Welcome,

Child of God!

First United Methodist Church in Lindstrom is a welcoming, accepting, and authentic community of faith that is immediately experienced when visiting. 
 
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.
 
Please take a look around our website and Facebook page. We hope you will contact us if you have any questions.
 
 

The Community Keg

Dear Friends,
 
What a fulfilling worship experience I had on Sunday morning as celebrated the children in our congregation. It was Children’s Sabbath Sunday. We baptized little Blaine Lloyd, gave 3rd graders, Jackie and Luke, their Bibles, and rocked three little ones into our community of faith as part of our 96th annual cradle rocking ritual. It was powerful. I am thankful that Jesus reminded us to always welcome the children into our midst and be become like them in ways that demonstrate trust, humility, wonder and dependence. Thanks to all who helped make Sunday so special.
 
As we look ahead to this Sunday – Laity Sunday – First UMC members, Tom Ervasti and Tom Lundberg will be preaching and leading worship. What a gift these two will be to you all who worship on Sunday. My family and I will be out of town on Sunday, visiting colleges with our daughter, Annica, as she prepares to narrow down her school of choice. I thank Tom and Tom for their leadership and willingness to serve in this way.
 
I’ll be back in worship and preaching on Sunday, October 28 – Stewardship Sunday. A day you will be invited to make or increase your financial commitment to First UMC in order to continue to maintain our general operating needs while adding a new staff position for children and youth ministries and increasing pay for current staff. View the 2018 Stewardship Challenge here. This is an important challenge and decision for all at First UMC to be praying about and making. Do not decide on an amount you are or are not able to give without praying about it. It is crucial that we each ask, in prayer, that God’s will be done at this time and in this place.
 
To help illustrate the importance of Stewardship Sunday and the vision we hope to follow, I share this classic and timeless story with you.
