SpringHouse Ministry Center is a new way to be church in the 21st century. It is a way in which congregations can become more environmentally & financial stable, allowing them to be free to do God’s mission in new ways. SpringHouse is also a space where the wider community can meet, renew, grow and work for wholeness. We are a partnership of three local congregations: First Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), Salem English Lutheran Church and Lyndale United Church of Christ. Each congregation worships in its own way and together we share common ministries such as education and mission. More information at http://www.springhousemn.org/
