We are a dynamic, positive congregation that seeks to make disciples of Jesus Christ by proclaiming the good news of God's grace and thus seeking the fulfillment of God's reign and realm in the world. We are a warm family of believers who welcome you to join our faith family and begin to experience God's grace in your life.
We at Lansdale United Methodist Church are deeply rooted in the Christian tradition with a heritage of faith in experiencing both a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and a communal expression of compassion for others. All of this is based on the foundational belief in the gift of prayer that sustains us as individuals and as a church. We seek to know God's will and express that will in disciplined lives of faith through worship, Bible study and Christian education, financial giving, talents, time and service.
Ed Roberts and the Chancel Choir hosted Christ UMC Choir and the Gloria Dei Bell Ringers on Sunday March 30 in the Lansdale UMC Sanctuary. Everyone was delighted and moved by the performances of the combined choirs and the bell choir. Here are some quotes:
I was really excited about today as well! We even got a standing ovation...one man ..but that is great! I am singing the songs in my head as well....I wake up singing them!
That for me was one of the greatest choir presentations ever. I am still singing both pieces in my head. The reception from the congregation and the Lansdale United Methodist choir was so thrilling. I felt quite at home being there today. It is powerful to see people in the sanctuary beaming with HUGE SMILES as we present such great messages. It is due to the GLORY OF THE LORD that we get to experience the WONDROUS LOVE IS THIS from Jesus.
Attention ALL Women!
On Saturday June 14th, a special event for the women of LUMC and the community will be held in our church. Marie Monville will be the speaker for this event.
Marie Monville (formerly Marie Roberts) is the young widow of Charlie Roberts, the man responsible for the Nickel Mines tragedy which resulted in the death of five Amish girls and injured five more. Marie, the mother of three, decided that this tragedy would not define her life and the lives of her children.
Marie recently wrote a book entitled One Light Still Shines. Her message is that “no matter how tragic your circumstance, your life is not a tragedy. It is a love story. And in your love story, when you think all the lights have gone out, one light still shines.”
Mark your calendars for this special event and invite your friends. The morning will start with a continental breakfast and fellowship time, followed by a time of singing and music from our very own Praise! Band, and then Marie Monville’s talk. Marie’s book will be available for purchase in Stringer after the event and she will be available to sign your copy.
You may register online for this event. Our vision for this event is to FILL our sanctuary!
There is no cost (a free will offering will be taken) but a reservation will be required.
UMCOR has had a strong collaborative partnership with Muslim Aid in relief and development projects around the world. In 2011, the organizations came together in Haiti to support food security and hygienic meal preparation.
Since the January 2010 earthquake, it has become even more important to ensure the safe preparation of meals in order to prevent the spread of cholera. UMCOR and Muslim Aid sought to address this threat among one of the most vulnerable populations in Haiti: school children.
They targeted schools that received food assistance from the school feeding programs of the World Food Programme (WFP). At ten sites across the Haitian capital, Port-au-Prince, they built and equipped school kitchens, benefiting hundreds of children with nutritious and hygienic meals.
Your gift to Haiti Response, UMCOR Advance #418325, will make a difference in the lives of children like these and for all Haitians, who are determined to rebuild their country.
