Designed by their leader, Joseph M. Bimeler, the
Meeting House is the second house of worship
used by the Society of Separatists of Zoar. Men
and
women entered through separate front doors:
men used the right door and women the left.
Bimeler and his successors gave "discourses" (not
sermons) from a table located between the doors.
The
Meeting House
has been in continuous use
since it was built in 1853 and as of 201l houses
the Zoar United Church of Christ.

The Zoar Separatists were so called because they
left the established Lutheran church in their native
southeastern Germany. As Pietists, their faith was
based on the Bible and centered on a mystical and
direct relationship with God. They also believed in
Christ's imminent return to earth and in individual
spiritual rebirth, the Wiedergeburt. Worship services
included the singing of hymns, accompanied by
musical instruments and, after 1873, an organ that
is still in use in 2011. The dissolution of the Society
in 1898 also ended the Separatists' religious practices.
