Champlin United Methodist Church
921 Downs Road, Champlin, MN 55316
Neighbors know us as the church of the rainbow doors. Located just off Highway 169 in its namesake suburb, Champlin United Methodist Church sends a vibrant message that all are welcome with its exterior display of seven painted doors.
Those doors have been an advertisement for the church, drawing new members to this progressive Christian community of about 140 members. “We thought that was really symbolic of the church’s ethos and atmosphere of really accepting everyone,” said Keith and Melissa Schad, members since 2018. “Everyone is so kind, open, and accepting. It’s just a feeling that you’re ok with who you are and coming there as you are.”
Champlin UMC has formally been a reconciling congregation since Mother’s Day 2019. Our guiding principles capture our commitment to that inclusivity but also to social justice, life-long learning, following Jesus, pursuing peace, and protecting and restoring all of God’s creation.
Our worship services blend the traditional and the contemporary in both presentation and music. We appreciate and welcome people of all generations and diverse cultural and different theological viewpoints. We invite ALL people to meet the living Christ and the love of God in worship.
