In 1970, TUCC was founded by a group of Taiwanese immigrants lived in the metropolitan areas of New York City. The congregation initially gathered at a facility in the Union Theological Seminary in the upper west side of Manhattan. Thus is the word "Union" part of the name of the congregation. In the late 70s, the congregation conducted Services on Sunday afternoons at the 86th Street Presbyterian Church in Manhattan. In 1983 we settled on the current location in Long Island City, Queens. Subsequently, a resolution was passed to join the Reformed Church of America and became a member of RCA's Queens Classis.
Many of our members have strong ties with Presbyterian Church in Taiwan. Over the years our church has actively involved in helping the ministry and social concerns of the PCT. Families newly arrived from Taiwan continues to join the church. Taiwanese students studying in New York City area also come to join us in worship and many activities.
TUCC now serves both first generation Taiwanese immigrants (Taiwanese service) and second generation Taiwanese Americans (English service). On the First Sunday of every month, and on Easter, Thanksgiving, and Christmas Sunday, joined services (bilingual) are conducted in our main sanctuary.
The original parsonage house was demolished and a new three-story multi-purpose building is under construction to replace it. English service will be moved to the new building when the construction is completed. A day-care center is also commissioned to utilize the space. In the mean time a property adjacent to the parking lot was annexed in 1997. It now serves as a make-shift chapel for the English service, the youth activity center and pastor's office.
The gracious Lord has led His people to this new land, established a congregation and blessed it with many talented people, equipped and commanded it to be the witness of Jesus Christ.
