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.
 
 

Up From the Ashes, Beauty Will Rise!

Dear Friends,
 
I am writing this on the Tuesday of Holy Week.
My heart and mind are balancing delicately somewhere between Palm/Passion Sunday and Easter. I was moved again, as I always am, as I read for you last Sunday the passion narrative of our Lord from Mark’s gospel. In my sermon that morning I pointed out the “obvious and intended tension” that was in the air as we worshiped. Both the triumph and the tragedy of Jesus’ life are necessary in order to fully embrace the promise of the resurrection which comes on Easter.

Notre Dame Cathedral Burns During Holy Week

I’m feeling that tension still as I prepare my sermons for Maundy Thursday and Easter Sunday morning.
 
I know to expect this tension every year in Holy Week as I strive to most effectively help you experience the events leading up to the resurrection in a new way. However, what I wasn’t expecting to add to that holy tension this year, was the burning of the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris, France.
