United Methodist Church


Pastor Cindy Roberts

Hello and Welcome to Lynden United Methodist Church!

I am an Ordained Elder in the Pacific Northwest Conference of the United Methodist Church. In the 18 years I have served the United Methodist Church, I have been appointed to nine difference church communities, with Lynden UMC being my sixth appointment. I have served at Lynden UMC since July 2023.

My spiritual formation began in Michigan, where I was born and baptized. My early
relationship with the mysteries of God have led me all over the world and now to Lynden.
Reason, Experience, Scripture, and Tradition are Wesleyan tenets that guide me through the church life principles, and discipleship for the masses. Scripture and its interpretation
for the daily lives of people is always in the forefront for me in mission and ministry of a church. Journeying with people is the best way to know how scripture is enlivened, applied and lived out in the ordinary lives of people and their attempts to be disciples of Jesus Christ. I continue to be formed by the Holy Scriptures, and walk with the Holy Spirit now and forever. Amen.

Before becoming a member of the clergy, I was a teacher and also served in the United States Marine Corps. I have two (mostly) grown sons and two grandsons, as well as a dog named Bella and a cat named Ditto.

I am so happy to be back here at Lynden United Methodist Church. I grew up in Lynden in this very church; from Sunday school in the basement, to potluck picnics, singing in the choir and bringing my own kiddos when they were small. This is a return to the church office for me as well and I am grateful for the chance to be here again as your Administrative Assistant and Bookkeeper. You will not find a kinder more supportive group of people than among us Methodists.

I grew up in Lynden, spent the past 15 years living in BC and am living once again in Lynden with my 2 teens. I love being back in Lynden where it is ok to forget to lock your doors, safe to go for an evening walk and easy to find a friendly face. On my weekends you will likely find me working in my yard or just sitting in the backyard reading a good mystery novel. I love sitting on a driftwood log out at Birch Bay, sitting around a fire with
friends, and going for walks with my kids.
