COVID-19 UPDATE

Updated 4/26/2020

 

As we continue to learn more about the spread of COVID-19 and recognize its potential impact on our community in the days ahead, we want to update you on a few matters related to this situation as they pertain to Lithopolis United Methodist Church.

In light of Governor DeWine's most recent announcement as well as recommendations from the West Ohio United Methodist District Office, we have decided to cancel all church gatherings and activities at this time.  This includes all worship services, groups, and church office hours.  Although we may not be able to gather together physically, here are some key ways you can still stay connected to LUMC:

CHILDREN'S MINISTRY

Below is a link to our Children's Ministry resources so families can still discuss each week's lesson together. These include activities that can be used throughout the week - which may prove to be a lifesaver during school closings!  

SERMONS

Our sermons will be available each week on Sundays.  You can watch the video or listen to our podcast.

SMALL GROUPS

We are moving towards offering virtual small groups that will meet online through the week.  You'll need access to either a computer or smart phone in order to video chat with a group.  This is a great way to still stay connected, pray for one another, and grow in your faith while we have to remain at home.  

BEING A COMMUNITY

Although the coronavirus is preventing us from gathering together as a church family as often as we'd like, we still want to find a way to connect with one another during this time of need. Many in our congregation may find it challenging to meet daily needs while having to limit social contact. On the other hand, others may have the ability to help meet these needs. We want to help connect one another so that we can still be the caring community we all have come to love.

PRAYER REQUESTS

How can we be praying for you this week?  Requests can be confidential or added to our prayer chain.  We'd love to be praying with you for your concerns.

UPCOMING EVENTS

All activities are CANCELLED.   As much as we desire our in-person ministries to continue, we understand the importance of our social responsibility to keep everyone safe and healthy.  We'll continue to creatively explore ways to stay connected through technology and other means of communication.  

While these are challenging and uncertain circumstances, we continue to believe the Lord calls us to be light and love to those around us. And in spite of these present realities, we will continue to invite people to be in relationship with Jesus so lives and communities are changed.
