Getting to Know Us

For over 150 years the faithful have gathered to worship and serve as a caring body of Christ in our beautiful, historic church in Sumneytown. Friedens UCC is blessed with spiritual guidance from our pastor and with lay leaders who generously share their talents to meet the needs and challenges of our faith community.

Fellowship, food, and mission are integral to our church life. Fellowship is nurtured in Breakfast Bunch gatherings, Wendy’s Nights to earn funds for mission work, and at Mission Café, an after worship luncheon to share current mission efforts. Friedens’ famous cooks sponsor a Dessert Auction, Turkey Supper, and Christmas cookies, Easter candy, Fastnächts, corn pies, and apple dumpling sales. These events promote fellowship within our community, while raising needed funds for church expenses.

Adult and youth volunteers have stretched the hands and hearts of Friedens beyond our doors with mission trips to Haiti, Mississippi, Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota, SERRV in Maryland, and locally at Trinity UCC’s soup kitchen in Pottstown. Within our congregation Christ’s love is shared through our Prayer Chain and a Cards and Calls Ministry that keeps us in touch and on call for support to ill and shut-in members.

We are proud of our Music Ministry. Under the direction of our talented organist, vocal, and bell choir directors, we enjoy an Adult Choir, Hallelujah Youth Choir, and intergenerational Bell Choir to enhance worship. Christian Education is fostered through Vacation Bible School, Sunday school classes for all ages, and Confirmation Class.

There are always ways to be engaged in faith’s good works at Friedens! Visit us on Facebook, our website at or in person for Sunday Worship at 10AM. We love visitors! A warm welcome is always guaranteed at our friendly church on the hill.
