HISTORICAL NOTE



The German Presbyterian Church of Hickman, Nebraska, was organized on August 27, 1878, with an initial membership of 35. Rev. John Berk was the first pastor. The following year, a frame church building was constructed in Hickman, to which an addition was made in 1889.



Physical improvements continued throughout the years, and the Hickman congregation observed their 40th anniversary on August 25, 1918. Successive anniversary observances were held throughout the years, culminating in the 75th anniversary celebration in 1953.



Beginning in 1948, a building fund was established for the construction of a new church building. This structure was subsequently constructed in 1960, and the first services were held in the new church in April of 1961. On August 27, 1961, on the occasion of the 83rd anniversary of the United Presbyterian Church of Hickman, the new building was formally dedicated.
