Lineville First United Methodist Church
On May 9, 1913, fire swept through the nearby B.C. Bynum Mercantile, igniting the cross and destroying the church. However, the congregation persevered and laid the cornerstone for a new building that same month. Construction of the current building was completed in July 1914. The Family Life Building was constructed in 1979. Among the features of Lineville First United Methodist Church are the beautiful two-story stained-glass windows and the sanctuary in the "Akron design. Popular at the turn of the century, this plan includes a ceiling-retractable wall to separate or combine worship spaces. Many preachers and laity servants have been sent from this church to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The congregation rejoices in its heritage
