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.
 

 

An Attitude of Gratitude

Dear Friends,
 
Some thoughts on this Thanksgiving Eve, 2018.
 
The Apostle Paul, shared these words with his beloved Philippian congregation: “Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, Rejoice.” What I like about about these familiar words of Paul’s is that he invites us to rejoice – another way, I think, of saying “give thanks” – always – when things are going well and not so well, when life seems rich and blessings abundant, and when they seem scarce. Paul continues, saying, “Do not worry about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God” (Phil. 4:4,6).
 
His words remind us that gratitude is as much an attitude as it is an emotion. Gratitude, that is, can arise from a determined commitment to see the blessings of this life. An attitude of gratitude happens by way of noticing and focusing on what is good in our families, in our communities, and in our world. An attitude of gratitude positively changes the way we see the world around us.
 
This TED Talk by Tania Luna gives a powerful example of this perspective.
