About Us

Plymouth Congregational Church is a progressive faith community grounded in the Christian tradition. In mutual care and with respect for our diverse understandings of God, we seek to embody the radical love and justice found in the life, teachings and spirit of Jesus.

Located at the southern edge of downtown Minneapolis, Plymouth Congregational Church offers worship services and spiritual learning opportunities for all ages that are relevant to the world in which we live.

We are committed to creating sanctuary for the soul and seeking the sacred in all ways. We engage the ancient teachings to bring them alive today, nourishing and expanding hearts and minds to become the change we want to see in the world.

Leadership nominations are open for positions on boards, Deacons and as Leadership Council Chair-Elect and Secretary. Please nominate future Plymouth leaders (including yourself!) using this form.

The Space Between is a mini-blog for our congregation during this time of transition, written by Interim Minister Dan Wolpert.

First Service, 9 a.m.; Second Service, 11 a.m.
 Sundays at 10, people of all ages have education offerings, which we encourage everyone to attend.
