Welcome to Grace United Methodist Church. The people of Grace have a wide range of interests and ideas—and range in age from infant to almost 100. What are the ties that bind us together? We believe Grace’s vision is one way of defining ‘grace.’ Grace is learning to live and love like Jesus.

Together we are learning the art of gracious, God-inspired living. Welcome to Grace. Here, may you grow in faith, feel God’s empowering embrace, and be a sign of God’s loving-care in the world

Lenten Journey – Reckless Love by Tom Berlin

This year our Lenten journey will be guided by Tom Berlin's latest book entitled Reckless Love. 

While many hope to learn to be better family, friends, leaders, and neighbors by finding a deeper relationship with God, what if becoming a better neighbor leads you to that deeper love of God? In his exploration of Jesus’ teaching and travels with his disciples, Berlin suggests that Jesus teaches us how to love God with heart, soul, mind, and strength by first showing us how to love our neighbor.

In Reckless Love, we will  be considering our lives, and learn how loving the people around us will completely renew our faith and give us a new experience of loving God.

Join us Wednesdays during Lent as we discover how deepen our relationship with God by loving recklessly.


If you could only sense how important you are to the the lives of those you meet; how important you can be to the people you may never even dream of.  There is something of yourself that you leave at every meeting with another person.   Fred Rogers

In the sixth and final chapter of his book “Reckless Love,” Tom Berlin reminds us that we don't get to turn our love off or on like a switch. We are to make it a discipleship that takes over our lives. Rev. Laurie Kantonen, superintendent for the Minnesota Conference’s North Star District, and Rev. Rebecca Trefz, director of ministries for the Dakotas Conference, discuss their insights.
