The Federal Council of the Churches of Christ in America was formed in 1908. Its delegates came from thirty denominations, united for service through a variety of departments. It continued to represent its member denominations for forty-two years. In 1950, the FCC, now representing twenty-seven denominations, joined with seven other national interdenominational organizations to form the National Council of the Churches of Christ in the United States of America. The FCC coordinated the efforts of member denominations in areas of social and church-related issues by means of conferences and publications in order to initiate and stimulate action in areas such as ministry of the church to older people, the role of women in the church, and ethical aspects of economic life. The collection includes annual, biennial and quadrennial meeting reports, pamphlets that were published by and about the FCC, two copies of the Federal Council Bulletin, and information regarding the conclusion of the FCC as an organization and its joining with the National Council of the Churches of Christ in the United States of America.
