United Church of Chester


  • From the church’s mission statement:  “The United Church of Chester was formed over 65 years ago in 1941 by the uniting of two Chester congregations, the Congregational Church (founded in 1740) and the Baptist Church (founded in 1822). In 1948, the two separate sanctuaries were physically joined together to complete the uniting process. We are a diverse Protestant denomination and are a member of the United Church of Christ, a community of faith that seeks to respond to the Gospel of Jesus Christ in word and deed. We are an Open and Affirming Church so we welcome all seekers to journey with us.”
  • United Church of Chester realized that its south facing roof line was a perfect platform to support a solar power system, and that it was being under utilized. Partnering with Star Power LLC, a new 13.5 KW PV system was installed at no cost to the church and is expected to generate 15,000 kWh each year and save 12% on its electric utility costs. It is expected that 100% of the church’s annual electric usage will come from the new solar power system reducing that component of the church’s carbon footprint to zero.
  • The solar power system was designed and installed by Waldo Renewable Electric, LLC.
