Congregational Life

We find joy in one another and celebrate relationship throughout the year in a variety of ways. We gather to break bread, share activities and special events --some intergenerational and some age appropriate, and support and encourage one another through the ups and downs of life in this world.  


Here are a few of our on-going small groups: 


Saturday Breakfast Gatherings at a local hotspot: Men’s Group meets monthly at 8am and Women’s Group at 9am for conversation and connection.


Dinner Out is a once a month social gathering for all. Members and friends and friends of friends meet at a different restaurant each month in the Mankato area.  


Meals and Visitation: We seek always to remain in caring connection. In this spirit, we visit the homebound, prepare and deliver meals for members temporarily in need, and the Health Ministry Team, which is comprised of health professionals, coordinates member education and care activities.


Baptism Blankets and Prayer Shawls: We welcome the newest and care for the ill and eldest in our community with Baptism Blankets and Prayer Shawls made by members of First Church.


Spiritual Practice: All are welcome to join in prayer, mediation and spiritual practice groups.
