Our local history is rich with a pioneering and persevering spirit that spans over 100 years. Grace Hausler was among the first settlers in this area and began teaching Bible Classes to local San Diegueno Native People in 1909.  She was later Joined by her sister Elizabeth Bryan who hosted Bible Classes in her home. Eventually by 1922, as the town grew, they held Bible Classes in a local Pool Hall.  In 1948 the United Methodist Church began Sponsoring the Classes and One Room Church as a Missionary Church.  The one room church building was moved to it's present day location in 1954, and later annexed.  The original church building was destroyed by fire in February 1985. 

The Church was rebuilt and back in use by December of 1986 due to the efforts of former Pastor Edgar Smith, along with Trustees Irma Lee Wyly, Jim Woodward and Gene Norman.  A Dedication Ceremony officiated by UMC District Superintendent Faith Conklin was held in February 1987.  Our church has remained as a Vital Presence Ministry to the local community to this day.  Reverend Dan Meyer-Abbott has served as our Leader and Pastor for over 18 years continuously. 


The Covid-19 Pandemic of 2020 has forced us to suspend in-person assemblies, but we remain committed to serving the people of Jacumba, and beyond--bringing the love of Christ to all through all mediums like Facebook, and other electronic and virtual platforms. 


Following the lifting of Covid-19 restrictions we have once again welcomed our members and visitors back into our sanctuary and expanded our services even further to include clothing optional services at De Anza Springs Resort. We are a truly come as you are congregation.  Many of our members are also members at De Anza Springs Resort so we offer services to allow those members to worship there free of any clothing requirements or restrictions. Come and worship The Lord with us at either our regular services at the church, or at De Anza Springs Resort!

Most recently following the retirement of Pastor Dan Meyer-Abbott in June of 2022 we welcome Pastor Luis Garcia who brings new energy and inspiration to help us along our path.  Join us now, as we share the love of Christ. 


Jesus loves you just as you are, so do we.
