BC: Janes United Methodist Church

FC: A Tribute to Reverend James Jones | Janes United Methodist Church

1: True instruction was in his mouth and unrighteousness was not found on his lips; he walked with Me in peace and uprightness, and he turned many back from iniquity. Malachi 2:6 NASB | Thank you for all your years of service!

2: Our first services took the form of occasional revival meetings. Following a revival in 1849, several converts started regular church meetings in a frame schoolhouse on Pearl Street in Rising Sun. In 1852, Edwin Haines donated a lot for construction of a Methodist church. It cost $1800 to build and was dedicated in 1855. By 1871, there were 85 members. | JANES HISTORY | In 1871, having outgrown the building, a new church was built which cost $12,000. In 1878, the church was incorporated and designated Janes Methodist Episcopal Church. It was named for Bishop Edmund S. Janes of New York, a highly regarded and eloquent preacher. In 1919, the church was modernized at a cost of $6,000 which included new carpet, new organ and new paint. The church was destroyed in a fire two years later.

3: A new church was erected on the same site at a total cost of $45,000. It was dedicated in November of 1923. In 1924, a tent revival was held in which 125 persons were converted and 85 members added to the membership of the church. A pipe organ was purchased and installed in 1925. The church was remodeled in 1925 to conform to John Wesley's idea of a "house of worship." The church celebrated its 100th anniversary in 1954.

4: In 1988, with a membership of 465 and growing, the church purchased 6.55 acres of land adjacent to the Post Office for $200,000 which was paid off by 1992. Phase One was a building completed in 1995 which housed administrative offices, Sunday school classrooms, a kitchen and fellowship hall. | Phase Two, a 20,000 square foot addition was completed in 2004. This completed the existing state of the art sanctuary, new fellowship hall and additional classroom space.

5: Phase Three is conceptualized as an addition which will include more classrooms, basketball and volleyball courts, as well as an all purpose worship area for contemporary services. Reverend James Jones has guided the church to active participation in missions, both locally and beyond. The church supports the Precious Times Play School, as well as the Ray of Hope Missions and the Fellowship of Christian Athletes.
