Founded in 1888
In January 1888, a special meeting was called to consider establishing a Union Church. Forty residents had signed the call. A committee was appointed to study the feasibility of such a church organization. The D. L. and W. Railroad offered its new station on Ridgewood Ave for holding Sunday services.

Our original membership was a blend of Methodists, Episcopalians, Dutch Reformists, Presbyterians and one Congregationalist. It would seem amazing, then, that we became a Congregational Church. The charter members recognized the need to blend ideas and ways of worship. The church was to be based on tolerance of others and the willingness to make concessions.

As a result, we became a church that provides a spiritual home for all Christians to find rest, comfort and strength while respecting others' beliefs. A truly United Church in an active, small town with a true community spirit, very similar to the original apostolic churches that were "parish churches" based on the friendliness of neighbors, drawn closer together in charity and a common faith in Jesus Christ.
