About Us

Elk River Union Congregational Church, United Church of Christ

is an Open and Affirming, Earthwise, Progressive Christian Congregation nestled in the quiet streets of historic downtown Elk River. We welcome into our community all people of every age, race, nationality, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, economic and social status, ability, faith background, and family structure. No matter who you are or where you are on life's journey, you are welcome here.

It is our deep hope that all who join us will be drawn closer to God, find strength and meaning in their lives, and discover mutually supportive friends in Christ.

 

We are committed to hearing God's ancient story anew in our lives and in the world today. We are seekers who are open to mystery, questions and fresh perspectives. Faith is a lifetime journey and open-hearted education guides our way.
