Back Next Union Congregational Church, Elk River, Minnesota  


26 June 1988:  "Elk River Union Congregational Church, United Church of Christ is an
Open and Affirming, Earthwise, Progressive Christian Congregation nestled in the quiet streets of historic
downtown Elk River. We welcome into our community all people of every age, race, nationality, sexual
orientation, gender identity and expression, economic and social status, ability, faith background, and family structure."

The church was founded in 1875 as an independent Protestant congregational church.  It became part of the United
Church of Christ in 1957, one year after my wife and I where married there.
