Unique Gifts for Christmas (or any other time of the year)!
"Christmas Shopping for a Cause"
Nicaragua Ministries Fundraiser*

Pluck a leaf from the Tree of Life and surprise someone with a life-giving gift that keeps on giving.  SPONSOR (in the name of your gift recipient) a water filter, food bag, school supplies or other much-needed item to bless those we will serve in Nicaragua next summer.  A special gift card will be provided for you to give to the recipient of your gift to let them know how you have honored them by your donation in their name.

*Visit the Nica Team display in the Welcome Center after each worship service on Sundays, Dec. 10th and 17th


Have you noticed the beautiful memorial sidewalk that links our Fellowship Hall side porch to the children's playground? Donors have honored and/or memorialized their family and friends by purchasing an engraved brick in the sidewalk. On December 3rd and 10th you can find a display and order forms in the Welcome Center.  Questions?  Contact Doug Yeates.


In keeping with our annual tradition, we will place one large poinsettia on the altar this Christmas. If you would like to make a donation in memory or in honor of someone special, please complete the form which can be found in the church office, and place it along with your check in the offering plate, or drop it off in the church office.

All proceeds from the Poinsettia Fund this year will be donated to PIN Ministry. PIN (People in Need) exists to provide food, clothing, shelter and free medical care for people who are either homeless or extremely poor. The ultimate focus is to help the homeless of Hampton Roads transform their lives by meeting them where they are and sharing a God who loves them and wants a relationship with them.

Please make checks payable to LUMC and note on the memo line "PIN Ministry."

There will be an insert in the church bulletin on Sunday, Dec. 17th, listing all who have donated in memory of or in honor of someone special, and at the same time helped those who benefit from PIN Ministry's services.  Deadline to submit is Monday, Dec. 11th.
