In 1886, the Evangelical Synod Mission Board organized a new congregation, called Ebenezer Evangelical, to serve southwestern St. Louis. The members initially met in a former Methodist chapel on McNair Avenue, and the congregation purchased the building the following spring. They erected a parochial school building in 1887. The growing congregation built a church on an adjoining lot and dedicated that building in 1891. In 1964, the struggling St. Andrew Evangelical Church on California and Juniata Street merged with Ebenezer to become the Epiphany United Church of Christ. The church continues to serve the Benton Park neighborhood at the former Ebenezer church location.
