Who We Are

Our worship includes sermons for today’s world, delivered with a touch of humor.

We are a congregation that enjoys singing traditional hymns, including occasional praise and gospel music.

While we are a predominantly older congregation, we enjoy the participation of and fellowship with people of all ages.

We are a member of the Presbyterian Church (USA) and of the Presbytery of Minnesota Valleys. 


We invite you to join us each week as we gather to learn God’s ways and how to live them out in our daily lives, as we interact with family, friends, and community.

We are not perfect but we are all called into a relationship with God. neighbors, and community. We are open to seekers, doubters, and believers. Come, see God’s work in action every Sunday.
