Community Church of Hoboken: History

The Community Church was born out of the merger of several older churches over twenty-five years ago. The oldest is the Dutch Reformed Church of Hoboken, which dates from 1822. The First Methodist Episcopal Church was founded in 1846. The German Evangelical Church was organized in 1856. Eventually all these churches came together, and made the German sanctuary its home. Our wonderful stained glass windows came from the Mayer Studio of Munich, Germany. We are currently in a long-term project of renovating and restoring our building.
