History of the Campbellstown Church

The church was organized April 4, 1899 with thirty-four charter members. They met in the schoolhouse located on the site of our present Township House. The church was erected the same year at a cost of $2,000.00. November 12 the new building was dedicated with about 600 people attending. It was first known as the Campbellstown Christian Church. In 1900 a pastor was hired to preach semi-monthly for $250.00

On November 12, 1917 a full time pastor was employed for $1,000 with parsonage furnished. In 1919 the parsonage was erected. The two-story Pamona Plan was a kit and ordered from Sears Robuck Co for nearly $3000.00.

Sunday School rooms and the enlargement of the basement took place at a cost of $4,139.15 in the year 1925.

In the year 1931 it became the Congregational Christian Church.

1934-1963 it was "yoked" with the Concord church sharing a pastor every other Sunday as well as providing the parsonage.
