We seek to be the Body of Christ in the world as we gather for worship, spend time learning about God's extravagant love for us, celebrate our life as a community through fellowship and reach out to the world. Our vibrant worship life fuels us for ministry to the world as we are involved in many community ministries. We take hospitality seriously and we would love to have you join us and experience our faith community for yourself!
Memorial United Methodist Church of Greenfield, Wisconsin is commemorating its 175th anniversary in 2015.
This congregation began when the Ohio Conference of the Evangelical Association sent a pastor named John Lutz on a missionary journey to Wisconsin. Because of his zeal, by year’s end the Greenfield Zion congregation was organized with 18 members. In 1844 the congregation erected a log building on the present site of Memorial Church. It was Wisconsin’s first Evangelical church.
That log building was replaced in 1858 with the cream city brick church now located by the cemetery, which in recent years served as the statewide museum of the United Methodist Church. It served the congregation for 71 years until 1929, when the present Memorial Church building was erected near the intersection of Morgan and Forest Home Avenues.
When the Evangelical United Brethren denomination merged with the Methodist Church in 1968, Memorial became known as Memorial United Methodist Church, and to this day is part of the Wisconsin Conference of the United Methodist Church.
Our current members live from Greenfield to Muskego, West Allis to Union Grove.
