Body Positive Community Library



At the church, we have a nice selection books about bodies, gender, puberty, and other age appropriate materials for families to borrow! Our new Body Positive Community Lending library is OPEN! It is on the lower level, next to the elevator. This is a new offering made possible by the Ashley Grant from the MN Conference UCC. This lending library is for ANYONE that accessed the building, it is a COMMUNITY lending library. We believe that these conversations are healthy to have at any age!

How it works-
Any time the building is open, the library is accessible.
Select the book from the shelf, pull out the first card, add your information to the card and place it in the out box.
The second card stays with the book. Please write a date 2 weeks out to remind yourself to return the book, so others can use it too.

If a book is found with damage please, bring it to the main office so we can repair it.
Have a book you would like to donate to the collection? Please drop it off in the main office.

Many thanks to Tom Flienfeld for building a beautiful book case to fit under the existing bulletin board. Thank you to the Ashley Endowment and MN Conference UCC for the micro grant to make this a reality.

Questions about the books, lending or workshop inquiries contact Kat @sapucc.org

Community Lending Library


At SAPUCC we have folks that enjoy reading and talking about what they have read. In the Fellowship Hall on the south-east corner there are books that can be signed out and taken home. There are large post-it notes in the covers to allow for written ideas from each person that has read the book. We encourage growth and learning at our own pace. This is a great option for a wide variety of fiction, non-fiction, current events and learning for anyone that is interested. Happy Reading!



Keystone Community Services

St. Anthony Park UCC is in partnership with Keystone Community Services. Headquartered in St. Paul's Merriam Park neighborhood, Keystone provides crisis assistance to people in need of rent and deposit assistance, household utilities, and car repairs. They also have 3 local food shelves that serve thousands of people every year. Keystone provides these services to residents of a particular service area in Ramsey County. The Keystone staff determines whether a person in need is eligible to receive services through their agency. St. Anthony Park supports Keystone financially and makes referrals to them.



St Anthony Park Co-Op Preschool

The Schubert Club - Music In The Park Series

Each season, Music in the Park Series presents a series of chamber music concerts at the acoustically and architecturally superb Saint Anthony Park United Church of Christ, "home" to the series since 1979. This intimate setting makes possible a connection between performers and audiences that cannot be duplicated in larger halls and offers listeners a rare opportunity to enjoy one of the richest and most varied forms of musical literature. Through imaginative and varied programming, traditional chamber music, jazz, new compositions, and popular music are all available in a context which links rather than separates them. It is this special quality about the series that draws composers, performers, and audience members alike to the Church.

For decades, Music in the Park Series and The Schubert Club collaborated on artistic projects. In July 2010 the organizations merged to become one. Music in the Park Series is now part of The Schubert Club and continues to flourish under the auspices of The Schubert Club and the care of Julie Himmelstrup as Artistic Director of the Series.
