History

Established 1856; still active in 2016

In 1856, a group from Holy Ghost Evangelical Church, led by their pastor, Rev. Picker, organized the Independent German Evangelical Protestant Congregation at 8th Street and Mound Avenue. They sold the site to the North St. Louis Christian Church in 1869 and moved again. During this time, they became known as the Independent Evangelical Protestant Church.

In 1917, they moved again within St. Louis. By this time, they were also called the Independent Evangelical Congregational Church. In 1957, their official name became the Congregational United Church of Christ.

In 1959 and 1960, the congregation held services in the Paul Revere Temple before relocating once again, this time to their present location in north St. Louis County, in 1960. In 1998, they assumed their current name.
