HISTORICAL NOTE



The Zion Evangelical Church, near Falls City, Nebraska, was formed in 1886 by a group of German immigrants who had settled in Richardson County after the Civil War. For many years German was the language of worship but it was gradually replaced by English in the early decades of this century. The Congregational Christian churches and the Evangelical and Reformed Church merged in 1961. This congregation joined the new national body, the United Church of Christ, and assumed the title of Zion United Church of Christ.
