Welcome to UBC

Welcome to University Baptist Church (UBC), adjacent to the University of Minnesota in historic Dinkytown. Throughout this website and at UBC, you will be able to see our intentional focus on inclusion, justice-seeking and peace-making.  We are intrigued and captured by the challenge and whimsey of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and seek to live out this Good News in our individual and collective lives.

Our mission at UBC is to be a loving and inclusive community seeking faith, joy and action nurtured by the biblical traditions, the teachings of Christ, and God's continuing revelation.



After receiving several calls and looking at the weather forecast, the planning team for tonight's multi-faith community Thanksgiving service have decided to cancel tonight's service. While we have looked forward to celebrating together, we think it is wiser to not have people driving in the dark during the forecasted heavy accumulation of snow.  We will likely use the same outline for next year's service--luckily, we already have that ready to go.  

 Thanks to our ushers, musicians and pie-wranglers who were all set for tonight's service.
 Stay safe out there and have a wonderful Thanksgiving.
 -Doug Donley
