175th Anniversary Celebration of Setauket UMC

The congregation of Setauket United Methodist Church will celebrate its 175th Anniversary on Sunday, October 14th at 10:00 AM. The special service will feature the sharing of memories, guest speakers, luncheon, and special music by the Jazz Band from The Jazz Loft. Guest speakers will include Long Island East District Superintendent Rev. Julia Yeon-Hee Yim, former pastor Lynda Bates-Stepe, and a representative from the Town of Brookhaven.

Setauket Methodist Church began gathering in the old Setauket schoolhouse not far from the present church at the crossroads of Rt. 25A and the Main Street in 1835. Following a revival held in Port Jefferson in 1843, the hearts of five men were warmed to the point that they organized the Methodist Society of Setauket.

The fledgling congregation purchased what was known as the Baptist Meeting House as their first spiritual home. In 1869 they began digging the foundation of the new and current church. The original church was modest and much of the construction was done by its members, who were employed in the local shipbuilding industry. Setauket Methodist Church has been the “Light on the Hill” for nearly 150 years, and with the blessings of God, will continue to shine and welcome all who pass through Setauket.

The church is located at 160 Main St. East Setauket. Sunday service starts at 10:00 AM along with Sunday School. Rev. Steven Kim has been serving the congregation since 2016. (Phone: 631-941-4167, Email:, Website:
