Church History

Little is known of the beginning of the church before a Mr. Fisher donated land in 1881 to build a Congregational church. That building was sold to the Methodist society in 1885. The Campus Methodist Episcopal congregation worshiped in that church until 1906 when the church closed for lack of financial support. The church had been part of the Bonfield and Reddick Circuits.

In 1911 two women began a Sunday school in that building. In 1917, the Central Illinois Conference appointed a preacher for Campus, making it a two-point charge with Reddick. This charge continued until 1933. The women of the church had a Ladies Aid. In 1963 the church closed and the building was sold to an individual and remodeled into a private home.
