The forerunner of Methodism in this area was a circuit rider sent from a mission in Chicago who erected a small mission on the north bank of Horse Creek.

But it was not until 1900 that the first sanctuary to be known as St. Paul´s Methodist Church was started. The building was completed in 1902.

The church shared its first pastors with other churches in the area: sometimes with Indian River City, other times with the Methodist Church in Fellsmere.

The present sanctuary was completed in 1957
