Please join us on Tuesday, June 6, 2017 at 7PM in the auditorium of the Lutheran Theological Seminary for "276 years of Presbyterians in Adams County: The Controversies and Contentions, the Compassion and Commitment" presented by Charles Teague
The Gettysburg Presbyterian Church has just celebrated its 275th anniversary. Chuck had the privilege of being on that committee, writing up the history, and chairing the initiative to establish Heritage Hall at the Gettysburg Presbyterian Church. Through his work on the anniversary committee he was astounded by the storyline, initiated prior to 1740 and including some of the most famous of local personages: Hance Hamilton (first sheriff of York County), James Gettys, Alexander Dobbin, Thaddeus Stevens, Edward McPherson, David McConaughey, David Wills, Eddie Plank, Ike & Mamie Eisenhower, and many more. In some respects, the church history is a microcosm of Adams County history. The earliest members faced opposition from Marylanders, Indians, and the Penn family. High points and low points occurred throughout the three centuries.
