The History of Religion and Churches in the Littlestown Area:

Religion has played a vital role in the history of most communities.

Littlestown’s Christ Church (Evangelical and Reform) was created by German settlers thirty years before the Revolutionary War.

Churches were built in increasing tempo and, long before the Borough was founded, churches were scattered throughout the vicinity. During its 238 years Littlestown has enjoyed an enviable reputation as a Christian community.

In 1791, the first Catholic congregation converted a dwelling into a church. Some other early churches include Redeemer’s, Centenary Methodist, St. Paul’s Lutheran, St. John’s Lutheran, and the United Brethren Church.
