Park City Community Church

A community of open hearts, open minds, and open doors ...
Park City Community Church was one of the first Protestant churches in the area, established by a Methodist Circuit Rider in the small mining town of Park City in 1881. By 1898 there was another Congregational church in town, but the great fire of that year razed both churches along with much of the town. Both churches rebuilt, but as the mining industry struggled these two churches chose to combine into one, calling themselves the Park City Community Church and coming under the denominational authority of the Methodist Episcopal Church (now the United Methodist Church). The "old" Park City Community Church was built around that time at the corner of Park Avenue and Fourth Street in Old Town Park City where the congregation remained until moving to its current location in 1991. A new fellowship hall and classroom addition was completed in 2005.
