Directions to services: Newport congregation

We share meeting space with the Newport United Methodist Church, approximately 7 miles southeast of downtown St. Paul.  This is near the southeast corner of the Twin Cities, near where I-494 crosses the Mississippi River over the Wakota Bridge. At the east end of the Wakota bridge is the exit for 61 South. At this exit, you are within a mile of the church.
