Our History

Zion Methodist Church of Freysville has a spiritual heritage dating back to 1808. First established as a preaching place under the old Evangelical Association, Zion’s first pastor was Jacob Frey. He was appointed by Jacob Albright, the founder and spiritual father of the Evangelical Association. Services were first held in area homes and barns. The church is the “Mother” church of all Evangelicals in York County, having been the first church formed.

The present church building was built in 1896. Various renovation projects have taken place and the addition of class rooms, restrooms, and a furnace room to the rear of the present building took place in 1978.

After several mergers, the name changed to Zion United Methodist. Today this beautiful church is known as Freysville Community Zion United Methodist Church and welcomes all.
