Do you long for...
…a church that explores a progressive understanding of the Christian faith?
…a group of people who aim to know and extend care to one another?
… a community where LGBTQ+ persons are welcomed and affirmed?
…intersections of faith with environmental, economic and racial justice?
…a deepening spiritual journey, open to questions and affirmations of faith?
As a United Church (a placeholder name as our merged church discerns its name this fall), we engage in experiments and cherish traditions, finding life in both. Faith in a loving God supports our efforts to follow Jesus in loving our neighbors and ourselves. We worship, learn, play, and pursue justice together. We support one another through prayer, conversation, and collaborative efforts to follow the Spirit's leading toward deeper and broader welcome. Trusting that each person’s faith journey is unique, we wonder together about God’s active presence in and through our lives.
We invite you to join us for any upcoming event. You just may find what you’re looking for in our vibrant little congregation!

A United Church
...with roots in People's Congregational Church (Bayport) and St. Peter's United Church of Christ (Stillwater). A time of discernment in early 2023 culminated in a June decision to faithfully pursue a merger. We launch our new congregation on October 1st and look forward to all we will do and be together!
A Dually Affiliated Congregation
A United Church launched in October as a congregation dually affiliated with the UCC and NACCC. Predecessor St. Peter's United Church of Christ (UCC) has been a long-standing member of the MN Conference UCC. Predecessor People's Congregational Church has been a long-standing member of the National Association of Christian Congregational Churches (NACCC) and added an affiliation with the MN Conference UCC in May 2023.
