Many of us have been struggling with the recent decisions of the global UMC. ( One way people are responding is to center the conversation around the voices of people within the GLBTQAI+ community and people of color so that a new movement can grow with people instead of “for” them. It’s called “Our Movement Forward” and is coming to Minneapolis in May!


First United Methodist Church
of the St. Cloud Region
is located on Pine Cone Road South
in Sartell, Minnesota.

In the Bible Jesus is very clear that we are to love God with all our heart, mind, and strength, and to love our neighbor as ourself. You can’t love God without loving your neighbor; you can’t love your neighbor without loving God! Because of this, at First UMC, we believe that we are called to put love first in our lives and to live out of a center of love. Unfortunately, our world doesn’t always make that easy, and much of our formation as humans in this world has taught us the opposite. So in order to put love first, we have to practice. First UMC is committed to practicing and developing our love first skills as we grow in relationship to God and as a disciple of Jesus.
