Welcome to the

Waconda Lake Area Churches!

Cawker City and Glen Elder are communities in North Central Kansas that are situated on Waconda Lake. The Cawker City and Glen Elder United Methodist Churches have had a long, storied history in their respective communities. They have both been a part of their communities for over 140 years, and continue to be vital congregations in their own, unique way. These churches have been yoked together since the early 1960’s and although they each have their own unique traits, they are still able to work together to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.
