At People’s Church, we celebrate our diverse qualities and experiences. Faith in a loving God supports our efforts to follow Jesus in loving God, self and others. Trusting that each person’s relationship with God is unique, we wonder together about Love’s active presence in and through our lives.

Are you looking for a church that explores a progressive understanding of the Christian faith?

Do you yearn to deepen your spiritual journey, valuing both questions and affirmations of faith?

Are you seeking a group of people who offer genuine care and compassion?

Are you searching for a congregation where LGBTQ+ persons are welcomed and affirmed?

Do you long to explore the intersection of Christian faith with environmental, economic and racial justice?

We invite you to join us for any upcoming event. You just may find what you’re looking for in our vibrant little congregation!

*In early August, we shifted away from any indoor worship services based on MDH recommendations in light of Washington County's current substantial rate of transmission of Covid-19's Delta variant.

Our inclement weather plan
In cases of light or moderate rain, we will shift a stone's throw away to the Barker’s Alps picnic shelter for our 9:30 worship service. During the remainder of summer and early fall, the only time we will cancel outdoor worship and record indoors (with only worship leaders present) will be in the case of a “heavy rain event.”
