Welcome to Hickory Street United Presbyterian Church



Thank you for visiting our website, we encourage you to come back and visit as we are working diligently to improve our online presence.


Hickory Street Presbyterian Church was founded on January 28, 1856 as the German Presbyterian Church. In 1931 the name was changed to Hickory Street Presbyterian, and in the early 1960s it was given its third name, Hickory Street United Presbyterian Church.  Eleven men have served as pastors, four of whom (Nordt, Hahn, Maurer, and Collins) served for a combined 104 years. It is a church of long pastorates, the longest being held by our current pastor. The last German sermon was preached by the Reverend Dr. Theodore Hahn in 1941, and only one pastor, Tom Collins, has been of non-Germanic heritage.

A Lenten Message


"Even now," declares the LORD, "return to me with all your heart, with fasting and weeping and mourning."  Rend your heart and not your garments. Return to the LORD your God, for he is gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and abounding in love, and he relents from sending calamity.  Who knows? He may turn and have pity and leave behind a blessing-- grain offerings and drink offerings for the LORD your God. - Joel 2:12-14
