History -- Since the Lyle United Methodist Church will celebrate 100 years this year we thought we would print its history.
The Sunday School group has been an active part of the church, as well as the youth groups and the ladies' organization. While membership in the church has been small, it has been active in many ways, both in the church and in the community. Support for mission groups, help in community crisis and special needs has been generous. The building is available for special uses of the community and the New Hope Farms and special school center has been helped as needs have arisen. It truly has been and is now a church of the community - Lillian Hamm
