A Big Thank You

Dear Friends: Thank you so much for being the generous and giving people that make Laurel Hill United Methodist such a special place.  Thank you to the person(s) responsible for the swing set in the backyard at the parsonage. Ava loves it.  Thank you for the person who left the beautiful dress and expression of love for Ava on my office desk.  Thanks to all those who have left special gifts for Karen and me, there.

Thanks to Phyllis and Jonathan Schmick and to Mary Holmes for hosting a fun night of Bingo last Friday night!  Thanks to Connie Madison and Teresa Akers for representing our church in such a warm and wonderful way at Varina Day last Saturday.  Thank you to those who worked in the kitchen yesterday to make our first Sunday luncheon such a great time for which to look forward. Thanks to everyone who congratulated us on our new grandson – Eli James.  Grace and peace be yours through our Lord Jesus Christ.

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.
