Lewistown UMC is participating in Samaritan’s Purse Christmas boxes and BUMP (Blackfeet United Methodist Parish) Shoeboxes. The deadline for boxes is mid-November. More information can be found at each website: Samaritan’s Purse Christmas boxes and bumpmission.com
We enjoyed a wonderful worship service with a polka band playing the hymns last month. It was so well received, we may have to make it a tradition.
We are having a fundraiser to help us pay our Mission Shares (Apportionments) which will culminate in a freewill-offering dinner on Friday, October 27th at 5:00 pm.
We support the ministries of the church through our apportioned funds, a method of giving that proportionally allocates the churchwide budget to conferences and local churches.
For United Methodists this method of giving has become a strong, generous tradition.
Together, through our connected congregations, we accomplish what no single church, district or annual conference ever could hope to do alone. In this way, each individual, each family, each congregation gives a fair share for the church’s work. We combine our prayers, presence, gifts and service to make a significant difference in the lives of God’s people.
This donation supports World Communion Sunday scholarships for graduate national and international students. Ethnic Scholarships for national and international undergraduates studying within the US and ethnic in-service training.
A great experience for everyone who could make it!
We have a trip planned for Wednesday, August 16th at 9:15 am to see the petroglyphs. The cost is $17.50 for adults, $9 for kids between 12-15, and under 12 is free. Let us know if you are planning to join us!
Every year for the past half century, at least, Lewistown UMC has had a food booth at the Central Montana Fair. Our mission is to provide healthy food and great fellowship while we minister to each other and our customers. This would not be possible without the help of so many who volunteer their time to serve, cook, make pies, and pray for our booth. We are grateful <3
Here are some things planned for this summer:
- VBS at Zion Lutheran Church is June 4-8th. Registration forms are available at church
- Annual Conference in Billings June 8-10th
- Good News Club will be visiting Bear Gulch. Call the church for more info.
