About Us

First Church of Minnesota is located in the historic Marcy-Holmes neighborhood of Minneapolis, near the University of Minnesota and Dinkytown. We are an Open & Affirming congregation in the United Church of Christ, a progressive faith community housed in a beautiful old building. All are welcome for worship and fellowship.

This blog was created to keep our community connected during the summer, especially for those who travel away from home in these months.  Clergy will use this space for weekly reflection, sermon posting, and… who knows?  Stay tuned.

    Dear Jane,

    I’ve been enjoying your terrific blog (and Abby’s) as I roam the site. Would your bloggers enjoy reading the words from the memorial service for Dick (Kozelka) last May? I have them ready, finally!

    Warmly, with best wishes to you and your family and the congregation for the New Year,
    Kathy Kolb
