This congregation, often called Maplewood’s first church, began in 1893 as the Church of the Covenant. In 1897, their church building, just a year old, was destroyed by a tornado.

By 1911, they had erected a new building on the same site, which they occupied for thirty years before relocating to St. Louis City. Their new home had been the McCausland Avenue Presbyterian Church. The congregation left the UCC in 1960, becoming a member of the Conservative Congregational Christian Conference.
