Pastor's Welcome

Welcome to First Congregational United Church of Christ in Mankato, MN. We are delighted that you have found us. I am privileged to serve as the Intentional Interim Minister. First Church has been a continuing presence in the Mankato community for over 150 years, providing hospitality and faithful witness. 


We encourage on-going faith formation with an active Sunday School and youth programs. We are an Open and Affirming congregation, welcoming into the full life and ministry of the church persons of all sexual orientations and gender identities. We have committed to be an Immigrant Welcoming congregation which provides hospitality to refugees and asylum seekers. We also have committed to be a Creation Justice congregation as we make the ministry of environmental justice an integral strand in the DNA of our faith practices and community.


Please join us in our worship services, either in person or on-line. Let us know if you would like to join us for on-line worship by calling our office at 507-387-6592 or sending an email to kato@mankatoucc.org . We look forward to having you join us.
