New Spirit UCC is a progressive Christian community committed to living Jesus’ commandment, “Love your neighbor as yourself.” We are united by our welcoming and affirming of all people in their identities of ethnicity, culture, gender identity, age, abilities, economic status, family structure, or sexuality. Our calling as individuals and as a community is to serve our local and world community with a joyous and generous spirit.
If you’re looking for a church home that is engaging, warm, and vibrant we hope you will join us for worship together in God’s love on Sunday mornings at 9:30 AM. In the summer from June 20th – August 1st, we worship on Wednesdays outdoors at 6:00 PM. This is a prayer-full party! Special guest preachers and musicians, BBQ, blankets on the grass, and Spirit amidst it all. In between services there’s a ton of church and community events we share in, and you can subscribe to our newsletter to stay connected.
Here you will find others who believe, “Faith is a journey, not a destination.” We gather as people from a diversity of spiritual roots: some of us grew up going to church, some come from no religious background, some belong to multi-religious and multi-cultural families. We practice of taking the Bible seriously, but not literally. Once a farm house, our church is tucked behind the Target in Savage, Minnesota on Quebec Ave. We have plenty of parking and our building is fully accessible for people of all abilities, including our bathrooms (all genders) and elevator.
We love having kids in worship and welcome their wiggles, giggles, and joyful noise-as-prayers. We have faith formation September-May for kids ages 5+, and nursery care available year round for infants – 5 year olds.
Faith-full and full of questions. Singles and couples. People of all ethnicities, cultures, and races. Youth and young adults. Families and empty-nesters. Queer, Gay, Trans, and straight. Elders and children. Transplants, and immigrants. Because of who you are, and where you are on life’s journey – you are welcome here – and make this Body of Christ more whole and perfect.
