About Our Name

 

 

Many people ask about our name: Science Hill – what does it mean?

 

   Back in 1833 when our church began, we believe the German-speaking immigrants along Beeson Street desired to name their new congregation “Zion’s Hill” (Zion in honor of Jerusalem.) However, the name that stuck was “Science Hill!” Science Hill became known as our local area, and even served as the name of the public school district.

   Science Hill Community Church has absolutely no connection with either Scientology or Christian Science.  For many years, we were affiliated with the United Church of Christ, but we voted to become an independent, non-denominational Christian congregation in 2006

Please see our statement of faith for a full description of our beliefs.
