The German Reformed Congregation met in the first church, constructed of logs, near the present site.
The land on which the present church stands was granted to the Union Church (German Lutheran and German Reformed), now the United Church of Christ (UCC), for 5 shillings by Thomas Penn, son of William Penn, during the reign of King George III.
A larger building was erected near the old cemetery.
The brick church with a gallery was built.
West Manheim Charge was formed which consisted of St. Bartholomew's and St. David's.
Bethel and St. Paul's (Dubs) Church were added to the West Manheim Charge. One minister served 4 congregations, with 2 churches having worship on alternate Sundays. St. David's was a Union congregation and a Reformed service was held one Sunday and a Lutheran service on the alternate Sunday.
Present edifice was erected and an education wing was added to the present structure in 1951.
The Union association with the Lutheran Congregation was dissolved.
The Marburg Charge was formed with Bethel UCC.
