A Reconciling and Altar for All Congregation

Members of Faith at the Reconciling Methodists boothOpen Hearts, Open Minds,
Open Doors.  Welcome!

Faith United Methodist Church believes that we are all children of God, created by God with our many differences, and that all are welcome at God's table. We recognize that God's love is not limited by the boundaries of age, race, ethnicity, culture, gender identity, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, physical capability, or mental ability.

We believe that prejudice, hatred, or discrimination directed toward any individual or group is contrary to the life and spirit of Jesus Christ. Therefore, we shall work to eliminate prejudice and discriminatory practices within ourselves and our community, and to show grace, in Jesus' name. And we shall open our doors to same-gender and transgender couples seeking to unite in marriage and all the blessings, rights and responsibilities thereof. We will honor and celebrate the wedding of any prepared couple who seek to commit their lives to one another in marriage.

We proclaim ourselves a Reconciling Ministry and an Altar for All Congregation and welcome all who seek a relationship with God. We're glad you are here!

News at Faith

At an all-church meeting on February 11, the congregation of Faith UMC voted overwhelmingly to become an Altar for All church, which means that the church will welcome, honor and celebrate the wedding of any prepared couple who seek to commit their lives to one another in marriage.

During Lent, Faith UMC members gather with the congregations of Community UMC of Columbia Heights and Northeast UMC of northeast Minneapolis for joint Wednesday night services. A soup supper is served at 5:30 p.m., followed by worship at 6:15 p.m. Also, Faith UMC will have special services during Holy Week and Easter, April 1.

 


Several options are available for a study of the book Surprise the World, by Michael Frost. They include Tuesday mornings, Sunday mornings and Wednesday evenings.

Faith UMC prepares and serves a community meal at Northeast UMC on the third Saturday of the month. The next dates are February 17 and March 17.
