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.
 
 

Unexpected Signs of Life

Dear Friends,
 
I shared in my sermon last Sunday an experience I had the previous day at Doris Brand’s funeral.
The experience reminded me of our loved one’s (and God’s) constant presence in our lives, even though they’ve gone before us.
 
I needed a hymnal to officiate the funeral with. Coming from a Lutheran system, I haven’t yet bought my own UMC hymnal 🙂
 
I grabbed a random hymnal from a random pew in the sanctuary. I opened the front cover to insert my notes and there, on the the “In Memory of … ” nameplate sticker, was the name “John Brand”, given in memory by “Doris Brand”.
 
I was amazed at the chances of that happening just prior to my officiating Doris’ funeral service. I then began to diminish the odds of that happening, thinking that maybe Doris had donated ALL the hymnals in memory of her husband John 🙂
