About Us

Wherever you are on your journey…we’ll meet you there.

We seek to welcome and embrace every person where they are, just as they are, on their faith journey.  

 

We believe we are called to be followers of Jesus, who embraces all people, wherever they are on their journey. Though sometimes we stumble, we seek to follow Jesus’ path and embody Jesus’ welcome, love, and acceptance of all.

 

No matter your age, socioeconomic status, gender, race, sexual orientation, family circumstance, or certainty of faith, you are welcome here. Because every person is a valued, loved child of God.

 

We invite you to find and know your home in God.  Join us in worship on Sunday mornings.

Check out our opportunities to learn, grow, and serve in faith.

    History

    David Hudson came west in 1799 to inspect and survey the land he and some associates purchased from the Connecticut Land Company - present day Hudson Township. He and his associates returned the following year, 1800, with their families to begin the arduous task of clearing the land, building homes - and a church! Our first services began shortly after their arrival here on June 5, 1800; and we were chartered on September 4, 1802. We were part of David Hudson’s larger dream, which included both a church and a college for the training of congregational ministers. The Western Reserve College, started in 1826, is now part of Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland. The Western Reserve Academy (just across the street to the east and north from the church) now uses the college campus.


    Our first building was a log cabin; in 1820 the church constructed a building on the spot where City Hall now stands. The original sanctuary at our current site was built in 1865; the three story addition to the rear of the sanctuary, Ellsworth wing, was added in 1924. The two story educational Walbridge wing, built in 1959, was replaced by the new west wing called the Bicentennial Building, constructed in 2000. March 2015 marked the 150-year anniversary of the sanctuary, which went through a complete renovation in the summer of 2014. The chancel area was expanded, electrical wiring and fixtures all updated, painting completed throughout and trim work added to the beautiful windows. Read more about our extensive history here
