Inscription.  
The congregation was organized May 4, 1747 by the Rev. Michael Schlatter who was sent by the Synods of Holland to Pennsylvania. On this site stood the first church, a log structure, which was replaced in 1798 by a brick church. This edifice enlarged and a second story added in 1877 became known as "old" Christ Church, renovated in 1896. It was used until April 7, 1963.
