We are proud of our long history and of the people who have worked to create the foundations of our present beliefs and traditions. Historical Timeline

The church was founded in 1866 as the Rochester Universalist Church, and Reverend Silas Wakefield was called as our first minister. In that same year, the congregation dedicated a small church building on the current site of the Plummer Building in downtown Rochester. Through the years, we have built three other church buildings to serve a growing congregation.

Today, our members and friends continue to observe long-held traditions and to develop new ones for future generations.
