There are so many ways to get involved at LMC!
The “Church Mice” are a dedicated group of ladies that meet once a month to make cards. The group started in 1997 and, in addition to LMC members, includes ladies who are not members, and ladies with varying stamping experience.
The cards made by the Church Mice are sent each month to those
individuals on the church prayer list. In addition, cards are made and sent to homebound LMC members as well as those in nursing homes or
assisted living centers for Valentine’s Day, Easter, Thanksgiving and
Christmas. Cards are also made for 1st Communion, Confirmation, graduation, new baby, baptism, weddings, and MUCH more.
One more note, on average the Church Mice make approximately 1200 cards/year!
The Card Writers meet once a month to write cards to those individuals on the church prayer list. Each card includes a personal message and a bible verse that the Writers hope brings comfort to the recipient. In addition, the Card Writers assist in sending cards to LMC home-bound members and those in nursing homes or assisted living centers at special times of the year.
The Haberdashery Committee has the responsibility of decorating the church according to the church calendar. They have also been working on a landscaping project and
updating the parsonage, as well as fix-it projects around the church.
