Tulpehocken UCC, believes in salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ. Located in Richland, Pennsylvania, we are a United Church of Christ in the rural area between Reading and Lebanon. Our neighbors include family farms, produce stands, a trout hatchery, and lots of friendly people.
We affirm the creeds passed down to us from those in the faith who came before us.
Celebrating a Proud Heritage
Although we are proud of our heritage, we are also optimistic about our future. We are a welcoming church committed to spreading the word and love of God to the local community and to the world.
The congregation was established in 1727 and with the help of Caspar Wistar accumulated the land to get started. The Wistar family receives one red rose every year for the recognition of the help. This ceremony occurs on the second Sunday of June at the church, during the worship service and is followed by a meal of fellowship.
Join Us for Worship, Fellowship & Christian Education
While we are proud of our beautiful building, we are aware that the true church of Jesus Christ is the people of Tulpehocken UCC, and we try to live our lives, as a group and as individuals, accordingly.
We are a member of the United Church of Christ, featuring uplifting services, Christian education, and fellowship. We are not judgmental or dogmatic here; this is a place for everyone. Our blended worship connects people from all walks of life and no matter who you are or where you are on life's journey, you are welcome.

blended worship and our Christian education classes.
