Open Hearts. Open Minds. Open Doors.
Although the present church was not built until 1901, the congregation has been meeting since 1896, when Mr. Seebring was recorded as the group's first minister.
The congregation was originally known as the Methodist Episcopal Church at Hogan (Kniman's former name), and it was the Methodist Episcopal Church at Kniman until 1968, when the denomination consolidated with the United Brethren. The churches first trustees were elected on August 24, 1897 and they were William Handley, H. O. Hoshawe, Alonzo Payer, Otto Kennedy, George F. Meyers and Frederick Meiser. The fellowship hall was built in 1989 and was connected to the church in 1993.
During 2018, the church got a face lift with a new siding and a metal roof.
In 2019, the Ruth and Gloria Hanewich Memorial Pavillion was added, providing a place for outdoor services and community activities. In addition, the sign was upgraded and now lights.
In 2020, during the Covid pandemic the church sanctuary was expanded to provide additional seating and the doors entering the fellowship hall were updated.
