Wherever you are on life’s journey, you are welcome here.

We are an open and welcoming community of faith that believes that each person, created in the image of God, holds a piece of the truth. Therefore we respect each person’s unique spiritual journey. We invite you to experience the difference that religious freedom in a caring community can make in that journey.

A Warm Welcome

Welcome to Friedens United Church of Christ in Norwood Young America, Minnesota. We worship with Church of Peace United Church of Christ in Glencoe. We hope this website will give you a sense of who we are, how we live out our faith, and the opportunities for learning, growth, relationships and service that our church offers.


We exist to lead people into a growing relationship with Jesus. We work to follow Jesus’ example to love one another as he loves us so that everyone will know that we are his disciples. We enjoy one another's company. We strive to live in right relationship with each other, our neighbors near and far, and the natural world. We work for justice, peace and reconciliation.



See our calendar below for worship locations. Please join us this coming Sunday.
