In 2011, the old St. Thomas Church building was converted into one of the best dental offices in Chesterfield, MO, Wildhorse Dental. Here’s a look back at the rich history of the Wildhorse Dental building.
On October 7, 1907, Rev. Gustav Adolf Zimmer, pastor of St. Johns Evangelische Kirche at Bellefontaine, Missouri, conducted the first service of worship for the people who were to become St. Thomas United Church of Christ. A small group of faithful people met for worship in the building that housed Henry Wetzel’s Mercantile Company in Gumbo, Missouri. On December 22, 1907, those people officially organized themselves into St. Thomas Evangelische Kirche of Gumbo.
Land for the original church building was donated and on November 1, 1908, the cornerstone was laid for the sanctuary that was to serve the congregation for 50 years. In fact, a picture of the original church building hangs in the main dining area of the Old Spaghetti Factory in Chesterfield Commons.
In 1957, the Evangelical and Reformed churches united with the Congregational Christian churches to form the new denomination and identity of the United Church of Christ. (To learn more about the United Church of Church of Christ, check out the denomination’s website at ucc.org.)
In 1970, with a new name, St. Thomas United Church of Christ, and land for a new building, St. Thomas’ congregants built their current church on the highest hill in Chesterfield at 17842 Wild Horse Creek Road.
