Three Big Ways You Can Serve

View the bulletin for this Sunday and commit yourself to being a part of the outreach and mission work of Laurel Hill United Methodist Church.

 1. Bring an item: a book, a DVD, or a stuffed animal for the outreach to the MCV Medical Center’s Children’s Emergency Room.  There are three more weeks, the 14th, the 21st, and the 28th when you can bring items for this ministry.

2. See how you can help with Trunk or Treat.  This ministry outreach is set for October 31st and starts at 6:30 PM.  Talk to Jeremy and Stephanie Rowan and see how you can help provide food or candy for the evening, or you could park your car beside mine, decorate your trunk, and bring plenty of treats for the children of our community.  You can get to meet the young families of our community and share with them the good news about Jesus Christ and our life together here at Laurel Hill.  Choose a Bible theme or dress up in costume, be creative and be a part of Trunk or Treat.

3.  Get your tickets for our Fall Mission Dinner & Auction set for Saturday, November 3rd, plan for the item or items you would like to contribute to the auction.  Maybe you have a friend that would like to donate goods or services for the auction.  Contact Peggy Singlemann and find out what you can do to help.

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.
