St. Marcus United Church of Christ 
2102A Russell
St. Louis, Missouri  63104

Founded 1843

St. Marcus began life as the South Church (Untere Kirche) of the German Evangelical Congregation that separated from Holy Ghost Church in 1843. In 1848, the South Church separated from the North Church (Obere Kirche), taking the name "St. Marcus" in 1856 (the North Church became St. Peter's). The congregation razed its 1845 church and dedicated a new church seating 800 in 1867. The building was heavily damaged by the May 1896 tornado but rebuilt. When St. Marcus members began moving out of the neighborhood, the congregation bought a lot on the southwest corner of Russell and McNair Avenues in 1906 and dedicated a new church on March 14, 1915. Schisms in the congregation led to the founding of St. Pauls Church in 1848 and Jesus Church in 1894.
