Mindekirken is located in the vibrant Phillips Neighborhood of Minneapolis. Amid a neighborhood that has seen waves of new immigrants since the very first Norwegians and Swedes who came to the area, Mindekirken has been a gathering place for Norwegians for 90 years and still holds services in Norwegian. For over 10 years Mindekirken has offered top quality, non-credit, adult-education style classes to a wide variety of students. These include younger students interested in modern Norway and wanting to learn Norwegian before a trip or time spent abroad, to adults connecting with their roots, to retired people refreshing the Norwegian they knew as a child, as well as  those looking to learn it for the first time. Our program offers classes for many skill levels.
