Welcome! We are glad you’re here.

Rev. Lisa Bodenheim

Clark-Grace UCC, a cozy neighborhood church located in the first ring suburb of South St. Paul, is an Open and Affirming faith community. We welcome people regardless of age, sexual orientation, race, or abilities.

We are a paired faith community, led by Rev. Lisa Bodenheim of Clark UCC, and Rev. Oliver White of Grace UCC, an African American congregation. Joining as one for worship, we also do Bible Studies, choirs, Sunday School, and missions together.

We welcome the curious who ask questions about their faith and we welcome the serious who wish to strengthen a wobbly faith or challenge a complacent faith.

We are diverse pilgrims. We journey and work together. We reach out to serve our neighbors. Locally, we support Neighbors Inc, South St. Paul Restorative Justice, and South St. Paul Educational Foundation. Internationally and nationally, we support the United Church of Christ special offerings.

Join us as we seek to walk together in faith toward the heart of God.


Coming up!  Our 2nd Anniversary as Clark-Grace United Church of Christ.  We will be celebrating on Sunday, September 13. Worship at 10:00 am with Minnesota Conference United Church of Christ minister, Rev Shari Prestemon preaching and our Gospel Choir singing. Please join us as we celebrate. A potluck lunch will top off our day.
