Linden Hills UCC is a faith community that welcomes all couples regardless of church membership. As an Open and Affirming United Church of Christ congregation, this church provides a setting for weddings regardless of
sexual orientation, and is also open to ecumenical or interfaith marriage ceremonies. (open and affirming statement.)


Our location in the Linden Hills neighborhood and close proximity to Lake Harriet and Calhoun make this a great place to take your vows.

Pastor, Eliot Howard, has been at LHUCC for 15 years and has performed numerous ceremonies. He really likes to get to know a couple to make sure their ceremony honors their wishes and attends to their needs.


We have an experienced music staff as well. Our music director, Christine Anderson, is an accomplished soloist, and we are fortunate to have two wonderful pianists/organists, Mary Kay Duquette and Julie Champ. All are able to help you plan what music will best compliment your ceremony and welcome the opportunity to go through selections with you. A CD of vocal solos is also available for ideas.
