September News Letter and Calendar

We are living in the world changed so fast.  But we have to remembers there is the world unchanging and eternal. That world is visible only through the eyes of faith.  Stephen saw the throne of God but the people stoning him did not. Risen Lord was seen to disciples but not to others. On the road to Damascus Paul saw the glory of the Lord but accompanies not. So Hebrews 11:1 says, “Faith is…certain of what we do not see.” Faith will make us see things invisible. So Christians are called as visionaries (Acts 2:17). We are to called to do the ministry of piety and mercy according to John Wesley.

Our children are back to school. New sports season is back. We are facing our challenge and hope for the future.

September is the month of preparation of the Charge Conference. And also there will be fellowship gatherings at several houses of our church members:

* Young Parents Fellowship Lunch at 11:30 at the Parsonage on Sep 8th (Sat)                   * Ladies of Laurel Hill Luncheon at 11:00am at Nancy Henry’s on Sep 11th (Tue)                 * Children’s Church Workers fellowship at Angela and Chris Ragland at 7:00pm                                                  on Sept. 12th (Wed). Please make sure where you are belonging.

Here is the September Newsletter  and Calendar


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.
