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.
We are joyfully committed to intellectual integrity, the arts, diversity, community and justice. All families are affirmed at Plymouth; we have a long history of welcoming LGBTQ people in this open and affirming congregation, including our ministers.
The church is located on the southern edge of downtown Minneapolis, between LaSalle and Nicollet, and Groveland and Franklin Avenues. Directions and parking information available here.
Plymouth Congregational Church in Minneapolis was founded in 1857. From its first days, the congregation was committed to addressing social ills. Our tradition of compassion and commitment to social justice continues to this day. [For a building guide, click here.]
We follow the Congregational Way, which at the most basic level means there is no outside or higher authority that can impose any idea, form of worship, governance system or policy on a congregation. Still, we listen to important voices – including other congregational churches, other nearby faith communities, our neighborhood organizations and others to whom we feel accountable.
As an independent Congregational Church, Plymouth’s congregation makes the major decisions, guided by a robust governance of lay leaders: Deacons, Leadership Council and Boards.
