Faith Evangelical and Reformed church was founded in 1951 to provide religious education to the children of the General Protestant Orphan Home, later known as Beech Acres Orphanage.
The congregation of Faith Church worshipped for the first time in 1951 in the auditorium of the orphanage administration building and continued to hold services there until the original church building was built in 1954. That original space, now our sanctuary, served as worship space, educational building, and fellowship hall in the early years. Later, as the congregation grew, a new Fellowship Hall, kitchen, and Sunday school rooms were added.
In 1957 the Evangelical and Reformed Church merged with the Congregational Christian Church to become a new denomination - The United Church of Christ. While this brought about a change in the church's name, Faith United Church of Christ continued to grow its ministry in the local and wider community. Though Beech Acres is no longer an orphanage and the church no longer has institutional ties there, the legacy of welcoming children and others seeking a church home continues.
