Sageville United Methodist Church

 

The Sageville United Methodist Church is clearly one of the oldest churches in Lauderdale County. According to the message displayed on the portico, the church was established in 1850. Sageville has served the community southwest of the city of Meridian since that time. The Sageville Cemetery is located directly behind the church and is surrounded by a chain-link fence.

As noted above the church and cemetery are southwest of the city on US Highway 11 South. From the Meridian Airport (Key Field) proceed south on US 11 for 2.1 miles to Arundel Road. Turn right on Arundel Road for .7 miles to the intersection of Arundel Road and Askew Road. This is a "T" intersection. You must turn Right to remain on Arundel Road and continue on for .2 miles. The church and cemetery are located on the right side of Arundel Road. The address of the church building is 4712 Arundel Road, however, the church receives it's mail at 9114 Church Rd, Collinsville, MS 39325-0000. Sageville is a small church that has served the community for more than 150 years. The average attendance in 2010 was 32.
