Philippus United Church of Christ, Cincinnati

Philippus United Church of Christ, Cincinnati

Philippus United Church of Christ is located on the northwest corner of West Mcmicken and Ohio Avenues, in the Over-the-Rhine neighborhood, in Cincinnati. The church is a landmark because of a gilded hand, with its index finger pointing to the heavens, on its tall steeple. The church is an outgrowth of the now defunct St. Matthews German Evangelical Church at Elm and Liberty Streets, which was a stronghold of Free Protestantism.

Philippus Church is a red brick church completed in 1891. The church features Gothic Revival-style details. Recessed pointed-arch windows flank the gabled pointed-arch entrance and projecting tower with its rose window. For many years Phillippus Kirche ministered to Cincinnati's German immigrants and their families under the direction of the Rev. Dr. Pister. All services were conducted in German until 1921. Following the union of the Evangelical and Reformed Church in 1933, Philippus Kirche assumed the name Philippus Evangelical and Reformed Church. Since 1957 the church has been an active part of the United Church of Christ. The Rev. Cherie Hambleton is the current pastor of Philippus United Church of Christ.
