The Beloved United Methodist Church

The Beloved Church is growing what Rev. Dr. King called the “Beloved Community.”

You are invited into a movement of justice, joy and peace through the Holy Spirit.

Join us in person or on Facebook or YouTube for every Sunday at 10:00 am. We are at 1965 Sherwood Avenue, in St. Paul.

Throughout September and October we're reflecting on questions Rachel Held Evans raised in her book, Inspired.

If the Bible isn't a science book or an instruction manual, what is it? What do people mean when they say the Bible is inspired?

Join us for fun, engaging, casual and inclusive worship.

After School Programming

The McVay Youth Partnership (Youth-VOICE) offers a safe, fun place for middle and high school students. Students spend time with their friends creating art, music, drama and can receive help with their homework. Service projects and presentations by local leaders enable students to explore the community.

The McVay Youth Partnership is staffed by experienced and energetic McVay Fellows, Associates, Specialty Associates, and Interns. All fellows, associates, and interns receive training and are supported by Hamline University staff.

The program is free and open to all students in grades 5-12 who are willing to follow these basic rules: Respect yourself; Respect others; Respect property

The McVay Youth Partnership is a university-church partnership funded by a generous endowment from the McVay Family Foundation. It embodies the mission and vision of Hamline University and is officed through the Wesley Center.

Programming occurs on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 3:30-6PM at The Beloved Church. Programming for the 2022-2023 school year will begin Monday, September 19

Being safe: Church in a Pandemic

In the United Methodist Tradition, our first rule is, "First, do no harm." If you have a covid exposure please isolate 5 days and then get tested. If you test positive, please isolate until your doctor says it is safe to not do so. Please continue to wear masks (KN95s or double masking is best).

You can join us in worship in person or online via our Facebook page or YouTube channel.
