  • The church website has the same worship services, but the names of prayer concerns are not published. 
  • Participate and interact with your congregation before the 9:00 am Zoom.  It’s open about 8:50 am so that people have a chance to greet one another.  Worship recordings are on the church Facebook page.

  • Junk for Jesus! Pop the ring off soda cans and save for the Ronald McDonald House.  Recycle all other metal.  Place under the fire escape near the rear parking lot.  Please, please do not mix plastics or non-metal recycling or trash with the metal.  While all metals are recyclable, use separate bags or containers for different metals.  Make this profitable venture as easy for Doug as possible.  LUMC liaisons:  Sandy Heim for soda rings; Doug Sitler for all metal recycling.
