Have You Seen Our New Playground?

The vibrant ministry to children through our Weekday School has expanded this semester.  We have added a 2-year old class and it is wonderful.  The children are learning and being trained that church is a great place to be.  One mother said today, she has witnessed a miracle in the development of her child in just the first two weeks of school.  We praise God for the daily ministry of our Weekday School.

This also includes our 3 year old and 4 year old classes where we daily serve over twenty children.  Our after-school program helps twenty-four right children now with homework and other learning.  Of course, a highlight of the week is when members of Laurel Hill UMC provide Thursday After-School Sunday School!

Please continue to pray each day for the work Margo Keeles, our director, and all of our teachers and teachers’s aides are doing.  Praise God for those who come in and help serve the children, preparing meals and snacks, caring for the children, and providing encouragement for our staff.  Oh, and make sure you check out the new playground, the newly power-washed playground equipment (THANKS CUB SCOUTS!!), and all the good things going on here everyday at Laurel Hill UMC.

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.
