First Christian Church of Minneapolis is a vibrant, growing community located in the Whittier neighborhood and bordering the Lyn-Lake business district of Minneapolis. “Eat Street”, otherwise known as Nicollet Avenue is just a few blocks away. The Whittier Neighborhood is rich in diversity, with people from many nations and races who represent a multiplicity of spoken languages.
Since 1877, First Christian has been a living witness of Jesus Christ in Minneapolis. On a Sunday morning, you will find yourself among a rich diversity of people. You will hear music from various traditions, engaging sermons, and the opportunity to bring joys and concerns to God and the church community. We worship at the SpringHouse Ministry Center with two other congregations, Lyndale United Church of Christ and Salem English Lutheran Church. SpringHouse is a new way of sharing ministry together, where three congregations share one building doing ministry and mission in the neighborhood.
We are mighty in impact. Through the work of our Mission & Outreach Team, we partner with a variety of community organizations meeting basic needs in the areas of hunger, homelessnesses, refugee services, and support for those dealing with HIV/AIDS, among others. We also partner with national, denominational and international organizations. Learn more
There are a variety of ministries available for all age groups, from book studies to women’s ministries, to our wonderful music program, just to name a few. Learn more
Our services last 60-75 minutes, and lean towards a traditional style of worship. No dress code, just a lot of love, something for the kids, and, as part of our Disciples tradition, we offer communion every Sunday. The bread and cup, God’s meal, is offered to everyone, no matter where you are on life’s journey. All are welcome! Transportation is also available; please contact the church office by the Thursday prior.
First Christian Church is a congregation within the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), a movement for wholeness in a fragmented world. As part of the one body of Christ, we welcome all to the Lord’s Table as God has welcomed us. The Disciples are not a denomination you may have heard of, but we are doing mighty things. Learn more about the Disciples.
We are a part of the Christian Church in the Upper Midwest, the regional expression of the wider church. Located in Newton, Iowa, the Upper Midwest Region hosts a beautiful Christian Conference Center where young and old gather for camps and retreats. This is also the location of the Regional Office.
FCC is an Open and Affirming ministry of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) and partners with GLAD Alliance, called to join in God’s work of transforming the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) into a just and inclusive church that welcomes persons of all gender expressions and sexual identities into the full life and leadership of the church.
So, come on by on a Sunday morning. Sing with us. Pray with us.
Come to Christ’s Table. Don’t forget to stay for coffee and fellowship.
