Since the forming of Immanuel Reformed Church in 1880, the denomination has merged with other churches over the decades. In June 1934, the Evangelical Synod united with the Reformed churches to become the Evangelical and Reformed Church. In June 1957, the E&R churches and the Congregational Christian churches merged to form the United Church of Christ. At that time two million members joined hands around the country.
