Lakehills United Methodist Church broke ground on their new fellowship hall on Tuesday, August 9, 2016. This congregation was chartered on August 2, 1959 with 23 members and they have been growing ever since. In 1993, they opened a new sanctuary building. And now, they have outgrown their original fellowship hall building.
The church has set a goal to build their new fellowship hall without taking on debt. Thus far, they have raised a little over the $300,000 of the $500,000 they will need. Hill Country District Superintendent Rev. John Wright gave devotional and consecrated the ground on which the building will reside. He said he hoped it would be for the community of Lakehills, a center for mission work, where all are welcome.
