Union Sunday School
Mizpah, Atlantic County

On Route 40 near Mizpah you will find this small wooden frame building erected as a Sunday School in 1894. Many congregations got their start with an initial Sunday School and occasional Protestant non-denominational services by a visiting preacher, and finally a regular congregation. Many were designated as "union" churches because they were comprised of members belowing to two or three or more denominations. It is now occupied by the Jesus Life Services congregation.
