For many years, contemporary worship services at Starkville FUMC were held in the Christian Life Center. Prior to becoming church property, the Connection building served as different local businesses, including a car dealership, a furniture store, and a clothing store. The location was purchased by the church in 2013, and Starkville FUMC members rallied together to renovate the building. Services at Connection began in 2014, and since then, the building has been used for church events, meals, Exam Slam, and even concerts!
