Union Avenue Christian Church
Union Avenue Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), is a St. Louis, Missouri, faith community where diverse hearts and minds come together to worship God and demonstrate Christ's love by becoming Biblically informed, socially responsible, and artistically alive.
Our congregation is diverse in age, race, gender identity, sexual orientation, biblical interpretation, HIV status, physical ability, and political inclination. We celebrate and honor that diversity and welcome the struggle necessary to maintain it. This diversity is exemplified in our leadership, our study together, and even in the comfort of our various dress styles. There is often someone in a dress suit on Sunday morning sitting near another person in casual clothing, including shorts.
