CHURCHES BETWEEN THE MOUNTAINS
A HISTORY OF THE
LUTHERAN CONGREGATIONS IN
PERRY COUNTY, PENNSYLVANIA
REV. D. H. FOCHT, A.M.
THE MILLERSTOWN CHARGE
Home | Up
FOR many years all the congregations between the Susquehanna and
Juniata Rivers constituted one charge,--a charge so large that no man could
serve with profit to the people or pleasure to himself. Seeing that it was
labor lost to travel so large a field, in August, 1860, Rev. Hackenberger
resigned Millerstown and the stations on the Juniata and confined his labors
afterwards to Liverpool and the congregations more contiguous thereto on the
Susquehanna. Thus a vacancy was made on the Juniata, which Synod supplied
by the appointment of a missionary on the 6th of July, 1861, when it may be said
that the Millerstown charge was properly constituted.
