We love our neighbors primarily through ministries of food and ministries that support children and teens
Community Garden: LUMC's Community Garden is located in the field behind the church and is a place for volunteers of all ages to plant, harvest, explore, and enjoy God's creation. Food from the garden is available for volunteers to take home and is also shared with our neighbors through the Lewisville Community Assistance Program.
World Relief Triad: In response to the biblical command to care for our immigrant neighbors, our church's Good Neighbor Team is trained by World Relief to support a refugee family for their first six months in the country. On Christmas Eve, the entirety of our offering goes to support our refugee ministry and the work of World Relief. Contact Pastor Paul if you're interested in being a part of the Good Neighbor Team.
Blessings Box: At the corner of the west side of our parking lot we house a blessing box to bless those in our community who are in need. The box contains items such as canned foods and snacks, personal hygiene items, seasonal items such as sunscreen or warm gloves. Individuals within the community are welcome to take items as needed or give items when they can. Our mission team sustains the blessings box by adding items throughout the year. Any other groups or individuals are invited to donate items as well.
Open Arms Service Opportunity: The primary mission of Open Arms, a ministry of the United Methodist Church, has been to share the love, hope, and joy of Christ by offering programs on-site to mitigate poverty, low educational achievement, substance abuse, and societal prejudice against marginalized people and groups. To volunteer, please contact Pastor Paul (email@example.com)
