Lots to look forward to this Season starting this Sunday.

We hope you can join us.


Dec. 23rd at the 9AM Worship, our pick-up choir will be performing a special musical selection as we celebrate the last Sunday of Advent. Come as they turn up the volume on our time of waiting in these final days before Christmas.

December 24th, 4:30 PM. A traditional candlelight Christmas Eve celebration filled with the music and stories that remind us of Christ's dwelling among us. We will gather as the sun sets and carry Christ's light out in to the night

with joy and thanksgiving.

December 24th, 11PM. We will gather together with the shepherds standing watch for the first sign of the christ child among us. The setting will be more intimate, and the order of service more casual. We will sing, pray, and share stories together. We'll greet the earliest minutes of Christmas mornign with wonder & joy.


We at Lena UMC wish you all a

Very Blessed Christmas Season.

Hymnal

 



 

  UMC provides music for a monthly hymn sing at Lena Living Center. Although   it is a ministry of the church, members of other area congregations also help out on the fourth Tuesday of each month. Residents seem to enjoy the singing and  the friendly conversation between hymns.

 

   From Lena UMC, those who sing or help residents during the hymn sing include, as work and travel allow, Vera Kempel, Carol and Bob Buss,
Wayne Benson, Rose Black, Gary Rich, Jackie Edler and Larry Nelson. Vera, Judy, and Carol usually have devotional material to share with the residents.

 

   Other area residents who make the ministry possible include Judy Rampenthal, who always has a story to share. Her mother, Joyce Scheider, is the accompanist. Jerilyn Strohecker has helped so much by stepping in to accompany the singers when Joyce is unable to attend the hymn sing.

 

 If you can find 45 minutes of time one morning a month to help with this music ministry, please contact Vera Kempel or call the church office. We have a good time, and so would you.

Time with God.

Did you know that a Devotion is just a click or a dial away? You can get a Daily Devotion by clicking on the link below, or you can call the Church at 815-369-4411 to have one read to you on the phone. Either way,  you are connecting with God and getting a
Spiritual Uplift for the day.
