Our Story

Formerly known as Spencerville Free Methodist Church, Crossway Christian Church, begun in the summer of 1899, the first Free Methodist tent meeting was held on Colesville Road at Clovely, Maryland. Rev. A.G. Miller, a Free Methodist missionary-evangelist was the speaker. The then, Spencerville Free Methodist church, was organize by Rev. A.G Miller in the fall of that year with sixteen charter members. Services were held in the Spencerville Hall until the fall of 1905. In the summer of 1905 work began on the original church on the ground next to the Spencerville Hall. The ground that the original church was built on was donated by Mr. Albert Sargent. 
A golden Anniversary celebration was observed in 1949 while Rev. L.H. Kelley was the pastor. Reve. Kelley had a home across the street from the first church. 

During the years of 1952-1954 the building was relocated back of the street and was extensively remodeled. The Rev. W.N Snider and the Rev. C.H. Barnett were pastors during this period. The Cornerstone was laid in October 1954 and is easily see at the front right side of the church. 

As the continued to grow, plans were made to enlarge the building. ground breaking took place on May 19, 1963 and construction began in August of that year. The present church was dedicated on October 11, 1964 under the pastor, Rev. Robert J. Magee, Sr. The parsonage was erected in April 1965. 

Our heritage is good, but our God has been the sustaining factor in our survival. it is His good pleasure to see His work go forward. Many have come to know Him because of the Spencerville Free Methodist Church.
