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.

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

First Service, 9:45 a.m., Second Service, 10:30 a.m. Starting Sept. 9, new times, new opportunities!
At 9 o’clock, we will have an expanded First Service—still creative and jazz-focused, yet sharing the sermon and text with Second Service. Sundays at 10, people of all ages will have education offerings, which we encourage everyone to attend. At 11 o’clock, our traditional Second Service includes the Plymouth Choir and organist Philip Brunelle.
