    Methodist circuit riding ministers were conducting worship services in the Velasco area as early as the 1830s. After the original townsite was destroyed in the hurricane of 1875, a new one developed further inland. Led by the Rev. John L. Sullivan, Velasco Methodist church was formally organized in 1893. A brick sanctuary, erected in 1894, served the congregation until it was destroyed in the 1900 hurricane. A new sanctuary was completed in 1904. Rebuilding again after hurricane damage in 1932, the church has continued to serve the people of Brazoria County. (1988)
