All Are Welcome.

No Exceptions.

You are a

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.

Drawing Lines. Erasing Lines.

Dear Friends,
 
In the midst of my sermon preparation for this coming Sunday (2/17) this cartoon drawing showed up on my Twitter feed. As I quickly scrolled past it, I was drawn to go back up and take a longer, closer look at it. I invite you to do the same now. Take a long, close look at this drawing and determine in your heart and mind what the artist is intending to communicate.
 
On the surface, I think we would all agree that the message is that Jesus erases the lines of division that we continue to draw. I’ve heard it said before that every time we draw a line between us and others, Jesus is always on the other side of that line. In the case of this drawing, he not only is on the other side of our lines, but he also is erasing our lines.
 
I discovered this drawing at the perfect time, as I was studying this Sunday’s preaching text from Luke 6:17-26. In this text Jesus is coming down from the mountain and addressing those who were gathered and awaiting his arrival. He immediately began to teach:
 
“Blessed are you who are poor, for yours is the Kingdom of God. Blessed are you who are hungry now, for you will be filled. Blessed are you who weep now, for you will laugh. Blessed are you when people hate you, for your reward will be great in heaven.”
