United Church of Christ (UCC) | Print |

The German Evangelical Church first appeared in St. Louis in 1834 with the establishment of Holy Ghost Church. By 1841 Holy Ghost split forming two additional churches, St. Marcus on the south, and St. Peter on the north. In 1934, the Evangelical Synod merged with the Reformed Church. In 1957, this organization merged with the Association of Congregational Christian Churches to form the United Church of Christ.
