Evangelical St. John’s Church was organized in 1907 by a group of Germans from Russia in the “North Bottoms” area of Lincoln, Nebraska. The congregation belonged to the Evangelical Synod of North America until it became independent in 1926. In 1949 it joined the German Congregational Association of Nebraska and then became a member of the United Church of Christ when that body formed in the 1960s. In 1967 St. John’s United Church of Christ merged with nearby Salem United Church of Christ to form Faith United Church of Christ. The new church occupies the old Salem buildings and the St. John’s property was sold.


This collection of records of St. John’s United Church of Christ of Lincoln, Nebraska, consists of one volume on one reel of microfilm. This volume dates from 1907-1967 and contains records of membership, baptisms, marriages and burials. It was loaned for microfilming in April of 1981 by the Faith United Church of Christ and is filmed on one reel together with the records of Salem United Church of Christ. Records of Faith United Church of Christ were also microfilmed under this same collection number. They are on Reel 2 of the collection.

About History Nebraska
History Nebraska was founded in 1878 as the Nebraska State Historical Society by citizens who recognized Nebraska was going through great changes and they sought to record the stories of both indigenous and immigrant peoples. It was designated a state institution and began receiving funds from the legislature in 1883. Legislation in 1994 changed History Nebraska from a state institution to a state agency. The division is headed by Interim Director and CEO Jill Dolberg. They are assisted by an administrative staff responsible for financial and personnel functions, museum store services, security, and facilities maintenance for History Nebraska.
