CURRENT STUDY (beginning 1/17/19): 
Gods at War: Defeating the Idols That Battle for Your Heart by Kyle Idleman

There are gods at war within each of us. They battle for the throne of our hearts, and much is at stake. This is why idolatry is the most discussed problem in the entire Bible. Behind every sin struggle that you and I have is a false god that is winning the war in our lives. Don't give in to the myth that gods are only statues that people of other cultures or long ago worshiped. Pleasure, romance, sex, money, and power are just a few of the gods that vie for our allegiance in today's society. Join Kyle Idleman in this convicting study, as he explores these gods. When the Lord God takes His rightful place on the throne of our hearts, we will have victory.

Our men's group meets every Thursday evening (7:30-9:00pm) during the school year and all men of the church (Sr. Highs to age 100) are invited to join us for 
an informal time of Bible Study and sharing that challenges men to step into their God-given role as leaders in their homes, their church, and their communities.

Quilt for a Cause meets once a month, the third Saturday of the month.  We meet 10am to 3pm but often members bring a bag lunch and quilt through the afternoon.  It is a relaxed get-together, with participants coming and going according to their personal schedules.   
The LUMC quilting group is open to all - church members, friends, neighbors, all ages!  We are all Christian women following God’s call for service and having fun.  Our skill levels range from beginner to experienced so even if you've never quilted before, you'll fit right in - this is the place to learn.  Our gifted, fun-loving (and patient) leaders are Jane Amelon and Chris Walker and the quilting group was born in January of 2011 out of their love for quilting and desire to share that with others and give back to our community at the same time.
