Somewhere to Begin

I know it is a New Year, a new day, a new you.  We stand on the cusp of all these things with such hope and then, well, it just wanes. The excitement, the energy, the commitment, and the hope gets drummed out of us.

Still, at NEUMC, we keep singing, we keep gathering, we keep opening our hearts, raising our voices, we keep trying--not because we are the be-all and the end-all, not because we have it all together, but because here we begin, again and again.

Thank you for looking at our website. We love it here. If you live in the neighborhood, grow deep in the neighborhood. Feel free to join us Sunday morning for worship. Or come eat with us on the 2nd or 3rd Saturday of the month. Northeast Minneapolis is a great place to live, and work, and worship, and eat. And begin again!


Pastor Sarah

"People say to me, 'oh you gotta be crazy! How can you {go to church} in times like these? Don't you read the news? Don't you know the score?'...People say to me, 'what kind of fool believes that a {church} will make a difference in the end?'   By way of a reply, I say a fool such as I who sees a {church} as somewhere to begin...The search for something worth believing in.  If changes are to come there are things that must be done and a {church} is somewhere to begin."  T.R. Ritchie, adapted

Lenten Season Begins February 25

The United Methodist churches in the northeast area are observing Lent together once again. This year's theme is "Body Matters". All observances will being at 5:30 p.m. with a meal of soup and bread, with a short service afterward.

On Wednesday, March 4, here at Northeast UMC, in lieu of a Lenten service, speakers will discuss what it means to be black in Minnesota, and being a black church in Minnesota. "Black Lives Matter" is the topic, and we will be joined by members of Faith Tabernacle Church of God in Christ.
