Monticello United Methodist Church celebrated it's 150th anniversary in September 2015.

The Church Buildings TODAY

This building has become our prayer chapel and church offices.  Next to it stands a modern sanctuary with updated technology, a large recently renovated fellowship hall, and a large Christian children's center.
