Welcome to Northeast United Methodist Church! 


 Place of Warmth

It is cold outside!  In the heart of Winter, we, in Minnesota at least, know that we are in for a least a few more months of cold and snow.

At NEUMC, we are adapting our lives, rather than railing at the weather, and celebrating the gifts that a cold snap can bring.  The sky and the light at this time of year are unique in all of the seasons, and it is gorgeous.  Enjoy the light from indoors or, like I do, while walking the dogs.  Also, I encourage folks to slow down, to rest and nap, make and eat some soup, read, and reflect.  It is cold outside; nature is hibernating, you can too.

And in the snow and cold of winter, we still gather.  We have to huddle in to stay warm!  It can be scary, especially in these coldest days and nights of the year, to go out there alone.  We need each other.  Together we become a walipini: a place of warmth. 

Our walipini (which means Place of Warmth) is open and working!  We are growing (or at least keeping alive) broccoli, strawberries, peas, herbs and flowers in our underground greenhouse.  Our church’s expansion into experimenting with permaculture gives us fresh produce grown locally in the middle of winter!  This season of the year reminds me how much we need places of warmth to survive and to thrive, to feel safe, and to grow.

Northeast United Methodist Church wants to be a place of warmth.  Come join us as we gather, warmed by the fire of love. 

Thanks for checking out our website.  Northeast Minneapolis is a great place to live, work, play, and worship.  Now, maybe more than ever before, think globally, act locally, build community in Northeast.

“In everyone’s life, at some time, our inner fire goes out. It is then ignited into flame by an encounter with another human being.  We can be thankful for those people who rekindle the inner spirit.”  ~Albert Schweitzer.

Tenor J. Warren Mitchell to Appear at Northeast UMC Feb. 20

World-reknown opera tenor J. Warren Mitchell will give a concert on Saturday, February 20 at Northeast UMC. The concert will begin at 2 p.m. Suggested donation is $10, an item of warm winter clothing, or a non-perishable food item.

J. Warren made his European concert debut in Eben am Maurach, Austria, while participating in the Tyrolean Opera Program (TOP) in 2011 and 2012.  He returned in 2014 to celebrate TOP’s 10-year anniversary and made his European role debut as Cavaradossi in Puccini’s Tosca.  
In January of 2013, Jay was chosen to participate in a weeklong workshop at Carnegie Hall entitled, “The Song Continues,” where he was one of four singers, and the only tenor, who performed in a public master class with legendary mezzo-soprano, Marilyn Horne.  That spring, he was chosen as a recipient of the Agnes Varis Career Encouragement Grant and was a nominee for the Sara Tucker Award all through the Richard Tucker Music Foundation. Later that summer, the Alabama native attended the Music Academy of the West in Santa Barbara, CA, as a voice fellow and was the recipient of the Irene Cummings Hostetler and Theodore Hostetler Full Scholarship in Voice. After attending Music Academy of the West, Jay learned that he was one of fifteen tenors selected to participate in a three week program of study in New York specifically designed for tenors, and called TENORS!  During this time he worked with renowned tenor, Neil Shicoff and conductors Stephen Lord and Eugene Kohn.  

Out of approx. 450 singers worldwide, Jay was selected as a 2015 winner of  the Kammeroper Schloss Rheinsberg International Opera Competition and made his role debut as Alfredo in Verdi’s opera, La Traviata this summer in Rheinsberg, Germany.
New art by A.K. Dayton will also be on display.
