You really can learn a lot at Laurel Hill United Methodist. You can learn that Jesus loves you and gave Himself for you. You can learn how to seek God and study His word in Sunday School. You can learn how to follow and play music or sing in the choir. You can learn how to love one another and serve your community. If you had been at Laurel Hill today, you could have even learned how to prune rose bushes. Peggy Singlemann, Director of Horticulture at Maymont, and our sister in the faith was teaching several of our members how to prune for maximum growth this morning.
The Kean University was great last night in concert! It was such a moving and encouraging time. The voices were beautiful, the young men and women were so gracious and delightful; we were truly blessed. Please pray for them as they continue their tour performing this afternoon and tomorrow in Myrtle Beach, SC, Roanoke Rapids, NC on Monday, and then heading back to New Jersey.
It was our wonderful privilege to host them and have them with us. Special thanks to Bill Balz for coordinating their visit and for the Men’s group for their breakfast, and to the many who brought food and helped with getting things organized and cleaned up. We have a wonderful Church here at Laurel Hill UMC and the Lord uses all of us to make it so.
