About Us

Seward Church

Located at 21st and Franklin just south of downtown Minneapolis, we aim to love our culturally diverse neighborhood.

We value our church family and invest in this through monthly "family meetings" where we all share a meal and news. We also have regular small groups throughout the year.

Along with our main service we also have Seeds, children's Sunday school, and Roots, our youth ministry
