Our History

The earliest record of the congregation of the church of Christ at Norval Park is from 1919, when a group of brethren purchased a lot on the south side of Arch St. August 15, 1920 the building was complete and dedicated. The costs were kept low due to the generosity of the members money, time and talents. Construction of a new building at the 845 Arch St. site began in April of 1956. All skills needed for the construction were present among the members, mason, carpenter, plumber and electrician. The job was supervised by Harold Williams and his brother Richard Williams. Again because of the time and talent of the members costs were low. The cost to build the new building was $60,000., it was appraised at $150,000. The first service at the new building was held, Wednesday, February 22, 1958. In February of 1982 a dedication of an addition was held. Again most the work for this addition was completed by members, who spent many hours at the building using their talents to save the church money.
