Welcome to New Spirit!
If you’re looking for a church home or just a warm and welcoming place to be once in a while, please join us on a Sunday morning. Once a farm house, our church is tucked behind Target in Savage. We have plenty of parking and our building is totally accessible, including bathrooms and an elevator. We have a paid staff for nursery care.
Come inside. On Sundays at 9:30 am you’ll find a not-so-formal worship style. We have comfortable chairs and an atmosphere that invites questioning. There are lots of friendly people, Sunday school for the children, great singing and plenty of hot coffee, usually accompanied by yummy treats.
Not sure what you believe or whether or not you believe anything? You will find here others with similar stories. “Faith is a journey, not a destination.” We live that perspective. Members come from many denominations, some have no religious background, and we have active friends of other faiths. Our denomination’s idea of a “Still Speaking God” affirms our practice of taking the Bible seriously, but not literally. As an Open & Affirming congregation we welcome people and families of all sexual orientations and gender identities. As best we can, we try to reach out to the community and the world, to be God’s people in the way of Jesus Christ by loving others, serving those most vulnerable and working for justice and peace. We also like to have fun!
Singles and couples. Families and empty-nesters. Gay, trans and straight. Elders and children. Norwegian-Americans, native Kenyans and East or West Coast transplants: you are welcome here.
Rev. Rosemary Rocha, Interim Pastor
