It's time to test your decorating and construction skills. All are invited to our Annual Youth Group Gingerbread house party on Sunday Nov 27th at 6pm.

Think you have what it takes to make a masterpiece? Join us for tons of fun and fellowship! Plus the two best designs of the night will win a prize (1 for Middle School and 1 for High School).

BYOC (Bring your own candy!) We have the house kits and the supplies that typically go with them, but we like to go big or go home. (Or should we say "Go big on our homes"!) So please bring a bag of candy we can use to make these houses really pop! Email with any questions.

LHUMC Student Highlights

For Parents


We believe students need a place to have fun, learn about God, be encouraged, and connect with positive adults. As parents, we know you want your children to be in an environment that will help them discover and grow in their faith. We commit to providing that environment each Sunday and Wednesday. New student members are always welcome!
