Where is God calling you to serve?
Sunday, April 7th 
Here to Serve Registration
We will not gather for regular Sunday morning worship services and classes.  Instead, we will take this opportunity to serve God as our entire church body spreads out into our community to serve our neighbors.  Through projects such as home repair for the disadvantaged and landscaping for a local recreation center, we will grow in our faith and show the community what it means to be the Church!

Our church-wide pig drive is off to a great start.  The drive continues through May.  If you would like to help give a family in poverty a hand-up not a hand-out, help us give them a PIG! 

The price is $120 per pig.  You can drop a check in the offering plate (Payable: LHUMC Memo line: Pig) or your favorite UMW member will accept cash or checks.
