The first church at the town site of Cullman. Founded May 1, 1874, at the beginning of the second year of settlement.

An ethnic German church formed by immigrant families. Services held exclusively in the German language until 1932. In 1937, the Evangelical German churches merged with the Reformed churches and the national Evangelical and Reformed denomination was established. St. John's became a part of the United Church of Christ in 1957.
