Keep Your Heart on the Right Path

These words of Proverbs 23: 19 reverberated in my mind as we began our Sunday Night Bible Study last night.  We are conducting an holy experiment as we study the scriptures together and write the book, More than Breathing in the process.  If you would like to join us you still can.  Let Barbara (795-2772) or myself know and we will provide a copy of next week’s chapter.

The other big news of the evening was the excitement I enjoyed when I talked with the Youth.  It was a big group and several of them have been thinking about starting a band.  I heard about that and invited them to consider being used of God as part of the scheduled early service we are planning to begin on June 3rd, 2012.  Our first practice is in three weeks – Sunday, February 12th at 4:00pm.  If you would like to join us, bring your instrument and we will see you there!

About laurelhillumc

Laurel Hill United Methodist Church is rich in history as a church family committed to a life in Christ. We began in the heart of Varina almost 150 years ago; the church has grown through its existence as a church-hospital in the Civil War, as a circuit church, and survived a disastrous fire which destroyed the sanctuary about 50 years ago. Then, dedicated, Spirit-filled Christians worked hard together to build a new sanctuary. That hard work has continued with many new improvements including a new addition connecting the sanctuary and educational building, the installation of an elevator providing total accessibility throughout both buildings, remodeling the education building and the installation of 18 stained glass windows. Faithful clergy and laity ministering together have established a legacy of dedication and service which enables Laurel Hill to be a beacon of light in our community, in our world and to all who follow for generations to come. In response to the needs of the Varina community, Laurel Hill United Methodist Church also operates the Laurel Hill Weekday School. These programs are an active part of the life and ministry of Laurel Hill UMC. We accept the opportunity through our morning Preschool and After School child care to share our values of love, caring, cooperation and forgiveness. The Church and child care programs work together to enhance the spiritual, mental and physical growth of children in our community. Our worship services are held each Sunday with a contemporary service at 8:45am and a traditional service at 11:00am. Sunday School begins at 9:45am. Call our office (804) 795-2772 for Bible Study times and other ministry opportunities.
