History of our church

1898 until Present

On the last Sunday of June 1897, in the Live Oak School (when it was next to the present Grange Hall), a small nucleus of interested Christians joined in worship and to organize a church in Morgan Hill. Twenty-three members from fourteen families officially formed the church on January 22, 1898.

The first church building was on the southwest corner of Dunne Avenue and Church Street. By subscription and volunteer labor, the church was completed at a cost of $1200.

In 1898, the first church building was on the southwest corner of Dunne Ave and Church St across the street from the railroad tracks. 

Milton R. Beach was ordained in 1904 as MHPC's first elected elder.

In 1914 the church building was moved to what is now First Street to get away from the noise of the railroad.
With crowded conditions in 1957, plans were made to relocate to the present site on the corner of Dunne and DeWitt Avenues.

On June 27, 1965 the church held its first service on this comer lot which now has a sanctuary, office building, Christian Education building and multi-purpose fellowship hall.

In Spring 2011, construction of the new church offices and Family Life Center was completed. This new facility houses our youth group and other groups throughout the week.
