It’s time to open the proverbial tool box again to help build and repair church ministries—to fix what’s broken and improve what’s working. That requires leadership development and training more than anything else.

So the Eastern PA Conference will sponsor its 2022 Tools for Ministry on Saturday, March 5, 9 AM to 12:30 PM. Classes will be offered virtually on Zoom once again, out of an abundance of caution during the still-surging COVID pandemic… Learn More

Congregational Care Team

Did you know we have a team of people from our congregation who visit shut-ins?  This team has been visiting and at times taking communion elements to shut-ins.  We currently have fifteen people who are being visited.  We would like to invite more people to be part of this visitation team.  Contact Pastor Warner or Maryellen Reinmiller if you are interested in being part of this caring team, and would like to know more about this caring ministry.

Cottage Meetings

Cottage Meeting Update

Sending out a special thank you to our five Cottage meeting hosts (Mark & Maryellen Reinmiller, Mike & Jill Nickerson, Todd & Laurel Harper, Verna Colliver, Lonnie & Ibby Turnipseed, Cindy McFadden). Thank you for your hospitality and graciousness. Thirty-three people attended the five meetings we held in October and the first week of November. Attendees ranged in age from college students all the way up to 90+ years old. We’ll take a break during Thanksgiving/ Advent/ Christmas season (Nov/Dec) and then startup with more Cottage meetings in January. We will also need additional hosts come January. Please contact Pastor Warner if you can host a Cottage meeting

Custodian Search Update

We are now looking for a new custodian for our church. The position is a part-time position and includes janitorial service as well as some “handyman” type duties. Our custodian resigned after 15 years of faithful service. We are searching for a new custodian in an unpredictable and uncertain job market where lots of people are leaving jobs. If you are interested or know someone who could be a qualified candidate, please contact the church office, 215-855-8364 and we will contact you very soon.

Community Block Party Team

LUMC will be offering a community block party in our parking lot in summer 2022.  Date is yet to be set.  Pastor Warner is looking for people to be part of this planning team as we seek to build bridges and connections with people in our community.  The Block Party will also be a time for us to make connections with local agencies and municipalities.  We will have activities for children and youth and hope to have lots of food as well.  Email Pastor Warner ( if you would like to serve on this team as we seek to be in mission to our surrounding community.
