Our HIstory

In 1994, the Florida Conference United Methodist Church sensed that there was an unserved mission field in Fleming Island. Dawn Lawton was asked to plant a new church, which began with volunteers from the  district using the phones from a local bank to call people and invite them to church. 


The first Sunday, the congregation met at Paterson Elementary School with 250 people. In October of 1995 the church was chartered and a WWII Army Chapel was moved down the street from its location at Orange Park UMC. 


Pastor Dawn continued to lead the church as they built a new office building and then a Fellowship Hall that would serve as the Worship Center.
