St Paul United Church of Christ in Hermann Missouri is a member of the United Church of Christ, a progressive denomination with a deep and proud history in the United States. Our doors welcome both locals and those visiting on a short time basis. Several denominations merged in the middle of the 1900s to form the denomination, including the Congregational Church, which explains our name.
The denomination is divided into conferences. St Paul of Hermann is part of the Missouri Mid-South conference which includes over 150 churches. Each conference is then divided into associations. We are a member of the Eastern Association.
The United Church of Christ practices “congregational polity” which means that most major decisions are made by individual churches rather than by higher authorities in the church. Our relationships with other UCC churches around the country and in other parts of the world are “covenantal” and based in mutual respect and trust.
