FUMC began in 1836 with a group of several dozen Methodists meeting in a schoolhouse in Lockland. The congregation built their first church in 1843, known as Lockland Methodist Episcopal Church.
In 1874 the church moved to South Wayne Avenue. Over the next 60 years, the name of the church changed three times, finally settling with Wayne Avenue Methodist Church in 1941.
In the late 1950's, the church elders decided to move to Wyoming. The first worship services were held in a home on the site of the current church. The name was also changed to Friendship United Methodist.
Today, Friendship United Methodist church welcomes hundreds of members for services and programs throughout the week, and ministries and missions that reach far out into the community and world.
