Weekly Newsletter–May 26

 
new & upcoming at LUMC!
 
 
A Word From Pastor Ezekiel:
FRIENDS AND FAMILY DAY | May 30
 
God is our creator, yes. But He is also our closest Friend, and He longs for us to experience His friendship. There is nothing in the world like the warmth and comfort of friends and family. They are blessings from God that hold us up when we feel that we cannot walk alone. It is with this sentiment in mind that I cordially invite you to join us on Sunday, May 30, for Family and Friends Day at Lenexa United Methodist Church. Invite a neighbor, friend, or a family member to join you for worship on the special Sunday. At the 9:00 and 10:30 am services, we will enjoy some Gospel music from the men’s trio: Craig Dillavou, Wayne Dothage, and Keith Stokes, accompanied by Ann Foster. Our regular 9:00 and 10:30 musicians will get a well-deserved week off.

The Youth will be volunteering at the Lenexa Hy-Vee at 87th & Pflumm on Saturday, June 5 to help support childhood cancer research. Be sure to stop by and enjoy a lemonade!
 
 
WEEK OF FUN
 
The youth will be welcoming our new 6th graders by participating in a fun activity each day from June 7–June 11. Check out the flyers around the church or contact Teila Creekmore for more information and details. We hope your youth & their friends can make it! It’ll be a blast!

this Sunday’s worship
 
MAY 30
TRINITY SUNDAY / PEACE WITH JUSTICE SUNDAY
 
“What a Friend We Have In Jesus!”
Genesis 1:26-27, 2:18; John 15:9-14
 
The Trinity we worship is God the Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit. When we are not reflecting God’s image as Trinity, we find the disease of loneliness destroying our communities and society.
 
Pastor Ezekiel preaching. Men’s Trio singing at 9:00 and 10:30. 
 
PEACE WITH JUSTICE SUNDAY
 
This week is Peace with Justice Sunday. This special offering helps heal a broken world locally and globally. You may give in the offering plate or online at lenexaumc.org/online-giving.
