The United Protestant Church, also known as The Church of a Thousand Trees, is a historic church at S. Denali and Elmwood Streets in Palmer, Alaska. It is a rustic log two-story structure, in the shape of a cross. A small bell tower with a dormer roof rises just above the main entrance. The interior is shaped from rustic log elements, with carved pews. The church property includes a manse and garage, built from similar materials.[2]

The church was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1980.[1]
