Thank You for a Great VBS!

VBS2017FMCThanks to everyone who helped and supported Camp Out: Learning S’More about Jesus! Counting everyone, we had over 125 participants in Vacation Bible School this year.  We also were able to provide fresh water for 107 children through our VBS offering. Plus, we made 88 “GUTSY” Bears for the Henrico County Police Department to use as comfort bears.

We also had great food and so much of it we got to share twice with the local Fire Department.  Everything was so much fun, especially sharing the gospel of Jesus with the children.

Thanks to Four Mile Creek for hosting this cooperative ministry!

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.
