Kehle, L., Pastor

The Community United Church of Christ has also been known as the German Evangelical Church and The Brick Church.

The Community Church was organized in 1901 and then called its first pastor, the Rev. L. Kehle, who came to Medford in February of that year.

Early services were held at the Temperance Hall.

Under the pastorate of Rev. Kehle, a lot was purchased in 1902 on Broadway for $800.00 and the congregation began building a Church.

The Church was dedicated in 1902 but while construction was ongoing, services were held in the basement.

In 1906, Rev. Kehle accepted a call to another Church.
