1812 to J8")7 us a preaching point, and tho
congregation, without church organiza
tion, was served by l!evs. 1"). S. Tobias,
II. Vuuk and W. Goodrich. On the
17th of February, 18.i7, the ion church
was dedicated, and on the following Sat
urday tho Zion congregation was organ
izud with thirty members. These were
principally from Oraugdville and the St.
James congregation. Hcv. Goodrich, in
whoso time tho Zion church was built,
continued to servo this congregation till
18G5. During his pastorate of this con
gregation he baptized a" and confirmed
;!0. During his brief pastorate, of less
than two years, Kov. E. I?. Wilson bap
tized 4 and confirmed i); and lov. A.
lloutz to present time baptized 21 and
confirmed !10. This congregation in the
way of baptism? and confirmations, has
made equal progress with tho other con
gregations of the charge, but it has sus
tained moro losses by deatli than they.
Death has laid its relentless grasp upon
n number of its members and depleted
its ranks. This congregation, however,
has not been retrograding, but has been
making progress slowly. The attend

surrounded by considerable counter influ
ence which seems to retard its progress
somewhat. There has not been enough

Their energies are scattered and feeble;
without :i church name and without a

if thoy yould identify themselves with a

concentration ot church life and energy
in this congregation. A free and unre

faith, and a bold advocacy of and adhe

in a certain sense, tho founder of the

considerable progress in tho number of
its attendants, but number is not the
highest end. .Its main object should be

Tho planting of shade trees was woe

time, the church would now bemirround

Tlio first regular Reformed servicowas
held in tho old I'nion log church, locat
ed at tho MoIIeniy graveyard, two or
threo miles west of Ora.igeville, This
church wns jointly owned by tho Luth
erans and Reformed. It hud a gallon
on threo sides, and an old-fashioned pnl
pit. Rov. Jacob DeifTonbaeh preached
hero during his ministry in this county,
(1815-1821.) It is (ititto probable that
each denomination worshipping hero
inning iiui period, urn nut. nave service
more than oueo in a month. Key. I.a
rose beoamo Rev. J. Deiffcnbueh's suo
censor and served this congregation a few
years. Tradition says ho was a fine
speaker, very gentlemanly in his appear
nnco nnd had a very agreeable and at
tractive wife. Death soon ended his
useful career and for years his remains
liavo been pcacctully slumbering in the
old graveyard at Illoomsburg. His con
genial companion soon followed him to
tho spirit world. As co-workers in tho
earthly vineyard of their blessed Master,
they now cense from their labors mid
have possessed their heavenly inheri
tance. About tho year 1828 or 2!) tho congre
gation moved their place of worship ton
building in Orangevillo, This house was
looaled wheio tho flue residence of Col.
II, R. Kline now utaiids on Mill street,
and is snid to have been built for th
double purpose of day school and wor
- ship. IIero they continued to worship
till about the year 1810 when they moved
to the Union church, their present place
The Rev. Isaac Shelhiinuner became
the immediate successor of Rov. Laroso
ut tlio old Union log church and contin
ued to serve the Reformed Interest hero
till it moved to Oraugeville. His survi
vors tell us thnt he traveled ou foot to
his various appointments; that he was
humble in spirit mid faithful in the per
formance of duty. Ills piety wns great
er than his education it is true, but nev
ertheless ho'wasa truo spiritual shepherd
and his paternal spirit secured tor him
the well merited titlo of Father Shel-
In tho vear 1829 Rev. Daniel S. Tobi
as became pastor of this congregation,
now located in the town, and continued
to serve It till 18."1, In tho meantime
a growing want for .Knglih service ne
cessitated the employment of a pastor in
this language. Accordingly in the year
1811, tho Kov. Henry Juink became the
eolleaguoof I lev. D.S.Tobias, the foi lit
er serving in the English nnd the latter
in tho German. This double arrange
ment continued till the closo of Rev.
robins' pastorate of this congregation,
when the transition irom tho German
languago to tho English language wns
completed. Rov. hunk remained the
sole pastor during tho following three
years and then declining health necessi
tated his resignation.
His successors in regular order wero
Revs. W. Goodrich, 12, 13." Wilson and
A. lloutz. This congregation at one
lime was tho largest in tho neighbor
hood, but by removals and deaths its
ranks have become very much depleted. .
Within the lust ten years however, its
membership has been doubled. Since
18 10 it has been worshipping together
with the Presbyterian and the Lutheran
congregations in the Union church. Du
ring ail this time, with very rare excep
tions, thero has been maintained a spirit
of unity and fellowship between theso
congregations. Being of one faith, ono
baptism, and ot one Lord, they all gen
erally attend when there is divine service,
and especially when tho Lord's Sup
per is administered. In this church has
often been felt iiy many a devout wor
shipper the sentiment of that beautiful
and traiernai hymn:
"Blest bo tho tie that binds
Our hearts in Christian love;
Tho fellowship of kindred minds
Is liko to that above."
Here, too, the experience of the wor
shipper has given renewed sanction to
tho doctrine of the communion of saints.
To worship hero is a sacred privilege and
pleasure. Hallowed by the sacred asso
ciations of forty years, tho old Union
church will soon undergo repairs which
will beautify the temple ot our dear de
parted ancestors and do honor to their
Him. uv kui'okmhh conoiieoatiox.
Previous to 1838 tho Presbyterian
brethren worshipped in a log church lo
cated where the present Union church
now stands. Tho Reformed at that
time had no organization there, but wor
shipped at the upper Briarcrcek church.
Tho old log church becoming dilapidat
ed, it became necessary to build a new
one. The Presbyterian brethrenmade
overtures to the Lutherans and Reform
ed in he neighborhood to unite with
them in building a new Union church.
The agreement was entered into and the
present Union church was built in 1838
and rebuilt in 1872.
With tho building of this church began
the organization of the Ridley Reformed
congregation. It was organized mostly
of members from the upper Hriarcreek
congregation. This congregation was
served by tho following pastors: Revs.
Isaac Stiely, Henry Hoffman, John W.
Lesehcr, A. R. llottenstein and A.
lloutz. From tho time of its organiza
tion till 1871, this congregation belonged
to the North Susquehanna charge. At
the annual meeting of classis held at
Sliainokiu in 1871, it was transferred to
tho Orangevillo charge.
The members of this congregation are
generally well-to-do fanners. The com
munity is known as tasty in dress and
somewhat worldly in their pursuits.
And while the latter is still quite piomi
nent, wo are happy to say the people
are inclined to be bomcwhat more spirit
ually minded, nnd more liberal in their
contributions to benevolent objects.
That this congregation is behind the
others in some particulars cannot bo de
nied, but its former associations have
done much to shape its character. It
was at ono time under the control of a
minister who belonged to the Independ
cut Synod. This spirit is occasionally
seen yet, but is fast dying out. It once
belonged ton charge havingeight or ten
congregations, and was not accustomed
to do much for tho pastor. And it has
just made the transition from tho Ger
man to the English language. Brother
Ilottenstinc was the last pastor who
preached in the German languago and
A. lloutz tlio first regular English pas
tor. Within the last few years, the Rid
ley church and graveyard have been
greatly improved, which has awakened
a church pnue m the people, llio taab
bath school is well patronized and ably
conducted. Tho relation of the three
denominations is harmonious and peace
ful. The prospect of the Reformed con
gregation here is good. It has taken a
higher stand in tho sphere of morals mid
christian obligation. The atmosphere,
however, effects not only tho barometer
in this place but wo are sorry to say al
so the attendance upon divine woiship,
but not so much so much so the attend
anco at tho Fair or election, A more
regular nnd better attendance, especially
in tho afternoon, would be abetter man
ifestation of the christian life and zeal.
Thu singing -in this church is not to
good as it might be. As each denomi
nation is too weak to have a good choir
of its own, and as thero is ample materi
al in tho three denominations to form a
good choir, why not organize a union
choir like that at Oraugeville? Wake up
brethren and move in the line of pro
gress. A. II.
