A Good Report

The Bible tells us we can rejoice in the Lord and we certainly can at Laurel Hill United Methodist Church. So many have helped us share our love for the mission and ministries to which God has called us, especially recently through our Mission Dinner and Auction. From those who donated items, to those who prepared them for display and auction, to those who served our meal, to those who decorated our tables, to those who auctioned the items, to those who gave without getting anything in return, we are so blessed and thankful for every soul.

In that same passage that encourages us to rejoice in the Lord, it also speaks about what we need to be thinking. So, I want to help you think about what is true, lovely, and brings forth a good report: after subtracting our expenses from all the proceeds and donations we received, we raised almost $7,500 for our mission and ministries!

Again, I say thanks to all who helped and a big, shout out of praise to the Lord from whom all blessings flow.MissionDinner2016

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.
