Welcome to Northeast United Methodist Church!

In our Christian tradition, these are the Ordinary Days.  The great feast days of the Christian Calendar, Christmas, Easter and Pentecost are over--the big events of the Christian journey: waiting, incarnation, suffering, death, resurrection and empowerment are over.  Now, the work of Jesus begins.  Ordinary days are not high holy days or feast days or spectacles with a roast after the show. Ordinary days are days when ordinary people do ordinary things. Ordinary days are Tuesdays in the garden  pulling weeds, planting seeds, or lazy afternoons reading books, creating art, talking about climate change, working in the kitchen.  Ordinary time is when we recognize God in our ordinary lives.  Ordinary time is beautiful.  These days holy isn't high and lifted up or deep in the cold of winter, or suffering; now the holy is playing.  Now, the holy is teaching us to play. 

Thank you for looking at our website.  We are delighted to call Northeast Minneapolis home; we are rooted in the diverse and interesting soil that makes this neighborhood and its people thrive.  Northeast is a great place to live and work and worship and play.

Peace, Pastor Sarah 

"Christ plays in ten thousand places, lovely in limbs, and lovely in eyes not his"  ~Gerard Manley Hopkins,  "As Kingfishers catch fire, dragonflies draw flame"

Join Us in the Garden!

If you see folks out weeding and planting our garden this summer, feel free to stop by and chat and pull  a weed or two. The food we grow in our churchyard and in the pastor's backyard is used at our free community meals and is given to the Little Kitchen Foodshelf right here in Northeast Minneapolis. We're loving our neighbors! Join us!

 

 

 

 

 Sunday School is Out for the Summer

Sunday School is on hiatus until September, but bring your kids to church anyway! Pastor Sarah always has a great children's sermon, and our sanctuary is Kid and Coffee-friendly! Sunday School will resume September 6.

 

 

Cemetery Plots for Sale

Northeast UMC owns 11 plots at Sunset Cemetery and one at Hillside. Some have them have been in our possession since 1961! The Trustees have decided it’s time to get these burial sites off of the books. The asking price for all graves is $2,000 each.

The gravesite at Hillside is valued at $2,300. It can be used as a single traditional grave, or it can hold two cremations, or a traditional grave and one cremation. It is in Section R, plot 135. 

The sites at Sunset are in two locations. There are a pair of graves in Block 22, lot 225, graves 7 and 8. The remaining 10 graves are in Block 3, Lot 131. The current asking price for a grave at Sunset is $2,895.
