Grace UCC of Grosse Pointe Park is part of the Detroit Metropolitan Association, of the Southeast Area Associations, of Michigan Conference, United Church of Christ.  In 1924 a small frame building was erected on the present lot.  Then in 1954 they built the present church.  The frame building was kept until they could make an addition where the frame church sat. In October 2004, they celebrated 80 years of existence with a catered dinner.  About 64 people were invited to attend.  The congregation is very small.  They have about 20 members who are trying very hard to keep the church going.  Many of them are in ill health so a lot of tasks fall on the shoulders of a few. Their interim pastor of many years was the late Rev. Henry Reinwald.  Their current pastor is The Rev. Marcia Farriow.
