    This congregation was organized by The Rev. William Vollbrecht and 24 charter members at the home of local merchant Herman Knittel in 1894. That year The Rev. Herman Specht was chosen as pastor and a church building was erected nearby on land acquired from August and Amalia Pfefferkorn. The church cemetery was established in the early 1900s. A new brick sanctuary was built at this site in 1951. The congregation changed its name to St. John's United Church of Christ in 1957. The congregation supports various local, national, and foreign outreach programs.
