Regarding Evangelical Synod of North America. The Evangelical Synod of North America (originally Der Deutsche Evangelische Kirchenverein des Westens) was possibly the first Christian denomination to arise from the immigration of evangelical Saxons (i.e., Lutherans) to this region in the late 1830s. Almost a century later, it merged with the Reformed Church in America. After merging with the Congregational Christian Churches, the denomination is known today as the United Church of Christ (UCC).
