About Union

Union Congregational Church belongs to the United Church of Christ (UCC) denomination, founded in 1957 as the union of several Christian traditions, including Congregational of which we were a part.

The United Church of Christ (UCC) is one of the most progressive of the mainline denominations. Check out our list of “UCC Firsts”!  Though we’re the oldest church in St. Louis Park (1883) and our faith is 2000 years old, our thinking is not!

We’re the church of:

  • “she’s Jewish and I’m agnostic”
  • Children should be seen and heard in worship
  • We believe all families are sacred

In the UCC, we like to say that “God is still speaking.” In other words, we can look to the Word of God in Scriptures but also to the “presence and power of the Holy Spirit to prosper its creative and redemptive work in the world.”

The UCC affirms the ideal that Christians do not always have to agree to live together in communion. In fact, while the UCC tends to be progressive, we are one of the most diverse Christian denominations in the United States.
