Who We Are: Genuine, Inspiring, Caring

Our community is focused on living out our faith and not just sitting on the sidelines.  Our signature ministry is Manna Market, celebrated every Tuesday, where we get real with people in neighborhood.  We want to be genuine, caring, and inspiring to everyone who comes through our doors.

Join us Sundays at 10:30 AM as we take the next step together in desiring to be more like Jesus.

A Little History

Fridley Covenant Church (originally named Community Covenant Church) had its beginning when members of Salem Covenant Church in New Brighton moved to Fridley and felt the need of a neighborhood Covenant church. On Sunday, May 15, 1955, the first Sunday school session and morning worship service were held in the old Hayes School, which is still standing on Mississippi St. in Fridley.

In 2004, Fridley became one of the first “revitalization projects” of the Northwest Conference (NWC).  The agreement was that Fridley Covenant Church, averaging 40 in attendance at the time, would receive Conference financial aid and take on the pastor of the NWC’s choosing, as well as provide coaching and support. The NWC chose our current Pastor, Mark Ellingson.

Church Governance

We are an independent congregation.  We receive help and support from the Evangelical Covenant Church, but we choose our own pastor(s) and other church leaders.  We have a leadership council (similar to a board of elders) that sets the direction of our church and oversees the spiritual health of the community.
