Western Association

Church Directory

The Western Association of the Missouri Mid-South Conference, United Church of Christ includes 43 congregations located in such divergent places as the rich farmland along the Missouri River and the beautiful Ozark Mountains, in small towns, urban and suburban settings, and in open country. The Western Association includes the region from Highway 63 in the central part of Missouri all the way to the Kansas state line, bounded on the north by Iowa and stretching south into Northwest Arkansas

Churches in this area are grouped into four clusters: Kansas City/St. Joseph; Lafayette; Central; and Ozark clusters. Cluster churches often cooperate in special worship celebrations and ministry opportunities.

We are an interesting mix of persons, “united in our diversity.” Our members come from all walks of life, representing many different backgrounds and faith experiences. Many of our congregations celebrate a German evangelical or reformed tradition, others trace their roots to the Congregational Christian tradition. We also have two Marshallese churches located in Northwest Arkansas.  Each of our congregations has its own style of worship and congregational life.
