Our History

Our church has a rich history dating back to the days of this area’s first pioneers. Our founders settled here in the early 1800’s because of the area’s close proximity to the Chicago Road (formerly the Sauk Trail, now Michigan Avenue). In 1834, the congregation began meeting in homes, and by 1848 had raised $600 to build its first church building. In 1882, the present brick church was erected.
