Welcoming ALL as God's Family

Friedens UCC is a small congregation of about 300 members and is family-oriented with a profound love of Christ. Within the physical walls of the church you will be introduced to displays and artifacts that date back to 1834. Within the spirit of the community of faith you will be greeted with a warmth and energy that is expectantly looking and planning for the future.



We warmly welcome you to join us for worship each Sunday morning at 9:00am.

Children’s Church begins at 9:30 after the Children’s Sermon.

Christian Education is at 10:00. Pre-K through adult classes.



Upcoming Events

Every Child’s Hope Christmas Store-Nearly every child at ECH has the bittersweet wish for their families to be loving, happy and together for the holidays and beyond. For some children at ECH, that is not the case. Even though their resources are limited, the children still understand the joy of giving. They take distinct pride in selecting, buying and personally wrapping special presents for the people who mean the most to them. Each year Friedens collects items for the children to purchase for their families and friends. Click here to see the list.
