The Federal Council of Churches was a prominent cooperative of churches, formed in 1908, at the height[1] of the Social Gospel movement.[2]

It merged in 1950 with other organizations to become the National Council of Churches.

Early on, Harry F. Ward, a prominent communist and later president of the ACLU, was the council's secretary.[3]
