Church-wide picnic today
After the service all are welcome to enjoy food and fellowship as we celebrate a year of faith development of our youth, families, and volunteers. Food will be served in Fellowship Hall and games and face painting outside. Bring a plate outside to a picnic table! The picnic is for everyone. We’d love it if all joined in to celebrate our youth and thank our volunteers.
Stop in Fellowship Hall and get a new LFUMC t‑shirt to wear to picnic. They’re soft cotton, short-sleeved, perfect for this humid weather. They’re cool and you will be too!
