Welcome!

First United Methodist Church in Lindstrom is a welcoming, accepting, and authentic community of faith. 
 
Together 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.
 
 

No Time to Eat!

“There were so many people coming and going that Jesus and his disciples didn’t even have time to eat.” – Mark 6:30-31
 
“The house of my soul is too narrow for Thee to come in; let it be enlarged by Thee. It is is ruins. Do Thou restore it.” – Augustine
 
Dear Friends,
 
As I prepare for this coming Sunday and reflect on the preaching text (Mark 6:30-34; 53-56), I am feeling convicted. In the text, Jesus is teaching the importance of getting away to a quiet place to rest, pray, and be renewed. It was important then. It’s important now. 
 
How many of you are like my family and me, when it seems like our daily lives get so busy that they begin to spin out of control. Between my wife and I we are constantly juggling how we and/or our children will get to the right places at the right time. Balancing work and family is always a juggling act but, as Jesus reminds us in this text, an important one. For as Augustine wrote, we too might identify with his lament, “The house of my soul … is in ruins.” If that is the case, we too, can trust in the Lord to restore it.
