Macalester Plymouth United Church is a vibrant faith community in St. Paul, Minnesota next door to Macalester College.
We do not claim to have all the answers but, together, we strive to ask the right questions as we seek God’s will in our lives.
We are mid-sized: Small enough to be friendly, large enough to be vibrant and diverse.
We believe that God calls us into the church, binding us in covenant with faithful people of all ages, races, genders and sexual orientations.
We support each other in Christian love and concern. We reach out to those in greatest need locally and globally with our time, talents and resources. As a congregation, we are known for our actions that support social justice across a wide span of long-range and immediate issues.
In and through our church, we strive daily to bear witness to Christ, coming together to celebrate, explore & live our faith.
Throughout our history, we have grown through the uniting of congregations of the Presbyterian Church (USA) and the United Church of Christ. Macalester Plymouth is an Open and Affirming and More Light congregation which is church jargon for being welcoming of the GLBT community. We are also a Just Peace church, committed to working towards Peace with Justice. And, most recently, we were certified by the PCUSA to be an Earth Care Congregation, committed to the integration of environmental practices and thinking into all aspects of our congregational life.
On October 15, 2015, the congregation adopted the Move To Amend Resolution.
