A Spiritual, Loving, Relevant and Transforming Community

Our open and affirming church welcomes everyone

About Us

160 years of daring spiritual community, transforming the world with love—now more than ever!

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.

At the Special Meeting on April 15, Beth A. Faeth was called as a Minister at Plymouth Church. She will continue to serve as Minister for Congregational Care and liaison to the Boards of Worship and Community Life. Paula Northwood continues as Acting Senior Minister.
