On February 19th, ten laborers gathered to form an official meeting place for a congregation pastored by Rev. J. Beecher. The first church was in a large room that had seats around the wall. The choir used these while the members often used cord wood for seats. When they had evening services each family brought a lamp to light the room.


The Great Fire of '81 consumed countless buildings and farmland. Our church was destroyed. After this happened, a Presbyterian society was left and members gathered in a variety of homes.


A Presbyterian church was organized in Bad Axe with 26
members. Elders were chosen from each township: Sheridan, Colfax, Verona and Paris. This was the first Presbyterian church built in Bad Axe standing with a simple frame structure just 30x40 feet.


A larger church was built for our growing congregation. There were now 130 members and 180 people attending Sunday School. The new building could hold up to 500 people. 


The present building was built and dedicated.


We decided to join the Presbyterian Church in America denomination. 


After 3 buildings and over 20 pastors, we are excited to welcome this new chapter with new leadership. Pastor Scott McDermand and his wife Vicki moved to the area toward the end of 2018.


Our vision is to bring the people of Huron County into the reformed faith through the word, sacrament and prayer.
