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.
 
 

Dawn of Redeeming Grace

Dear Friends,
 
With the dawn of Redeeming Grace.
What do those three words mean – dawn, redeeming, grace?
 
Dawn
In the movie, An American Tail: Fievel Goes West, in the closing scene, the old bloodhound sheriff, Wylie Burp, says to young Fivel as he hands him his badge, “One man’s sunset is another man’s dawn.”
 
Dawn is a beginning – a new start.
I’m not a morning person, but what I do love about getting up early is the opportunity to witness the dawn.
This is a great children’s book, written and illustrated by first-grade students about the tragic attack on our country on September 11, 2001. It’s called September 12th: We Knew Everything Would Be All Right. The book ends, saying, “We knew everything would be all right because the stars and moon came out and America went to sleep. And the next morning the sun (Son) came up again. (NOT) The End.”
