Photo of New Hope United Church of Christ Cemetery
Fissel's was formerly known as Jerusalem Church. In 1771 Frederick Fissel granted to the Calvinistic Presbyterians and to the Lutherans, a tract of land for a church site. In early days the Reformed Church, in some legal documents, was called the Calvinistic Presbyterian Church. It was founded by Zwingli and was Presbyterian in its polity. Toward the close of the eighteenth century, the word German Reformed Church came into general use. This is the same church body as the Calvinistic Presbyterians mentioned at the earliest date of record for Fissel's Church. In 1796 this is recorded as the Lutheran and Reformed Church of Shrewsbury Township. The original church was a small log building which was afterwards replaced by a larger one of the same kind. The second church was used as a house of worship until the year 1851, when a brick edifice was erected.
