St. John’s United Church of Christ, Mehlville

I always figured St. John Church Road, just off Lindbergh Boulevard in the Mehlville area went to a church, and I finally went up and investigated. A short drive up the road, and there’s this nice English Gothic Revival church with a lot of history.

Now a member of the United Church of Christ, this was originally founded as the St. John’s Evangelisch Church and traces its founding back to 1838, when this area was farmland far from St. Louis.

As is typical of Protestant churches, the individual congregations operate their own cemeteries, and do not have a central authority that runs them like the Catholic Church.
