Welcome to Island Heights! The history of this town is so interwoven with this church. It was in 1878 that a pastor stood by the river and had a dream that became the Methodist Camp Meeting, and in 1882 the First Methodist Church was established. Time, like the tides of the river, brings change, and those camp meetings are now a memory, but the work of the Lord continues and grows. We are a multi-cultural, family-friendly Christian community, serving God's people and committed to a spirituality of hope, justice, and healing.
