Following a churchwide spaghetti supper January 27, 1957, the adults met in the sanctuary to discuss the next step. An offer had been made to sell a large piece of land at a good price, but the land was out by the Gulf Freeway. Many members thought it would be better to build a new church in the area where Clear Creek High School was constructed. After all, the town was to grow in that direction, they reasoned.

The sanctuary wasn't completed until 1976 and looked different from the original concept drawn here.
Pat Smith described League City and the Methodist Church as the new decade opened in a letter written for the centennial history:
"In the 1950s, League City was still a very small town and the social life centered on the churches of the community. Few women worked outside the home, so the Women's Society of Christian Service and the individual circles were an important part of women's lives providing Bible study, mission outreach, and social outings."

On September 16, 1956, a committee was organized for the purpose of investigating the possibility of the need for a new Church location for League City Methodist Church
