United Church of Christ
Major Sect: Congregational

    Founded in the year 1957

Merger of the Evangelical and Reformed Church and the Congregational Christian Church. Each of these was the result of a merger of two earlier denominations, Pilgrims of Plymouth Plantation and the Puritans of Massachusetts Bay Colony, German Evangelical pastors of Missouri. The last church was formed by the merger of Lutheran and Reformed Churches in Germany. Whew! Now if they can just get the other 33,000 denominations to merge.
