Sayreville United Methodist Church
In 1869 the construction of the first ecclesiastical house of worship was completed. Industrialist Peter Fisher Sr., co-founder of the Sayre and Fisher Company brickworks, donated funds and bricks to build the structure that serves the Methodist community of Sayreville to this day. The cost was $6,600 for the 33 foot by 43 foot church.
This first church helped to shape Sayreville’s history and established a tradition of community service for other congregations that followed. Parishioners of the church participated in ecumenical and inter-faith activities including family camping trips, square dances and 4-H club events.
