Quote of the Day
Isaiah 32:2

And a man shall be as an hiding place from the wind, and a covert from the tempest; as rivers of water in a dry place, as the shadow of a great rock in a weary land.

Forks United Church of Christ History

Among the Germans who emigrated in the 1730s and 1740s was a man named Stocker, for whom the neighboring town is named. Stocker's farm, the original place church congregants worshiped, still stands today on the south side of the Memorial House next to the church.

The first church in 1812 was constructed for $2,684. In the 1850s, the interior was remodeled. On one Sunday of each month, services were held in the German language since many congregants were German settlers.

Over the years, several renovations have modernized the building. In 1912, the church underwent an extensive remodel and was redone to its present state today. Renovations included lowering the ceiling, adding on a Sunday school, constructing an organ, and installing radiators. In the 1950s, bathrooms, a kitchen, and more Sunday school classrooms were added. By 1981, the church renovated its sanctuary, holding a service of dedication that March.

During the anniversary year, many events took place to mark the Bicentennial Anniversary. Our Historical Records are maintained and kept track of by Jacob E. Allen, Amy Knitter & Lois Steward. Most of our older records are kept at The Evangelical & Reformed Historical Society in Lancaster.

Forks UCC’s congregation celebrated the church’s 200th anniversary in 2012- and we’re looking forward to many more years to come!

The power of Christian prayer Open our ears to hear
Blessed Lord, open our ears to hear what Thou speakest and our eyes to see as Thou seest. Give us hearts to beat in sympathy with Thine at the sight of every little child; and above all, our Lord, to understand and experience how surely and how blessedly Thou fulfilest Thy promise, "Whoso shall receive one such little child in my name receiveth me."
