Welcome to University Baptist Church (UBC), adjacent to the University of Minnesota in historic Dinkytown. Throughout this website and at UBC, you will be able to see our intentional focus on inclusion, justice-seeking and peace-making.  We are intrigued and captured by the challenge and whimsey of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and seek to live out this Good News in our individual and collective lives.

The Sign Says


See the press release

UBC has received a grant to improve water flow from our building, filtering it naturally into the ground instead of flowing to the storm sewers (and our basement). This grant from the Mississippi Watershed Management Organization (MWMO) is the culmination of many months of hard work by Barb Patterson (a Water Steward and Sacred Harp singer), the UBC garden team, and several others.  

The project will install rain gardens, channel drains, and enhance native plantings on our little Dinkytown corner oasis.  It will also have educational signs that can encourage people to be better environmental stewards. We are awaiting word on a companion grant from Hennepin County to help us divert water away from the window well area behind the swing.  We’ll begin the physical work on this project in the coming months.

This will be an educational and land stewardship partnership with UBC, the Twin Cities Sacred Harp Community, GAIA Democratic School, St. Lawrence Catholic Church, First Congregational Church, University Lutheran Church of Hope and the Marcy-Holmes Neighborhood Association. 


We look forward to taking a more active part in stormwater management and encouraging others to be better stewards of the earth we share.
