the few states to have congregations from all of the major predecessor bodies that became part of what we now think of as the UMC. In addition to congregations from the Methodist Episcopal Church and the Methodist Protestant Church, we have a few congregations of the Methodist Episcopal Church, South. We also have congregations of the former Evangelical Association, the United Brethren Church, and the Lexington Conference which until 1964 was a segregated conference of the Methodist Church.
