Christ Walk

 

This Lent, instead of giving something up, try taking on a new discipline! Lena UMC will be getting fit spiritually, mentally, and physically with a new study based on the book “Christ Walk: A 40-Day Spiritual Fitness Program” by Anna Fitch Courie. The “Christ Walk” program allows us to walk the miles of various routes in the Bible during the forty days of Lent. If you are interested in participating, please contact Pastor Keri or Chris in the church office so we can set a day/time that works best for the group.

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.
