Silver Spring Evangelical United Brethren Church was built circa 1887. Thanks to information provided from the Lancaster County Historical Society, I learned that the church was used by that denomination until 1960 when it merged with the Centerville Church to form Hempfield UMC. Next, it was used as Silver Spring Baptist Church until 1980 when they moved nearby and sold the building to St. Mary’s Coptic Orthodox Church, was was also formed that year. The Coptic Orthodox Church is a Christian denomination based primarily in Egypt. Estimates vary, but church membership in the U.S. is probably about half a million people.
