Nothing is constant but change.
The United Church of Christ (Congregational) was founded as the First Congregational Church of Wahpeton, which had its beginnings in April 1881. At that time twelve people gathered to form a Protestant church on the west side of the Red River. Of the twelve, seven were Congregationalists and five were Presbyterian; thus the first Congregational church in North Dakota was founded. It is interesting to note in the listing of those twelve people there were several women; this was many years before women could vote in many other churches or political elections.
This First Congregational Church became the United Church of Christ when in 1957 on a national level there was a merger of the Congregational churches, the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), and the Evangelical and Reformed Church. This union had as its motto “That they may all be one.”
The local church follows its Congregational leanings, with the congregation being autonomous, while relying on the national church for teaching materials, pastoral education, and united mission support.
I think that I shall never see A poem as lovely as a tree. .. A tree that looks at God all day, And lifts her leafy arms to pray; .. Poems are made by fools like me, But only God can make a tree. JOYCE KILMER
