The churches of the Wapwallopen Ministerium and the Old River Church Cemetery Association hold services at the Old River Church on Rte 239 in Wapwallopen (just north of Heller’s Orchards) each Sunday during August at 6:00 pm for evening worship with refreshments afterward.
The remaining summer services will be hosted by:
August 16 –St. Peter’s UCC August 23 –Mt. Zion UCC August 30 –Cemetery Association Erected in 1833 and restored in 1954 by the Wapwallopen Historical Society, the church sits in a beautiful location on a wooded hillside.
Its simple façade contrasts with the remarkable innovations of the day inside. The height of the building is not just for show, but allows for two stories of pews on three walls.
On the fourth wall, the pulpit is raised approximately 10 feet on a “wineglass” pedestal to make it easier for the minister to preach to the congregation seated in both stories.
