United In Christ Lutheran Church is the product of the joining of two Flint, Michigan LC-MS Churches; St. Andrew Lutheran Church and Mount Olive Lutheran Church. Under the guidance of then Pastor Gilbert Mabry, with the help of the Michigan District, United In Christ Lutheran Church was formed on the site of St. Andrew Lutheran Church. The church building and property for Mount Olive Lutheran Church has been sold.
Both Mount Olive Lutheran Church and St. Andrew Lutheran Church had strong ties to St. Paul Lutheran Church and School, Flint, Michigan. Mount Olive at one time supported two teachers at St. Paul Lutheran School and St. Andrew was a mission plant of St. Paul Lutheran Church. Those ties continue today as St. Paul is the only remaining Lutheran School in Flint.
