Church Pew Headshots:  Do you miss having a presence at church? Do you watch sports on tv and see those cutouts of fans and think “Hey! I should do that for church”? Well you are in luck! The Council is holding a Building Fund fundraiser with orders of such cutouts through Creasy Signs. Cost is $25 and we can use your directory picture or a picture you send us. Some parents have ordered cutouts of their children who are at college.  Some people have donated to have our shut-ins present. If you are interested please contact Pastor Jenn at 570-784-5165 or email at jparks-snyder@susumc.org or contact Beth, the church’s Administrative Assistant at 570-784-9271 or email at lightstumc@ptd.net.

He is doing much better. We are blessed by your kindness and prayers.  In Christian Love, Pastor Jenn and family

 

A big thank you to Dorothy and Eric Kocher and his landscaping workers who did a beautiful job at the church, Lighthouse, and parsonage. We are so grateful for their generosity that makes our landscape look so nice in Lightstreet. Thank you again! – Pastor Jenn and the LUMC congregation

  • Junk for Jesus! Pop the ring off soda cans and save for the Ronald McDonald House.  Recycle all other metal.  Place under the fire escape near the rear parking lot.  Please, please do not mix plastics or non-metal recycling or trash with the metal.  While all metals are recyclable, use separate bags or containers for different metals.  Make this profitable venture as easy for Doug as possible.  LUMC liaisons:  Sandy Heim for soda rings; Doug Sitler for all metal recycling.
