Evangelical United Brethren joined the Methodists in 1968, there became a new denomination:

the United Methodists. In 1970 there was a merger with the New Hope Presbyterian Church,

on Ferry St and that building became the free library. The Presbyterians had organized in

1872, a branch of Lambertville, and were allied with Thompson Memorial until 1893. Page

ABRAHAM LINCOLN (1864) 2nd Inaugural

With malice toward none; with charity for all; with firmness in the right, as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in, to bind up the nation's wounds; to care for him who shall have borne the battle, and for his widow, and his orphan - to do all which may achieve a just and lasting peace among ourselves and with all nations.
