Welcome To Mother African Union Churh


I would like to welcome you to the Mother African Union Church Website, which we affectionately call the Motherland Nation. We are the oldest incorporated African-American Church in the country.  And that is just a small tidbit of the rich heritage our church enjoys.

If you’d like to learn more about our heritage, our ministry work areas, our programs, and most importantly our church family, please explore our website further. 

If you are looking for a church home that gets involved in God’s transformation of the community; focuses on the Word of God and its meaning for our lives; praises the Lord and spreads the gospel through song; has plenty of food, fellowship, and fun activities; a “come as you are” worship atmosphere; 8:00 and 11:00 Sunday worship services; then look no further.  We would love to have you join our church family.

If you have a church home, and just want to visit, we invite you to visit any time. 

Yours in Christ,

Lawrence M. Livingston

Rev. Dr. Lawrence M. Livingston, Senior Pastor
