But to do that we need your help!

This years VBS will be called Creation Care Camp,

“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 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. 

Did you know that you don’t have to wait for a group from LHUMC to go to First Fruits Farm to volunteer there? You can sign up with the farm directly and go when it is convenient for you. Just follow this link:

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) for more information.
