Interested people from other Macon Methodist Churches, including First Street, East Macon, and Cross Keys, felt a church was needed in this area. A former dairy barn was converted into a rustic church. In April 1961, the church was formed with one hundred sixty members on the roll and a parsonage was purchased. Rev. D. G. Mann preached until Rev. Paul Harwell was assigned at Annual Conference. A year later, nine Sunday school rooms were added. A Woman's Society of Christian Service, Methodist Men's Club, and Junior and Senior MYF were organized. Mr. Francis Shurling gave additional land, and on August 20, 1967, the final service in the original rustic church was held. The next Sunday, the new sanctuary was ready, and in 1970 the fellowship hall was completed.
