Raised Up in September

harveyreliefOur world is showing it’s need for Jesus Christ more and more every day.  Whether we are facing civil unrest or natural disasters, we are being called upon by the Lord to be raised up and counted during the month of September.  We are the church, the body of Christ, commissioned as the Lord’s representatives in the earth.

This begins with our commitment to share the good news of Jesus Christ through word, deed, and sign.  This involves demonstrating our love for people in concrete and honest ways.  Invite your friends and neighbors to worship with you as we find fresh wisdom from God’s ancient source of truth, the Holy Scriptures this month.

Join us in supporting those devastated by Hurricane Harvey through UMCOR and see the five ways you can help right now. Remember also, September is Hunger Awareness Month and the Society of Saint Andrew asks for our involvement including participating in the Virginia Day of Action, Friday September 29, 2017.

Plus, here is our September Calendar and newsletter.

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.
