Child of God!

First United Methodist Church in Lindstrom is a welcoming, accepting, and authentic community of faith. 
 
Together at First UMC we grow as disciples of Jesus trusting in His forgiving grace and endless mercy. Our goal is to always strive to stay faithful to the three scriptural imperatives of the United Methodist Church: 1.) To Grow in Love toward God and Neighbor (Matt. 22:37-40), 2.) To Reach New People (Matt. 28:19-20), and 3.) To Heal a Broken World (Luke 4:16-21).
 
To stay true to these, is to stay true to Jesus and his life and ministry.
 

God loves all people.

So do we.

Please take a look around our website and Facebook page. We hope you will contact us if you have any questions.
 
 

A Lenten Journey of Stones

Dear Friends,

The season of Lent is a special time for Christians. 

Every year, these holy, forty days, are set aside for us to reflect on our own brokenness and need for confession, repentance, and forgiveness. The season concludes on Easter Sunday, following Holy Week, with the assurance that, in Christ’s suffering, death, and resurrection, we have been given the promise of new life eternal. This year we will have a powerful opportunity to experience this evolution of emotion, reflection, acceptance, and celebration as we embark together on a “Journey of Stones.”

My weekly sermons will be based on scriptural references to stones that will call us to prayerful and honest repentance. Weekly themes will include: Written in Stone, Rejected Stones, Sticks and Stones, Hearts of Stone, Upon this Rock, Crying Stones, The Final Stone, Stones to Bread, and finally, The White Stone. See the whole schedule and assigned scripture readings here.

To aid us in our reflection and worship experience, each Sunday you will be invited to come forward during the hymn following the sermon, and place a stone at the foot of the cross, as a symbol of our sin and all those things which separate us from God. You can bring your own stones or pick one up outside the sanctuary from some that will be provided.
