The City Methodist Church, latterly known as City United Methodist Church is an abandoned church in Gary, Indiana. Once the largest Methodist church in the Midwest, it ceased as a place of worship in 1975 after a relatively brief life of just over 50 years.
The church has been used many times as a film location, including for Nightmare on Elm Street, Transformers: Dark of the Moon and parts of Pearl Harbor. The series Life After People included the church in its exploration of Gary from Season 1, Episode 2
