Ministry Description We are a 152-year-old congregation representing the Greater Mankato area. As the largest UCC Church in the Minnesota River Valley our congregation is made up of a wide variety of perspectives, including moderate, liberal, and progressive members. We acknowledge, celebrate, and are tolerant of these differences. We have a large number (74%) of long-term members (10+ years). We are an Open and Affirming (1994), Fair Trade (2012), Creation Justice (2018), and Immigrant Welcoming (2019) congregation. We have wonderful facilities and grounds with a church building constructed in 2002. In addition, we are on strong financial ground. Our Vision Statement adopted in 2017 is “to be widely known as a faith community that provides an extravagant welcome to all, supports one another’s spiritual journey, no matter where we are on our search, and opens hearts and minds to the hungers of our world and inspires just action in response.” To get there, we need to have a strong partnership with pastoral and lay leadership as we collaborate to make this vision a reality. We also need to be intentional about bringing in new members, especially families. To help us grow into our future, we are seeking a full time settled pastor who will help us build a sense of fellowship, effectively plan and lead worship, and actively bring in new members.
