The church with the really big door


Welcome to Spirit Garage-Thanks for checking us out! You can find us IRL at the Hook and Ladder Theater at 3010 Minnehaha Avenue in the Longfellow neighborhood on Sunday mornings at 10:30, online on Twitter and Periscope, and at various other places around town throughout the week.

Our worship is casual. Our community includes people who are under-churched, over-churched and never-churched, and everything in between. Some have fervent beliefs and some have all kinds of doubts. Some were raised in a traditional church and some were not. There are some kids and parents, some single people, and some couples of various kinds. Some of our folks are sober and some are not. Whoever you are and wherever you come from, you are welcome here. We like to say “there’s no normal here” and we live into that pretty well.

Take a look around our website to learn more about the worship, music, community and ethos of Spirit Garage.

COVID-19 Response from Spirit Garage

In order to help prevent the spread/flatten the curve of COVID-19, Worship will be online for the next eight weeks, or until we've been given information that gatherings are okay again.

You can tune in by going to at about 10:30 on Sunday morning, and there we will be, bringing you the tunes, prayers, sermon, etc. Say hi in the chat space once you get there!

Sing along! Pray along! Yell back at me as much as you want while I preach and while you eat pancakes in bed. You’ll have to make your own breakfast, and we’ll certainly miss the fellowship. And when we all get to get together again IRL, it will be awesome!

Read the weekly email and check social media and the website for how other events will happen.
