Why the new schedule?
 

Worship, more than anything, should be done together as a family, both individual families and also as brothers and sisters in Christ.

Through the years we’ve seen children we’ve served, who had once been on fire for God and in love with His presence, slowly drift away from church and the Lord. We, along with many other churches around the world, have seen that the model of children’s ministry in the church, where children are separate from their parents, was not working! Children graduate out of Sunday school and feel like there is nothing left for them at church. Something had to change, because the “fig tree” of children’s ministry just had so little fruit. We’ve recognized that it is time to plant a new seed. Having children worship alongside their parents and other believers will create in them a rounded faith based not only on education but also worship and unity as the Body of Christ. It is our responsibility as a faith community to build up the children God has entrusted to us.
 
In addition to that, for the past twenty years we have neglected a large group of adults who did not have an opportunity for Christian education on Sunday mornings because Sunday school was held during the contemporary worship time.
 
This new Sunday morning worship schedule is designed to create lifelong worshipers and followers of Jesus at all ages and stages of life.
 
 
 
 
Nursery is available during 9am worship on Sunday mornings.
Children, infant through 3 years old, may be dropped off and left with our staff
while parents attend worship.
 
Volunteers are needed.
Please contact Shiloh Scott to volunteer.

New Worship Features

 

Although we have not been together much during COVID, LHUMC has been at work planning new equipment for the sanctuary to improve sight and sound including:

  • An upgraded sound system with features to assist anyone experiencing difficulty hearing.
  • Cameras, lights and equipment to transmit worship and other events live. Even when ill, confined to home or traveling, many will be able to experience worship almost as if they were present in the sanctuary.
In addition to serving our own church family, these new features can help LHUMC be better accepted in today’s changing world by reaching new disciples (in person and by computer/electronic access).

CASSEROLE MINISTRY

“Never worry about the numbers.  Help one person at a time and always start with the person nearest you.” These are words by Mother Teresa.

Our church family has been doing just that since last September.  Over 30 families have been involved in preparing casseroles for a ministry sponsored by Alice Neary of Ferndale and Bmore Caring (a non-profit group based in Glen Burnie.  These people serve meals to homeless in Glen Burnie, Brooklyn Park, Brooklyn and Baltimore City.  Our church has 3 teams with 10-12 in each team.  Rotating so that once every three months, the volunteer bakes the casseroles and delivers them to church, where they are then taken to a packing center.  Along with buttered bread and cookies, provided by us, the food is packed into containers then taken to about 8 locations and distributed to those in need.  Bottled water is also donated by our volunteers.  We participate in this outreach ministry on the 2nd Friday of every month;  however, the overall program distributes meals 3 times every week to anywhere from 80 to 120 people.  Our church family is putting our Faith Into Action, even during the Covid-19 pandemic and showing our love and compassion to so many in our nearby communities.

Volunteering is Good for You!
 

Greetings in Christ!

You are invited to participate in an opportunity to get involved in a ministry of practical and spiritual value that serves our LHUMC community in a tangible way.

Our Tuesday Work Crew is seeking interested members to join its team of folks who perform routine tasks inside and outside of the church facility, to ensure the continuity of building and grounds operation and maintenance. (Examples: gardening, painting, carpentry repairs, setting clocks/thermostats, minor plumbing repairs, organizing and procuring materials, planning work projects, etc.)

     No special skills or talents are required – just a desire to be a part of a friendly and enthusiastic group.  And if Tuesday mornings don’t fit your schedule, other days/times can be arranged.

     Please prayerfully consider joining this ministry, which has been an integral part of our church for many years.

     Volunteering on this ministry is a great way to plug into the church, feel like part of a community, enjoy spirited fellowship, and serve Jesus at the same time.

     We seek to be a blessing to our church community.  And we look forward to the tremendous things God is doing through this ministry.

     Please contact Roger Wilson (469-952-7457), Vickie Cromer (410-629-9371) or Scott Muchow (410-859-0972) for more information.
