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.
 
 

For Doris, And All the Saints – We Give Thanks.

Dear Friends,
 
First of all – a note of sadness to share. Our dear friend and eldest member of our church, Doris Brand, peacefully passed away yesterday morning. Doris was 103 years old. I have had many visits with Doris in my short time here as your pastor and I have treasured each one of them. She was a person of grace and love, as you know. We look forward to celebrating her life on Saturday, November 10. Click here to read more.
 
Secondly, this coming Sunday is All Saints Sunday in the church year. Doris is now among the saints we will remember. We look forward to remembering and honoring her and all the saints who have gone before us during worship. After communion, worshipers will have the opportunity to light a tea light candle in memory of a loved one who has passed away. This can be a moving experience for worshipers and one that I expect many will appreciate. 
 
Also, as we approach All Saints Sunday, please take time to also remember those innocents in our nation and world who are senselessly killed based solely on race or religion or often for no apparent reason at all. What happened to the Jewish community in Pittsburgh, unfortunately, is only the latest reminder of our need to pray fervently for our broken world. You and I, as Christians who believe in the love of Jesus, have the heavy responsibility of praying for our world and of standing up for the injustices we see happening in our world. A book I’m reading now says it this way:
