Free Grace United Downtown Minneapolis Sunday service is a church with a heart for the broken, homeless, and addicted. One week at a time we bring hope and freedom to the community that surrounds us with food/clothing distribution, recovery meetings, Bible studies, and weekend services.
We serve a meal before our Saturday service and after each of our Sunday services.
After parking in the lot next to the building, come in and ask for a free parking pass.
Saturdays @ 5 pm
Sundays @ 10:30 am & 4 pm
Each congregation of Free Grace United is a distinct local church. They vary in size, demographics, and cultural aesthetics. Each has its own story, its own pastors, and its own ministries. In deciding which congregation to join, we encourage you to start by visiting the one closest to you.
FREE GRACE KIDS
Each of our churches are unique, which means that each church offers something a little different for kids during our weekend services. As our churches grow, we develop a church experience especially for them! (Read about Kids Church here.) Our mission at every church is to see your kids cross the line of faith and follow Jesus!
Our Sunday services offer Kids Church for kids up to grade 5.
We use Bible-based curriculum that includes age-appropriate discipleship through teaching, games, and crafts. We have a special focus on tangible aspects of discipleship – helping kids navigate their Bibles, pray in groups, use their gifts to serve others, build friendships, and share their faith – all while teaching the Gospel every week.
Our Saturday services here are family-friendly – meaning that children of all ages get to join their grown-ups for “big church”! Kids benefit greatly from watching the adults in their lives worship Jesus. We provide a kid version of the sermon notes with activities to help little brains stay focused. Here are some suggestions of other things you can do to help your kids stay engaged:
- Have your child bring his/her own Bible, and help look up the Scripture in the sermon
- Encourage them to sing or dance during worship songs
- Coloring items
- Small, non-electronic toys for little ones (cars, puzzles, books)
- The Bible App for Kids and a pair of headphones
If your child gets wiggly or chatty, you can step into the lobby at any time to give him/her a break. You and your kids are welcome here!
