All Are Welcome.

No Exceptions.

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.
 
 

Mutual Conversation and Consolation

Dear Friends,
 
In my previous blog entry entitled, “Good Listening = Good Conversation” I prepared our members for an upcoming congregational conversation that was to be (and was) held on Sunday, March 17 following our morning worship service regarding the February meeting of the Special General Conference of the United Methodist Church that was held in St. Louis. The Special General Conference voted to continue and strengthen the UMC’s ban on same-sex marriage and ordination of LGBTQ individuals within the denomination.
 
The title of my previous blog entry proved to be true at our meeting yesterday. I am pleased to affirm the nearly 100 members of our congregation who were able to attend, in their good listening skills, which in turn, led to the important, fruitful, respectful, and good conversation that I was hoping and praying for. I dare say everyone present at that meeting left feeling listened to, encouraged, and fulfilled. God’s presence in the Holy Spirit was felt by all because of how well we listened to and encouraged one another, despite differing theological and scriptural understandings.
