Our History

The St. Peter’s Pikeland Church was originally a German Reformed congregation, begun in 1812. They shared a church building with the local Lutheran congregation. In 1835, that church burned down, and the current church was built the same year. A new Lutheran church was built up the hill in 1843.

In 1957, we joined the new United Church of Christ denomination, made up primarily of the Congregational churches of New England and the German Reformed churches of Pennsylvania.
