Good Afternoon LUMC,

As I enter the second month of serving here at Louisburg UMC, I want to again thank-you for taking the time to stop and talk with me and letting me get to know all of you!  

All students, taff, administrators, teachers, support help are encouraged to bring your back-pack/bag to service for the annual Blessing of the Backpacks.  We'll be offering a specific prayer and blessings on you as the new school year begins.

There are quite a few birthdays for folks in church this month but one in particular will be turning 96!  Would you all bring a card addressed to Dr. John Clarke and leave it in the basket on the connection desk in the lobby?  What a celebration it'll be when he celebrates his birthday this Tuesday!

This weekend at 8:30, 10:30, or online, the sermon will be "The Forgotten Ways" with scripture from John 20: 19-23.  Many thanks to the following for serving in the following roles: Scripture readers include Pastor Ed during 1st service & Jon Smith during 2nd service.  Communion servers include Diane Chastain at 1st service. Front door greeters include Mike Mesh at 1st service, Ron Strand & John Heien at 2nd service. Sanctuary greeters include Sally Greene & Melissa Schmollinger at 2nd service.  Acolytes include Kay Heien at 1st service.

Please reply back:

if your child can be an acolyte at 2nd service;

if you will SERVE communion at 2nd service,

if you would be a sanctuary greeter at 1st service,

if you would be a lobby greeter either at 1st or 2nd service

There is an immediate, great need I hope our church can fill quickly.  A family has fallen on hard times and is in need of school clothes.  If you can help, please reply to us via our church text: 913-521-5673. School begins Tuesday for Louisburg.

 9 year old BOY: boy size 14 clothes, man size 5 shoes
 8 year old BOY: boy size 8 clothes, size 3 youth shoes
In addition, there is a 3 year old GIRL who wears size 5T clothes.

Please let me know when you are able to help read scripture, serve communion, acolyte, greet, etc.  I'd really like to have as many folks helping as possible!   

Blessings on you all,

Pastor Shane
