    Meet Our Muslim Neighbors

    An informal and informative discussion about Islam and the Muslim communities in the Lakes and Fargo-Moorhead areas. Instead of being fearful and anxious about Muslims and their beliefs, why not learn about them and their religion and ask questions first hand? This will be a very friendly, very informative conversation. Join us at M-State, Detroit Lakes, 900 MN-34

    Minnesota Conference of the United Church of Christ is one of the many sponsors for this event.

Who We Are

The Minnesota Conference United Church of Christ (UCC) is the state-wide organization that equips UCC pastors to lead, supports congregations, engages in transformative mission and witness, and guides youth and adults on their faith journeys.

We are welcoming of all people, regardless of race, age, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, or political beliefs. Learn more about our Mission, Values & Priorities and What We Believe. You can also Find a UCC Church.

The national United Church of Christ is a diverse and welcoming community of 1.1 million members across the U.S. We are forward-thinking and we are a church of “firsts.” We were the first Protestant denomination to ordain an African American pastor (1785), a woman pastor (1853), and a gay pastor (1972).

We advocate for justice and peace, embrace innovation, and offer extravagant hospitality to all who seek a genuine faith community. Whoever you are, wherever you are on life’s journey, we welcome you!
