About St. Johnís United Church of
In 1856 a group of German immigrants who had settled in Wheeling Township established the first German Evangelical Church to be founded in the state of Minnesota. The roots of their (and our) Evangelical heritage
can be traced back to the Protestant Reformation and the works of Martin
Luther, John Calvin, and Ulrich Zwingli.
We are a welcoming church family with a variety of backgrounds. We
respect our traditions and our past while we embrace the future.
We believe that the pilgrimage of faith is both an individual and a
communal experience and that the growth of each is interrelated and dependent
upon the other.
The United Church of Christ is a non-hierarchical, progressive denomination
committed to the unity of all Christians. With a rich history tying faith
to social justice, the UCC continues to challenge its members to explore
cutting edge theology and service to the world. For more information
