I know many of you are praying and are concerned how we might be of help to the victims of Hurricane Matthew. This is the first Southeastern Jurisdiction United Methodist Volunteer in Mission update: SEJ UMVIM update for our disaster response.
Thank you to Lois Miller for alerting us Sunday to the good work UMCOR (United Methodist Committee on Relief) is already on the ground doing in Haiti and the Caribbean. Read about it in this article: UMCOR’s Quick Response.
First Sunday in October is a very special day as we observe World Communion Sunday with our brothers and sisters all around the globe. One bread, one body, one Lord who is over us all. We rejoice in God’s mighty work among His people.
This Sunday also marks the first of five Sundays when we can bring in books, DVD’s, and stuffed animals for our ministry partnership with the Pediatric Emergency Room at the VCU Medical Center. Make the most of this opportunity to share and demonstrate the love of Jesus to these needy children.
Follow all we can do together through this month’s calendar and newsletter. Plus, see how we can be involved again in HEARTH, the Thanksgiving Food Box Program.

Dear Friends: You missed a great blessing if you weren’t here with us on August 3rd as we prayed together but we are called to come together again this Wednesday, August 17th at 7:00 PM. I want you to be there.
Laurel Hill has begun a new evening prayer service on the 1st and 3rd Wednesdays of each month at 7:00 P.M. These services will be focused on our many prayer concerns and prayers of gratitude. There will be opportunities for corporate and individual prayer. The beginning of each service will include a time to hear the Word and to reflect on the scripture passage. There will also be an opportunity to lift our voices to the Lord in song. Please consider taking advantage of this opportunity to share in prayer and to rejoice in God’s grace together. For additional information or if you have transportation needs, please contact Phil Deane at 804-334-9582.
We have also been called to join our brothers and sisters at Four Mile Creek for a special season of prayer for our Community Revival Services, September 11 – 13, 2016. Please click on this link and let us pray together!
Wanted to keep everyone up to date on some of the ministries we support at Laurel Hill. Here are the July newsletters for CARITAS, Heart Havens, and UMFS.
Encourage yourself in the Lord today and keep these ministries in your prayers.
