History

First, it must be pointed out, there is no denomination or association of Federated Churches. Wherever one finds a Federated Church, two or more local churches have merged.

“Federated” describes the way our church is organized. We are actually two denominations.

The United Church of Christ and The Presbyterian-USA churches joined together in 1923 to worship and serve God together. The Federation is a relationship which has fostered a faithful fellowship, service and witness to the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.

We even have community members who affiliate with neither denomination but have membership with the church.
