We will have finger foods and fellowship beginning at 6 pm and the simulcast is from 7-9:30 pm. There is no charge to the public for this event; instead, a love offering will be taken for Feed by Faith ministry. This event is for women, men and teens.

It’s time to order VBS t-shirts! VBS is early this year and we want to make sure that everyone that wants to order a shirt gets the opportunity. Adult shirts are $10 each and the children’s shirts are going to be paid for from the Wednesday night potluck next week (May 30) There are 4 color options: Tangerine, a medium Blue, Irish Green, and Hot Pink.
If you placed your order Wednesday night for the Coral Silk, please see Jan…that color is not available and was changed to Hot Pink.
Sorry for the short notice but this has snuck up on me
If you aren’t going to be at church Wednesday night, please call or email me with your order 601-917-3209 or email@example.com
The adorable little children of LUMC have once again entertained us Wednesday April 11th, and we’ve captured it. The pictures are now posted on the Photo Gallery page. Take a look and see how much fun you missed if you didn’t attend. You also missed the entire audience participating in the Hokey Pokey for Jesus.
There are also a couple of videos from that night posted in the video section of our web site that you just can’t miss. Be sure to play the “Children Getting Set” first to get the full affect.
Dear Lauderdale United Methodist Church Family & Friends,
A cartoon from a few years ago showed a woman saying to her husband, “Good grief, Henry. Here’s Christmas at our throats again!”
Amid the preparations for Christmas each year, there always seem to be a few voices like hers, proclaiming a “Bah, humbug!” on the whole business. And if the truth be known, some of us may feel less than excited about Christmas ourselves. The expense, the crowds, the overindulgence, the hurried schedules and all the other trappings of modern Christmas celebrations are enough to make all of us to have a Scrooge look at the season.
In the face of the humbug state of affairs, it is helpful to remember that God did not send Jesus to be “at our throats,” but to be “in our hearts.” The difference between those two concepts defines the gap between gloom and glory. There’s a reason we call the gospel good news. As John so aptly put it, “For God sent the Son into the world, not to condemn the world, but that the world might be saved through him” (3:17).
Jesus is God’s gift to our world — and to our hearts. When Jesus resides within, whether we enjoy or merely tolerate the flurry of seasonal preparations, Christmas itself is a grand opportunity to say thank you to God for the gift of the Son.
My Prayer for you is that you and your family have a Blessed Christmas and remember to let Christ be the center of your life.
In God’s peace & Merry Christmas,
The Shoe Box Party was a wonderful success!! We packed 210 boxes to send to Samaritan’s Purse for Operation Christmas Child. What now you may ask? Our boxes are taken to a collection point in Meridian and then to a processing center. From there they must go through customs clearance before being put on hundreds of trucks/lorries and then sea containers ready for transport across the world. Our boxes and millions like them will be delivered to local churches and ministry partners in their receiving country. The shoe boxes are given to children unconditionally. Where appropriate, children are offered a copy of The Greatest Gift of All booklet in their own language by local churches and ministry partners to share the love of God.
Many photos were taken while we packed these boxes so don’t forget to take a look. Click here for picture page!
I wanted to give you some details about our Fall Festival that is going to be next Saturday, October 29 beginning at 5:00 pm.�
The mission of Operation Christmas Child is to demonstrate God’s love in a tangible way to needy children around the world and to share the Good News of Jesus Christ. November 6th, after the youth lunch, we will be packing over 200 boxes. In order to fill these boxes we are still in need of items. Read More→
Thanks to Karen for a lesson on the awe of God’s creation. There were about 26 children participating in tonight’s Wednesday night 1st – 6th grade class.
