Father Kris McKushy Phone#218-828-7738 The Brainerd Area Catholic Churches exist to make God known, loved and served. Our parishes endeavor to make the Sunday celebration of the Eucharist the summit and center of our worship of God. With the psalmist we ask: “What return will I make to the Lord for all He has given me?,” and so we share God’s many blessings to us through faith formation programs for all ages, and a deep concern for the poor and needy of our community and the wider world. We treasure all human life from conception till natural death. The Brainerd Area Catholic Churches include the parishes of All Saints Catholic Church, St. Andrews Catholic Church, St. Francis Catholic Church, St. Mathias Catholic Church, and St. Thomas of the Pines Catholic Church.

Park United Methodist Church

Christ's ministry is an outreach of love. We are all called to minister wherever Christ would have us work to heal and free others. United Methodists believe in God's saving grace, which means the unearned and loving action of God in our daily lives. And that through faith we are saved through Jesus Christ. In spite of suffering, violence, and evil in the world, we assert that God's grace exists everywhere. Despite any circumstance, we can always have a new life with a just and loving God. The reign of God is both a present and a future reality. Park United Methodist is located in North Brainerd. They have a sister chapel located in Baxter, Light of the Lakes Methodist Church.

“But after he had considered this, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, "Joseph son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary home as your wife, because what is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit. She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins.” (Matthew 1:20-21) (Read by Max McLean.

St. Paul's Episcopal Church

Episcopal missionaries came to Minnesota Territory in the 1850’s, working up the Mississippi River and reaching out to local Native Americans and pioneer settlers alike. In 1871 the Rev. Joseph Gilfillan arrived in Brainerd, a “wild and wooly” railroad and logging center of about 400 persons, and made the rounds of saloons, hotels and boarding houses to invite one and all to church. For a time services were held in the pine woods of what is now Gregory Park, until the first St. Paul’s Church was built. That wooden structure was replaced in 1931 by the current stone church; an education and office wing in matching stone was added in 1988. For more than a century St. Paul’s has welcomed rich and poor of all races, backgrounds, and circumstances to take part in our ministries and outreach programs, solemn worship and gala celebrations. We invite you to make St. Paul’s your Brainerd Lakes Area church home.
