East St. Louis Cluster

East St. Louis, IL is a city directly across the river from St. Louis, MO. East St. Louis, also known as ESTL or "East Boogie" is home to Olympian Champions Jackie Joyner-Kersee and Dawn Harper-Nelson. A hidden treasure is that of the Malcolm W. Martin Memorial Park Gateway Geyser, which is the tallest water fountain in the United States. The once bountiful ESTL has undergone its hardships but under the direction of Mayor Robert Eastern III, ESTL is rebuilding and is once again taking pride in its city.

UCM has many member congregations and organizations within the ESTL area and is actively looking for new members. If you're a Pastor or Leader in the ESTL area, we want to connect with you. If you can see your congregation or even yourself operating within the fields of social justice, we want to connect with you. If you want to link up and connect with other Pastors and Leaders in your area, we want to connect with you.
