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.
 
 

God Claims Me!

Dear Friends,
 
The philosopher Immanuel Kant’s lifelong research revolved around four questions: “Who am I?” “What am I?” “What can I do?” “What can I know?” The only unanswerable question of those four, he said was: “Who am I?”
 
“Who am I?”
In the Bible, Moses asked it, David asked it, Jeremiah asked it. I would think Mary asked herself that question from time to time as she came to terms with being the mother of our Lord.  Throughout the ages people have asked the question, “Who am I?” Many people do not know who they are or why they exist. They try all sorts of philosophies, treatments, religions and sometimes even drugs to find themselves. It’s the one question we all keep coming back to – that we all want the answer to – in the big picture – in this big world – who am I, in the midst of it? That’s the question we focus on this morning as we kick off our five-week series called, “Claimed: Wildly Loved by God.”
 
While I’m in no position to debate the intricacies of life and life’s meaning with a world renowned philosopher like Immanuel Kant, I am pretty certain, that what he believed to be an unanswerable question, is answered through faith in God and Christ Jesus. Let’s look a bit closer to find out why.
