First wave of German immigration brings the Reformed faith_German Reformed Church
While Congregationalism was evolving into a more pluralistic faith in New England, a stream of German and German and Swiss settlers-farmers, laborers, trade and craftpeople, many of them "redemptioners" who had sold their future services to pay for passage flowed into Pennsylvania and the Middle Atlantic colonies. Refugees from European wars, their concerns were pragmatic. They did not bring pastors with them. People of Reformed faith, their faith was sustained by the Bible, the Heidelberg Catechism and family worship at home.
