About People’s Church in Bayport, Minnesota








People’s Church, founded in 1916, is a community of faith where we accept and celebrate one another’s differences. We welcome and honor all people regardless of ethnicity, gender orientation, or what one’s walk of faith has been or what has led them to explore with us.

We follow the teachings of Christ and honor that individuals may come to their faith differently than one another. It is our hope and prayer that people may sense the living and loving Spirit of God (and fun!) among us and deepen their relationship with God who loves us unconditionally.

People’s Congregational Church is a member of the National Association of Congregational Christian Churches and functions under Congregational Polity.
