About Us

The mission of Community United Church of Christ is to encourage each other in the Christian faith by nurturing each one’s spiritual journey, supporting and celebrating each other and sharing the Gospel of Christian love through service, sacrament, and outreach. Community United Church of Christ is an open and affirming congregation, welcoming all persons regardless of race, gender, identity, sexual orientation, marital status, age, mental and physical ability, as well as ethnic or socio-economic background into the full life and ministry of the church.

Community United Church of Christ has served as a gathering of God’s people in St. Paul Park, Minnesota for more than 125 years. Our faith is 2000 years old; our thinking is not. We are a caring and welcoming community brought together by the life and teachings of Jesus Christ. Inspired by his example, we share faith, hope and love to everyone within and beyond the church. You need not be a member of the church to receive the rites of baptism, communion, marriage and burial.

We are an Open and Affirming congregation of the United Church of Christ, which means we affirm people and families of all types, including those who are gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender, as well as people from all races, genders, identities, relationships, ages, abilities and economic backgrounds. Every person is a child of God whom we are called to love and serve. Jesus turns nobody away, so neither do we.

If you seek a place for worship and hope, please come to one of our services and experience the wideness of God’s welcome for yourself.

No matter who you are, or where you are on life's journey, you are welcome at Community UCC!
