About Us

      Around 1833 families from Virginia settled in the S.W. part of Trivoli Township. By 1840, enough of these Presbyterian faith families had come that a missionary with The School of Presbyterian Church came to organize a congregation. On Sept. 19, 1840, the first gathering of that congregation met at the house of Robert Ramsey. On November 23, 1844, the cornerstone of their new church was laid by Rev. George L. Still. This and the adjacent cemetery property was donated by Henry Fahnestock who also helped build the new church. It was decided the church would be called Brunswick Presbyterian Church due to a post office installed near by with the name Brunswick.

 

      Later, the membership had either moved or passed on and the doors of the church closed for over 25 years. On Sunday April 26, 1942, the doors were open again by Lester Lee and family, and Gene Yorton and wife. Brother Lee would preach one Sunday and Brother Yorton the next. In the summer of 1942 Vacation Bible School was started and well attended by the children of the neighborhood. On Nov. 61949 the church was organized into an independent church and called Brunswick Community Church, as it is today.

 

Brunswick Community Church has:

  • Sunday morning and evening services
