Union Christian Church (Tuskegee, Alabama)

Union Christian Church (Tuskegee, Alabama)

Union Christian Church, a Disciples of Christ congregation, was formed in the spring of 1897 by Evangelist John Allen Branch. Originally, the congregation met under a brush arbor located in rural Macon County, Alabama, near the Tuskegee National Forest. The original church was built on land donated by Congressman Charlie W. Thompson, and it was completed in 1899. In June of 1937, the church was destroyed in a fire. A vacant school building and 5 1/2 acres were purchased and served as the church facility from September 1937 to 1963. On September 19, 1963, Union Christian Church dedicated its current church building.

Union Christian Church is a member congregation of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) and the Alabama-Northwest Florida Region. The congregation has a participating membership of 174 and an average worship attendance of 92.

The Alabama Historical Society has listed Union Christian Church as a state historical landmark.
