History

Believing in God’s Word and Spirit

This site has been in continuous use as a place of worship since 1707, first by the Quakers and since 1832 by the Methodists. The original wooden church building was moved to the location of the old parsonage, next door, where it remained in use until it burned down in 1876. The cornerstone of the new brick church as laid in 1870 where the present church stands. In 1951, the building served as an emergency center when a Pennsylvania Railroad train derailed one block east, killing 86 people. Sadly in 1954 the brick church was destroyed by a fire. The large stained glass window at the back of the sanctuary survived and is one of the few parts of the original church that remains. Two years later, almost to the day, the first services were held in the present structure.
