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.

Dear Friends,
 
In January of 2007, The Washington Post videotaped the reactions of commuters at a D.C. Metro (subway) stop to the music of a violinist. The overwhelming majority of the 1000+ commuters were too busy to stop. A few did, briefly, and some of those threw a couple of bills into the violin case of the street performer. No big deal, just an ordinary day on the Metro. Except it wasn’t an ordinary day. The violinist wasn’t just another street performer; he was Joshua Bell, one of the world’s finest concert violinists, playing his multi-million dollar Stradivarius. Three days earlier he had filled Boston’s Symphony Hall with people paying $100/seat to hear him play similar pieces. Watch the video here.
 
The question the Post author and many others since have asked is simple: Have we been trained to recognize beauty outside the contexts we expect to encounter beauty? Or, to put it another way, can we recognize great music anywhere outside of a concert hall? I’d ask a similar question of us in the church. Can we detect God only when God is surrounded by stained-glass windows and organ music?” What do you think? Can we detect God only when we’re in church? Do you think we have a vision problem? Is God still present, but unrecognized, in all sorts of places? It’s one thing to encounter God in church, or even in your home with your family. But do you also see God in the parking lot, in the grocery store, in the long check-out lines at the mall, in schools and offices, on the highway, by the side of the road, in the mundane and everyday events of life? How can you begin to see God in those places?
