Our church was founded as the Warren Congregational Church on October 3, 1863. Services were first held at various locations because the church owned no property and had no building. In 1884, the congregation purchased the old Hudson Congregational Church building. The men of the church held a “hauling bee,” and drove teams and wagons approximately 10 miles over the unpaved roads, and brought the church (dismantled) and its furnishings to Roberts, where it was erected on the corner of Warren and Vine Streets. In 1886, the name was officially changed from the Warren Congregational Church to the Congregational Church of Roberts. Building additions and remodeling projects were done over the years to accommodate the growing congregation.
Members of this church voted to affiliate with the United Church of Christ in 1961, and our official name was changed to Roberts Congregational United Church of Christ.
After many years of discussion and deliberation, the congregation voted to purchase land and build a new facility, and our present building was dedicated in 2008.
We are a Christ-centered, Bible-inspired, faithful body of believers who believe if you accept Christ, you accept everyone else too. No matter who you are or where you are on life’s journey, you are welcome here.
