History in the United States

In the 1700’s, German settlers who were part of the Dutch Reformed Church, formed their own synod and called it the Reformed Church in the United States (RCUS). In 1934, they united with the Evangelical Synod of North America which, before 1927 was known as the German Evangelical Synod of North America and was originally formed in 1840 at Deutsche Evangelische St. Johannes Gemeinde Zu Gravois by German immigrants. This unified church was called the Evangelical and Reformed Church and eventually joined with the Congregational Christian Church in 1957. Since that time this unification of churches is called the United Church of Christ. (UCC). For further information visit the United Church of Christ website.
