About Us

Located in Southwest Minneapolis, Linden Hills United Church of Christ is a congregation of 300 adults and children.  As Christians, our worship, faith development and service to the community are grounded in our relationship to God, Jesus Christ, and The Holy Spirit.  A progressive approach to theology encourages a freedom of conscience, and latitude of belief.  Since its founding in 1902 Linden Hills Church has sought to live out a core principle:


"Not to be served, but to serve."


In declaring ourselves an Open and Affirming Church, we celebrate the sacredness of every person as a child of God. We welcome lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people to join in the full life and ministry of our congregation in the same spirit and manner we accept all new members.



We worship at 10:00 a.m.   The structure of the worship service tends toward the traditional with a tone that is informal.  Our worship is rooted in faith as well as issues of social justice.





We strive to make our city, state, nation and world more just and humane.  Our advocacy takes place in partnership with many organizations and our service includes  preparing meals for people in need and the construction of affordable homes.




Faith Formation

There are many opportunities for adults and children to explore faith, spirituality and Christianity.  We frequently host guest speakers to provide educational opportunities for our members and the larger community.
