The congregation of the River Falls United Methodist Church has voted overwhelmingly to change its name to Spirit of Grace.
The church, which has been located on the corner of Second and Walnut Streets since 1857, has chosen this new name to highlight the mission and values of the congregation, rather than its geographic location or denominational affiliation.
Spirit of Grace is a Reconciling Congregation which holds dear to the belief that all persons are of sacred worth and are beloved children of God. Our community affirms the teachings of Christ by committing itself to justice, love, equality and compassion. We welcome all persons of any age, race, gender identity, ethnic origin, economic reality, family status, sexual orientation, diverse ability, faith history or social standing as full and equal participants in the life and work of this faith community.
