Biographical/Historical Note

The First Congregational Church, United Church of Christ of Atlanta, Georgia, is the second oldest Black Congregational Church in the United States. The American Missionary Association (AMA) established the Storrs School in Atlanta which was a center of social services, educational classes, and worship for the newly freed. Inspired by the worship services offered at the Storrs School, the ex-slaves petitioned for a church of their own. On May 22, 1867 a committee affiliated with the school voted to organize a Congregational Church.
