Our annual Pumpkin Patch has long-benefited the risk-taking missions and service of our church, but many, both in the community and within our own church, didn't know the connection between them. The 12th annual LHUMC pumpkin patch will once again raise needed funds for ministry projects led by and for local residents. These projects include:
Hardly Able:A team that builds accessibility ramps for the disabled.
Southport Elementary School partnershipYear-round efforts to assist teachers and students, including backpacks with food sent home to more than 60 children each Friday.
New Horizons Learning Center partnershipMentoring and food ministry efforts serving high-risk students.
CityServe Annual Day of Service which sends hundreds of church members into the community to complete numerous projects.
Mobile Food PantryOngoing ministry to collect and distribute food to needy families. Since 2015, a total of 95,000 pounds of food has been distributed, helping more than 6,000 area residents.
Titus 2A residential, women’s recovery program in Bay County.
Nest BuildersA program that supports local foster and adoptive families.
Keeping with our 2020 vision, we want to give you the opportunity to serve our missions in every way possible. The ways in which you can serve this year include:
Shifts are throughout the day in 2-4 hour blocks.
