The History of First Congregational

United Church of Christ, Mankato

Our church was founded 150 years ago, on August 28, 1870. The community of Mankato was still in its adolescence, just twelve-years-old and only recently incorporated as a city. On that first Sunday, service consisted of just 15 members, Christ-followers who wanted to worship and share God's extravagant love together. This is the spirit that we still hold to today, to be a diverse community of faith that seeks to love without limits and do the works of justice that God calls us to do.
