Brief History

The Evangelical United Methodist Church is an historic congregation serving the lord and the greater New Holland area since 1858. our church began as a congregation in the united Brethren tradition which merged in 1946 with the Evangelical Church to form the Evangelical United Brethren Church. In 1968 the Evangelical United Brethren Church merged with the Methodist Church to form the denomination knows as the United Methodist Church.

In 1868, the first sanctuary was built at the intersection of Diller Avenue and West Main Street. In 1900 the church edifice was enlarged and then further enlarged in 1922 as the church and community grew. In 1957 as the church family to continued to grow, the education wing of the church campus was built.

In 2001, multiple updates and renovations were made to allow the church to be better prepared to serve our Lord for ministry and mission in the 21st century. An elevator was added to make our facility handicap accessible. Air conditioning and an upgraded heating system were added. New ceilings, wiring and lighting, doors, painting, carpeting and a modern updated kitchen finished the project.
