Looking For A Congregation To Visit In Minneapolis

I’ll be attending a symposium on metrology in the Minneapolis / St. Paul area from July 27th to August 2nd. The dates being what they are mean I will need to find a congregation so may attend the Divine Service where the Word is preached purely and the Sacraments are administered rightly. Does anyone have a suggestion?

I’ve been noticing that congregational websites are sometimes ambiguous or even misleading. Also, the fact that the nice lady answering the phone, who attends the UCC church down the street, only knows that Lutherans are able to meet payroll certainly makes finding a congregation to visit frustrating.

I remember one trip to Pascagoula MS; a receptionist said that while she was a loyal Southern Baptist these Lutherans were very nice folks (uh, that’s good to hear). While she didn’t know how they “worshiped”, upon looking at the Sunday bulletin she could tell that they used something call “page 15”. I was more than overjoyed with her answer.

The previous receptionist I talked to one town over informed me that if joined them on Sunday I would be treated to the pastor dressing up as John the Baptist to deliver the sermon. I guess it could’ve been worse; there could’ve been clowns or better yet liturgical dance clowns miming out the Our Father.

Anyhoo, back to the question, does anyone have any suggestions for a parish to visit?

University Lutheran Chapel is very good.
