1970 - Locally Second United Methodist Church & Christ United Methodist church merged to be known as Christ United Methodist Church. 1st joint service was held on June 21st at our current location.2001 - Sadly our sister church in Glendon closed its doors, and because of this unfortunate event, we have been blessed with new members from Glendon.

Presently we com together & worship at the building on the corner of Seitz & Berwick Streets in Easton. This church has gone through many changes & mergers to become the church we are today. Throughout our metamorphosis, one thing remains the same. We come together in fellowship to worship our Lord Jesus Christ.
