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.
 
 

Humble Thyself

Dear Friends,
 
For years at Bible camp, on mission trips, at confirmation large group gatherings, in Sunday morning worship, and in the quiet of a small group gathered at our home, I’ve led and sung the song, “Humble Thyself.” The song reminds us from scripture to “humble thyself in the sight of the Lord … and He shall lift you up … higher and higher!” It’s always been a favorite song for many and a powerful song to experience the presence of God’s Holy Spirit while singing.
 
The scriptural reference for that song is from Luke 18:9-14. It’s a parable about prayer in which Jesus holds nothing back, beginning right away in verse nine, “To some who were confident of their own righteousness and looked down on everybody else, Jesus told this parable…” The parable then ends with verse 14, echoing the words of the song, “Anyone who exalts themselves will be humbled, and anyone who humbles themselves will be exalted (lifted up … higher and higher!)”
 
It’s amazing isn’t it, how seemingly, in all the years since Jesus told this parable, that not much has changed regarding how we act towards one another?
