Meet the Pastor

Hello, and welcome to First Congregational UCC of Anoka!

This is an exciting time to be part of this beloved congregation! – where:

relationships are born, nurtured and deepened;

 faith is grown by questioning standing assumptions;

 and God is experienced in the movement of the Spirit through every facet of daily life. 

When you become a member of this faith community, you become a shaper of its future!
