Church History

The early beginnings of the Basco church are unknown but approximately in 1875 the small group of Methodists agreed to buy a church building from the Presbyterians. In 1924 they added a basement, kitchen and Sunday school rooms.

In 1913 the women of the church organized the Opportunity Circle

In 1961 the church united with the Warsaw UMC as one charge. In 1976 the congregation celebrated it s centennial with a special worship service and dinner following.

Due to declining membership the church closed in 2008 and the property was sold to the local elevator company.
