Additional Info About Our Church
The phrase, many streams, one church, has been used to describe the United Church of Christ and can be used to describe our own congregation.
In 1934 the Evangelical Church and the Reformed Church merged to form the Evangelical and Reformed Church. The 1929 merger of the Christian Church and the Congregational Church formed the Christian Congregational Church. Finally, in 1957 the merger of these two Churches formed the United Church of Christ. So, the streams of four church bodies flowed together to form one larger, stronger church.
While each of these churches was unique in worship and governing style, their common faith commitment made it possible for them to unite as one.
Peace United Church of Christ was formed in 1969 by the merger of the Muddy Creek United Church of Christ, Swartzville, East Cocalico Township, and Saint Paul's United Church of Christ, Adamstown. The church building was constructed on property donated to the Muddy Creek Church by John B. Harting, where for so many years the Muddy Creek Sunday School Picnic was hosted.
While Peace United Church of Christ itself is only 40 years old, we are celebrating 278 years of worship and service to our local communities and the world.
While it is good to look back and celebrate our history and heritage, we must always look to the needs of our present day and to the future as together we strive to serve God, and all of God's people!
We invite you to explore this website in order to learn more about who we are and what we believe. And we extend to you an invitation to worship with us and celebrate God's grace and mercy as we continue the journey of faith that God has set before us.
