We are progressive Christian community that gathers to listen, speak and act in a spirit of compassion, justice and stewardship. In 1987, we were the first United Church of Christ congregation in Minnesota to fully affirm queer folks. Wherever you are on your journey of life and faith, you are welcome!
We are a congregation that worships, prays, learns, and serves together. Our Welcoming Statement is included every Sunday in our worship bulletin and that statement includes welcoming LGBTQIA+ people. In the past, we have had interns serve our congregation as part of their training to become a pastor. Of the four interns we have had, 3 identified as queer. We are the only congregation in the Southwestern Minnesota Synod that is a Reconciling in Christ congregation.
Bringing our values to life is a core part of our congregation’s mission and vision. We seek not only personal transformation but also a transformation of the world around us, with our foundation being the worth and dignity of every person and the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part.
Help Helps! We offer mental, chemical, and sexual health services for LGBTQIA+ people, people living with HIV, and folks from communities that historically and currently face barriers to behavioral health support.
Lake Fellowship is an open-minded, open-hearted spiritual community located in a small A-frame building tucked into the woods in Shorewood, Minnesota. Our Sunday programs are an eclectic mixture of spirituality, philosophy, politics, social issues, and music, presented by outside speakers and Fellowship members.

We meet in person and virtually at 10:30am Sundays from the week after Labor Day to the week before Memorial Day.
