Third week of Lent – BIG LUMYouth Fundraiser & more!

Week of February 27, 2018 – In This Issue:

SUNDAY MARCH 4 – THIRD SUNDAY OF LENT*
“Turning the Tables”
Pastor Peggy Hillmon Preaching
Communion served at both services
LUMYouth Chili/Soup Luncheon & Auction following services
 
Jesus stands up against those who are profiting from religious obligation. In John’s gospel this is just the beginning of his challenges concerning the religious elite. In Mark’s gospel, this act is the last straw for Jesus, as the religious leaders begin the plot to kill Jesus.
 
*During the Lenten season, you might notice scarcity in the pomp and circumstance of worship – this is intentional as we contemplate this season of wandering in the wilderness, and what it means to follow Jesus with our lives. 

LUMYOUTH CHILI/SOUP LUNCHEON & AUCTION
Supporting & Loving our Youth 

March 4th is a big day at LUMC! Every year the LUMYouth do one HUGE fundraiser – and this Sunday is that day! Please join us for a delicious meal, great fellowship, and an all-around great experience of showing our youth that they are loved, supported and championed. Make sure to join us during Heavenly Half-Hour to preview auction items; some items will be available to bid and take with you right then and there! 

Funds raised go to support the MANY facets of youth ministries – mission trips, Youth Week, retreat expenses, transportation, outreach projects, and so much more. 

Bring your appetite and your checkbook! 

Operation Eden

OPERATION EDEN UPDATE
Restoring our property 
 
Operation Eden – Lenexa UMC’s Landscaping Campaign – officially launched a few weeks ago. The Property Management Team is looking forward to “sprucing” up the east side of our property. 
 
We have made it past the half-way mark toward our goal! Please send your gifts toward Operation Eden by Palm Sunday – March 25th in order for the Property Management Team to plan accordingly.

WEDNESDAY EVENINGS ARE FOR EVERYONE
Building community through eating together, and being together
 
Pulled Pork Paradise
Each week, on Wednesday nights we provide a {FREE} family meal. Join us for pulled pork sandwiches, chips, and a dessert. Invite your neighbors – we love sharing a meal with new friends.

LUMYOUTH MEET AT BLACKDOG COFFEEHOUSE
Fostering relationships and spiritual formation, one cup of coffee at a time

 

The LUMYouth will meet at Blackdog Coffeehouse at 7am starting Thursday, February 15th. The emphasis for the week in spiritual practices is “GIVE.” 

Even if you are not a LUMYouth member, we highly recommend finding ways to practice the theme of “GIVE/GIVING” in your life this week. 

NEW WEDNESDAY EVENING STUDY STARTS NEXT WEEK
“The Lives of Great Christians”

 

Starting next week, we will be launching a new Wednesday Evening class based on the lecture series, “The Lives of Great Christians.” This series takes a deeper look at the saints that have gone before us and is academic in tone. 

 

Join us on March 7th for the “Introduction – What Makes a Great Christian” video and dialog. We will meet in Room 105 from 6:30-7:30pm.
