  • Description:

    First United Lutheran Church is seeking and praying for the right pastor to guide us as we grow and share God’s word with others.  First United has been a member of the LCMC since 2010 and is steeped in traditional Lutheran values.  We have come together by choice as a group of individuals to form this united congregation to worship God and to reach out to others to share God’s grace and love.

    We have an average weekly attendance of seventy members.  Our Sunday morning service is “non-liturgical” with a focus on worshipping God, and involving members of the congregation in the service.  We believe that the Pastor should be our spiritual leader and we try to encourage spiritual growth by providing opportunities for people to be involved in each service. We have an active Sunday School that meets before service on Sundays from September to April.  Our youth director leads youth programs that meet on Wednesdays.

    Roseau is a small vibrant town located just 10 miles from the Canadian border in beautiful northwestern Minnesota.  Roseau offers an excellent public school system, first class medical facilities, diverse civic and community organizations, and extensive hunting and fishing, and recreational opportunities.  One of the most notable facts about Roseau is that it is the birthplace of Polaris Industries and still is home to one of the manufacturing plants.  Roseau has something for every interest.  You will enjoy what Roseau has to offer along with its unique beauty.
