Tunionstlouisparkell us about your work in the community or in the world:

We actively support our local food shelves, homeless youth ministries, weekend take-home food program for local school children; we cultivate and promote our rain garden, we fly the rainbow flag to show that we are an Open and Affirming Congregation, and we financially support national UCC mission programs.

What do you think is the single, most important, life-giving characteristic of your church?

We pride ourselves on community building in worship and fellowship time — and we take pride in promoting and actively supporting local, national, and global missions.

Why do people worship at your church?

We preach the Gospel as it relates to the problems of today, we sing with strong, joy-filled voices, we actively engage children in worship, our choirs and musicians gift us with all kinds of music — old and new songs — presented in a variety of ways so there are songs and styles to make everyone happy.

Anything else you think is important about who you are?

We continually seek to be relevant — looking for ways to make a difference in our community and world — we are proud to be UCC.

We are located in St. Louis Park on the beautiful corner of 36th and Alabama Avenues.  Our church was founded in 1883 and our pastor is Barbara Martin.  We average nearly 100 adult, youth, and children each week.
