Records of a United Church of Christ (Congregational Church) congregation (1921- ) in the Town of Somers, Kenosha County, Wisconsin, which had its origins in two older congregations of the community: the Somers (Pike Grove) Presbyterian Church, which was founded by the Reverend Stephen Peet in 1839, and the Somers Methodist Episcopal Church founded in 1863. Included are sacramental records, minutes of congregation and committee meetings, lists of members and church officers, publications, annual reports, financial records, and church club records. The sacramental records document only the Presbyterian congregation for the period 1851-1921 and the Congregational Church for the period 1921-1947. The club records, which are particularly extensive, include minutes and account books documenting the Pike Grove Bible Society (1842-1966) and various women's groups.
