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.
 
 

Because of This … I Rejoice!

Dear Friends,
 
Lent is my favorite season of the Church year. It begins this year on Ash Wednesday, March 6.
I like the opportunity it presents each year to focus on the the wilderness journey of life that leads to the empty 
tomb of victory and triumph on Easter.This is an important opportunity for us not only once a year, but daily, as we place our hope and trust in the new life of resurrection.
 
Typically, Lent has been thought of as a season of self-sacrifice and discipline that sounds, to many Christians, like a list of spiritual chores. Lenten disciplines become the spiritual equivalent of New Year’s resolutions to lose weight, be healthier, or practice better money management. These promises are easily made and often quickly broken, leaving us feeling like we do not measure up. This is not an accurate or healthy view of the Lenten season.
 
But what if we approached Lent differently? What if we approached Lent with a spirit of joy instead of lament or despair?
