Gather with friends, family and neighbors after worship for a time of fellowship and refreshments.The church in Montrose dates back to 1858, when at least 10 families decided to join together and help each other live the Christian life. This group of settlers was called the Virginia settlement, Then the Fountain Lake Settlement and finally the Montrose Methodist Church, first services were held in Ezra Stacy's log Cabin.
In 1881 a frame church was built on Buffalo St. In the fall of 1952 a meeting was called by Rev. A L Olney to make a decision of building a new church. On Sept. 13 1953 the cornerstone was laid and the new church was ready for worship Feb. 7, 1954
