History

The first worship services were held in 1888 in the Campbell Town Hall. The original church building was dedicated in 1891, and its replacement in 1911. The first services on the present site were held in 1955 in the Fellowship Hall. Over the years an education building, Chapel and Sanctuary were added. The newest building is the AMY building (administration, music and youth). This church has a long history and a strong connection to the city and the west valley.

Connections
