Immediately, God worked in mighty and powerful ways and breathed new life into IFUMC. We began worship at Pleasant Grove Elementary School. In the following days, office space was rented and as we partnered with other local businesses, we embraced new, creative ways to do church!
Eighteen acres of land located at 1140 Turner Camp Road was purchased on December 31, 2015. This property will become IFUMC's new church home. The Church Office is now located on the new church property in an existing single family home that has been converted into a very nice office space. In the coming months, a new multipurpose church campus will be designed and built. The North Central District of the Florida Conference of the United Methodist Church has approved the initial building project, a contractor has been hired, and building will soon commence.
After nearly three years of worshipping in Pleasant Grove Elementary School's cafeteria, we have now rented a "temporarily permanent" space at 130 Heights Avenue, Inverness, next door to Angelotti's Pizza. This will allow a place for weekly worship and other activities while our new church campus is being built.
IFUMC continues to worship God, study the Scriptures, build relationships, and serve the Inverness community. We are a church that offers Christ's love and hope to all. Come grow with us!
Throughout these entirely unexpected years filled with many challenges and transitions, IFUMC knows these things for certain: God always provides! God makes all things new!
