HISTORICAL NOTE



The First Church of Christ was organized in Douglas, Otoe County, Nebraska, in 1888. For a number of years services were held in the Congregational Church. The first revival meeting was held in the summer of 1890, and for many years these meetings were held about every year in a large tent. In 1897 a building was purchased from the United Brethren Congregation and moved to land owned by the Church of Christ. In October of 1949 the name was changed to Christian Church. In the late 1970s this congregation was dissolved and the parsonage and church building were sold.
