Historical Note

The Southern Synod of the Evangelical and Reformed Church has its origins in German Reformed Churches that were established in North Carolina in the Eighteenth century. The Evangelical and Reformed Church was formed in 1934 by the merger of the Reformed Church in the United States with the Evangelical Synod of North America. The Southern Synod was formed in 1939; after the merger with the Congregational Churches to form the United Church of Christ in 1957, the Southern Synod became part of the Southern Conference of the UCC. The Standard underwent several name changes during the time it was published. The publication was entitled The Standard of the Evangelical and Reformed Church in North Carolina. Beginning with the September 1, 1939 issue, the title was changed to The Standard of the Southern Synod, Evangelical and Reformed Church. With the August 1, 1950 issue, the name was changed to The Southern Synod Standard: Official Publication of the Southern Synod, Evangelical and Reformed Church. Beginning with the October 15, 1955 issue, the name was changed to The Standard: Official Publication of the Southern Synod, Evangelical and Reformed Church. After the merger of the Evangelical and Reformed Church with the Congregational Christian Churches, the name changed to The Standard: Official Publication of the Southern Synod, Evangelical and Reformed Church (The United Church of Christ). According to a note on the first page of the December 1, 1965 issue, the December 15, 1966 issue of The Standard was the final issue.
