This is First Christian.

 

“Come on by on a Sunday morning. Sing with us. Pray with us. Come to Christ’s Table. And, don’t forget to stay for coffee.”

First Christian Church of Minneapolis is a small congregation located in the Whittier neighborhood in Minneapolis, Minnesota.  We share our neighborhood with cultural institutions such as the Minneapolis Institute of Arts and the Children’s Museum. Minneapolis’ famed “Eat Street” otherwise known as Nicollet Avenue is nearby.  The Whittier Neighborhood is rich in diversity, with people from many nations and races who represent a multiplicity of spoken languages.  We worship with two other congregations, Lyndale United Church of Christ and Salem English Lutheran Church at the SpringHouse Ministry Center.  SpringHouse is a new way of sharing ministry together, where three congregations share one building doing ministry and mission in the neighborhood.

Since 1877, First Christian has been a living witness of Jesus Christ in South Minneapolis.    On a Sunday morning, you will see young and old, rich and poor, gay and straight coming together to worship God.  You will hear music from various traditions, the word of God preached, and your prayers will be heard by God and the church community.

We might be small in number, but we are mighty in impact.  We are engaged in our community, supporting ministries like Downtown Congregations to End Homelessness, Groveland Foodshelf, Feed My Starving Children, Community Emergency Service, the Aliveness Project and much more.  We believe in getting involved actively in mission projects and bringing the love of Jesus in acts of justice here in the Twin Cities and around the world. Check our recent video recap of all the mission and ministry we did in 2010:

 

As part of our Disciples tradition, we offer communion every Sunday.  All are invited to table of Jesus, no matter who you are.  At First Christian , the bread and cup, God’s meal, is offered to everyone , no matter where you are on life’s journey.

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.

First Christian is affiliated with the Christian Church in the Upper Midwest and the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ).
We are not as well known here in Minnesota as we are in other places, so to find out more about the tradition we belong to, please check out the video below which explains why FCC is part of this “Movement for Wholeness.”
