Welcome to Plymouth Congregational Church

Plymouth Congregational Church is a lively, open-minded spiritual community of 2,000 members welcoming all people and all families. We are spiritual, loving, relevant and transforming.  

Committed to social action since our founding in 1857, Plymouth extends compassion to communities near and far, engages today’s issues in light of tradition and embraces the change we want to see. Grounded in the Christian faith, we nurture thoughtful approaches to spirituality in children, youth and adults.

The church, located between LaSalle and Nicollet Avenues and Groveland and Franklin Avenues, at the southern edge of downtown Minneapolis, draws worshippers from around the Twin Cities metro area.

We are pleased to announce our new Senior Minister at Plymouth, the Rev. Dr. Carla J. Bailey. Carla Bailey is a strong and energetic spiritual leader who weaves together pastoral and prophetic roles. You may listen to her lead the First Service and/or preach at the 10:30 service via our sermons page; you also may view video of her 10:30 sermon. Please learn more about Carla Bailey on our News page. On June 28, Carla Bailey preached at 9:50 and 10:30 a.m. services. A special meeting followed, with a unanimous yes vote by the congregation. She begins the first Sunday in October.
