St. Paul's United Church of Christ
is a member congregation
of the Iowa Conference of the United Church of Christ In 1957 the Congregational Christian Church and the Evangelical and Reformed Church united to form a new denominatin, the United Church of Christ. This union brought together the oldest denomination entirely born in the United States, the Congregational Christian Church and a denomination that, while uniquely American in spirit, also had solid roots in old Europe. The United Church of Christ celebrated it's 50th birthday in 2007.
