The Springboro United Church of Christ History

churches in springboroIn early 1802, founding pastor Rev. Jacob Christman, an ordained minister of the German Reformed Church arrived from Rowan County, NC in what was then the Clearcreek Settlement.

According to an 1977, church history compiled by David Miller, Christman baptized George King on February 1, 1802, and preached his first sermon at the home of Augustine Preiz (Price) on February 4, thus beginning the first German Reformed Church in Ohio which later became the United Church of Christ, at Mill St & South Main St. (springborohistory.org)

The Springboro UCC is recognized as the oldest continuing congregation west of the Allegheny mountains, and we have taken pride in enduring the test of time with solid Christian values, faith and ministries. The church is still going strong – offering a more personal and spiritual journey than that offered by the mega churches of today. At the United Church of Christ, you are part of a “family” that knows and cares for you. Combined with our mission and beliefs, we feel that there truly is only one choice when it comes to church membership in the Springboro area.

We are proud of our youth ministries as well, with missionary work that has touched the lives of those around the world. With a variety of youth ministries to select from, the church youth use guidance offered from the word of God to help those in our local community and improve neighborhood problems. The United Church of Christ has youth groups for all ages, from 3-years old through high school seniors. Sunday school definitely is available, but our kids experience so much more with these youth group activities. The future of our church definitely looks bright.


So if you are interested in finding the right church for your family, please take some time to visit the Springboro United Church of Christ. We would love for you to attend one (or more) of our sermons and see for yourself why the UCC has been around for so long. You will find that Christian faith, fellowship and fun help our church stand out among all the recent additions in the area. Your can’t replace the real deal – and the Springboro United Church of Christ has proven to have the lasting values and beliefs to continue well into the future.
