First Universalist Church of Minneapolis
Authored by Natalie Jacobson and Emily Perlman
From the outside, the First Universalist Church of Minneapolis just looks like another building on the narrow residential street in the Uptown neighborhood of Minneapolis. However, the big black and yellow "Black Lives Matter" sign hanging on the wall gives the building away as more than an office space.
When speaking to members of First Universalist, there is an emphasis on the "faith community" that threads throughout the religion practiced at the church. Congregants at First Universalist come from a variety of different religions and attend services for a variety of different reasons. Whether a congregant was a strict Catholic and came to First Universalist for its flexibility in religion, or a congregant grew up Unitarian Universalist and came to this church for its strong social justice programs, each congregant is welcome there.
The church's rich history gives way to a strong membership and following today. This website showcases some of the many programs held at First Universalist such as progressive religious education classes as well as mobilization around racial, social, and environmental justice.
We invite you to take a look around the website and learn about this unique Unitarian Universalist church, right in the city of Minneapolis.
