W.J. Houck at 9 E. South Street.  The congregation erected a building on West South Street in 1894, which was used until moving in 1921 into the Sunday School auditorium erect at West and Pomfret streets.  The sanctuary was completed in 1930, and a large Christian Education facility was added in 1967.  In 2012 Grace united with the Allison (former Methodist) and First (former Evangelical) congregations to form the Carlisle United Methodist Church and erect a new building on Spring Garden Street.

Historic Conference:
     Pennsylvania Conference of the United Brethren Church

Journal references:
     1892,39 – resolved to sustain this “valuable church property”
     1894,26 – church taken down and material taken to erect church building in Carlisle
              30 – retroactively approve sale of property to J. Carson Whistler

Brief History:
     Some say the building pictured above was a Reformed Church, which was converted into a double house when the congregation disbanded – but the building sits exactly where the 1872 atlas places the United Brethren Church.  Whether or not that was the actual UB building depends upon how much of the building materials were transported to Carlisle.  At any rate, prominent citizen J. Carson Whistler purchased the UB property, and he is known to have lived in the east side of the above building.
     Holdcraft’s 1939 History of the Pennsylvania Conference, page 191, states: “At one time we had a splendid church in Newville.  It was built in 1868 and was abandoned in the early nineties.  The seats were installed in the West Hill Church and the materials and financial proceeds were used to establish our church in Carlisle.”

 Final disposition:
     The property was sold and the church converted into a double house.

     1923,20 – church building dedicated

Brief History:
    
This historical congregation traces its beginning to 1810, when Christian Erb, father of future bishop Jacob Erb, moved his family from Lancaster County to Wormleysburg.  The Erb home became a regular preaching place and even hosted some annual conferences.  The congregation also worshiped at times in a brick building controlled by the Methodists and, until 1860, in a wooden school house on the southwest corner of Second and Locusts streets.  They then worshiped in a brick school house until dedicating their own church building December 17, 1871.  The present building was dedicated March 11, 1923.  A new sanctuary was added to the rear in 1961, and the old sanctuary remodeled for Sunday School.  The 1871 building, the 1923 building and at least one former parsonage were all located on various portions of the property occupied by the present complex.
     In the face of declining membership and attendance, the congregation voted on July 15, 2012, to close.  The final service and transfer of the building took place August 5, 2012.

Final disposition:
     The property was “transitioned” to Cornerstone Church of the Assembly of God denomination, which had been using part of the building for its services.
