Worship With Us In-Person & ONLINE

 
We are worshipping in-person every Sunday at 9am. Worship continues to be livestreamed on our church Facebook page at 9:00am Sunday mornings and available here on our website to view at any time during the week.
 

As followers of Jesus Christ, we will proclaim the message of God’s kingdom and bring hope to a hurting world beginning in Chisago County. 

 
The mission of the Church is to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world. Local churches and extension ministries of the Church provide the most significant arenas through which disciple-making occurs.

First United Methodist Church – Core Values

 

Humility

One of the most important virtues in our church. The ability to see our own need for increased maturity, learning and personal development allows the church to grow as a community.

Proverbs 11:2: When pride comes, then comes disgrace, but with humility comes wisdom.

 

Gratitude

Being grateful and appreciative towards others is a way to show that you value other people. Thankfulness alone is just a feeling. However, building upon that feeling, and showing gratitude necessitates action. Gratitude requires us to understand the role others play in our lives.

1 Thessalonians 5:11: Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing.

 

Love & Respect

Love and respect are the building block of trust and wellbeing in relationships. Love drives connection, and results in sacrifice and support in good times and bad. Respect is important in our congregation because it contributes to increased involvement, reduces stress, improves sharing and overall satisfaction.
 
1 Peter 3:8: Finally, all of you, be like-minded, be sympathetic, love one another, be compassionate and humble.
 

Intentional Conflict Management (Matthew 18)– Implementing Christ’s plan for resolving congregational differences is a requirement. Doing so is a priority if our congregation desires to provide a safe place for people to work and worship.

 
Matthew 18:15:“If your brother or sister sins, go and point out their fault, just between the two of you. If they listen to you, you have won them over. But if they will not listen, take one or two others along, so that ‘every matter may be established by the testimony of two or three witnesses.’ If they still refuse to listen, tell it to the church; and if they refuse to listen even to the church, treat them as you would a pagan or a tax collector.

 

Trust

Trust requires the congregation to be vulnerable and courageous with each other. To reward trust requires congregational leadership to act in a responsible way that is in the best interests of the entire congregation. Trust is crucial for us to feel safe with each other.

 Ephesians 6:7: Work with enthusiasm, as though you were working for the Lord rather than for people.

 

Community Outreach/Connection

Involvement/outreach helps our church avoid being an ingrown “club”. When the congregation uses its resources to help the community around itself, this supports a strong foundation, and builds structure that welcomes people to the church. Connection is having a willingness to share, contribute, help with each other. This is important in building healthy, happy, and fulfilling relationships in the church.

Hebrews 13:16 – Don’t forget to do good and to share what you have because God is pleased with these kinds of sacrifices.

 

Disciple Making

Disciple making is the business of the Church. Having a strategic plan to help children, youth and adults come to faith in Christ, grow as disciples, develop within ministry, and then mentor women and men for leadership is fundamental to any successful congregation.

Mark 16:15: He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.
