First United Methodist Church

Red Wing, Minnesota

Hello and Welcome, Friend

Our Vision:  We are people who have faith that God is on the Move!

First United Methodist Church of Red Wing celebrates that ALL persons are God’s children, created in God’s image and of sacred worth. We affirm our congregation’s commitment to spiritual diversity, individual integrity, and right to conscience before God. Our faith calls us to be in intentional ministry to, with, and for all people, including those who have not always been accepted because of race, ethnicity, nationality, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, physical abilities/qualities, socio/economic status, family make-up, or religious background. We respectfully advocate for full legal, civil, and ecclesial rights for all persons.

Seeking God's guidance for your everyday life choices?  

Maybe we can help.  Spiritual direction is conversation and prayer with a Spiritual Guide who may help you notice the ways God guides you to go.

We offer confidential Spiritual Direction, free, to a limited number of persons on a short-term basis.  For more information, contact Pastor Clay Oglesbee at 507-251-9283 about this Ministry of First United Methodist Church of Red Wing

October Adult Forums - Life Stages in the Christian Life with God

During the first weeks of our fall schedule, much of our preaching and several of our adult forums will focus on the life-stages we experience.  We will discuss some of the physical, relational, emotional and spirtual characteristics of a maturing human being who is a Christian.  This is all part of the spiritual journey of every soul.
