LHUMC is alive and active as the body of Christ.
There are many ways to get involved to grow in faith and expand God’s Kingdom. 
 Faithful volunteers are  involved in a variety of ministries from things as simple as preparing church bulletins, attending Bible studies and praying for each other,
to providing meals for our neighbors in need
Not sure how you fit? Identifying and understanding your spiritual gifts is a good way to find where you should connect. God has uniquely created you to be you, and has given you gifts to participate in and support the Body of Christ, the church.  This Spiritual Gifts Assessment helps individuals identify their God-given gifts for living faithfully as Christian disciples day by day and find meaningful ways to use their gifts in connection with others through the community of faith. The process helps people understand the nature of spiritual gifts and ways to enhance the effectiveness of their gifts by linking together with others.
The goal of small groups, Life Groups, is to build our relationships; with one another and with Christ. These groups  meet regularly to ask, as John Wesley often did, “how goes it with your soul?”  Small groups are not Bible studies or interest-based, they are simply a time to come together with a trusted group to share how you are experiencing God.  As you journey within your group you will be transformed as you draw closer to God.  
Small Groups meet at the following days and times
Sundays 6:30pm, Mondays 7pm, Tuesdays 7pm, and Wednesdays 10am and 7pm.
There is no need to RSVP, just pick the group that best fits your schedule and show up

Friends At Home

We have the honor of delivering delicious meals prepared in Heaven’s Kitchen, to our friends at home the third Saturday of each month. This ministry appears to be about providing good home cooked meals to our friends at home but is much more than that. This ministry is about fellowship, and developing friendships with our friends at home, who are a very important part of our church family. All who are involved in this ministry would agree that we are blessed by meeting and sharing a short visit with our friends. One of our friends at home comments consistently, how much this visit means to her, and how much it means to have someone outside of her own family call and then visit during meal delivery.

Christian Education

The Christian education program is here to help us understand our calling as disciples. A disciple is a follower or a learner. It refers to someone who takes up the ways of someone else. Applied to Jesus, a disciple is someone who learns from him to live like him. Through study of Scripture, we find understanding and ways to apply the teachings of Jesus to our lives.  This understanding and application leads to transformation; which is the goal of a Christian; to become more like Christ.  Our Christian education program accomplishes this through our Sunday school program, Bible studies, and special events (i.e. VBS, Family Christmas event…)
