Early in the1986 union of Reformation and First Christian Churches, the congregation worshipped in the First Christian building. Both that structure and Reformation's were put on the market with the understanding that the congregation would use whichever building that remained after the other was sold. The First Christian property was bought by a Korean congregation and United Christian occupied the Reformation building in the summer of 1988. When the need for a homeless shelter became apparent, the vacant Reformation building was offered to the American Red Cross as a shelter during the winter of 1986-87. Some church members volunteered to work with shelter residents and that contact developed an awareness of their problems. Meanwhile, some neighbors of the Reformation property were incensed at the presence of those they deemed undesirable. The shelter experience of United Christian, and other area churches which provided volunteers, inspired an effort to establish a permanent shelter building and to expand the supply of low-cost housing. Bucks County leased a portion of its property in Levittown, at $1 per year, to the American Red Cross. Funded by private donations, a 100-bed shelter was constructed by the county Homebuilders Association and opened in 1989. Also about that time, the first Liberian refugee family began to attend United Christian. They had attended a church closer to their home, but felt unwelcome there. As more refugees arrived in this area, word spread that they were welcome at United Christian. Some of the Liberian members have now left the church, but others have stayed, several taking leadership positions. After Pastor Alfred Krass retired in 1999, members of the church who are ordained clergy, but are not employed as clergy, volunteered to preach at Sunday worship on a rotating schedule. Their service allowed the church to build enough savings to call a pastor. Meanwhile, strong lay leadership kept administrative matters functioning. In September 2003, the Rev. Susie Brannon Smith accepted a call to be pastor. Her energetic and imaginative leadership have inspired enthusiasm in the growing congregation.
