(Payable: LHUMC, Memo line: Pig) or  your favorite UMW member will gladly accept cash or checks! If you would like to help give a family in poverty a hand-up not a hand-out, help us give them a PIG!

Are you new to Lake Highlands United Methodist Church?  Or have you been visiting us for a while and are interested in taking your spiritual journey to the next level?  We would like to invite you to join us for an information session to learn more about LHUMC.  This will be a causal gathering where Pastor John and Pastor Monty will present information about LHUMC and how you can be connected through study, service and membership. 
Make the Bread Connection
Bread Ministry

Countless people are blessed through LHUMC's Bread Connection ministry. For years, its faithful team members daily have picked up bread and other perishables - food otherwise destined for a dumpster -- from nearby Kroger and the Lake Highlands Super Target.


Depending on the day, these goods ultimately find their way to hungry people through Community Ministries' Audelia Manor Fellowship and New Room Community Church, Network of Community Ministries or Austin Street Center.


Currently, the Bread Connection team needs someone for the 9 am Sunday pick-up at Super Target.  If you want to help, please contact Target Team Leader Al Tyler at 972-591-1952
