A true community church
Resurrection United Methodist Church of Hastings is located in the heart of the community at 615 West 15th Hastings, MN, across from Pioneer Park. Our building is used free of charge by various groups nearly seven days each week, including Cub Scouts, Girls Scouts, Brownies, Moms Group, Homeschoolers Coop, Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous, Gamblers Anonymous, and a Community Dinner open to the public and served the 4th and 5th Thursday of each month (when there’s a fifth Thursday.)
Our roots run deep. In 1854, a circuit-riding preacher arrived to find a dozen families eager to start a church. By 1861, the congregation of 161 members built a church building on the corner of 5th and Vermillion Streets, which was later moved to 8th and Vermillion where it still stands today. When the congregation outgrew that building in 1959, Resurrection moved to its current location at the corner of Maple and 15th Street across from Pioneer Park, where continued growth has resulted in several expansions to the facility. In 2016, we celebrated our 160th birthday as a church.
