This church was formally organized on May 23, 1926, as the Community Congregational Church of Scottsbluff, Nebraska, and the congregation purchased the old Presbyterian Church building which had been erected in 1901 at 1st and 16th Streets. The church was recognized by and received into the Northwestern Association of Congregational Churches in Nebraska on June 14, 1926. The first pastor, the Rev. P.J. Thiel, assumed his duties in November 1926. The congregation built a new church building which was dedicated on November 22, 1959. In 1961 it joined the United Church of Christ, a union of Congregational Churches with the Evangelical and Reformed Church.
