The vision of the Lexington United Methodist Church is to create and nurture a dynamic and fruitful congregation. Our aim is to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world through worship, small groups, and service to others. We believe in and nurture many missions in our community and through out the world.
Lexington United Methodist Church hosts a Children's Community Choir called Joyful Noise! Joyful Noise meets on Wednesdays at the church from 5:15 p.m. until 6:00 p.m. followed by our Community Supper, which everyone is invited to attend!
Children ages Kindergarten and up are welcome. Highly qualified musicians and educators will be leading this wonderful group of children.
Joyful Noise sings on the fourth Sunday of each month here at Lexington United Methodist Church and then they take their joy across the street to share song at Trinity Episcopal Church! This is a wonderful ecumenical and community gift!
Joyful Noise presents a Christmas Program/Musical Show each December and have recently performed for an East Winds District Mission Zone event.
Little ones ages 6 weeks to 35 months can experience a loving, nurturing, first church experience starting at 9:30 am. A pager system (or your own cell phone) is available to contact parents. The nursery is located in the activity center/gym on the entry level.
Our Sunday School runs every Sunday at 9:45 am following the children's time with Pastor Susan. The children (preschool - 6th grade) meet their teachers at the back of sanctuary.
We understand that some families prefer to worship together, so children of all ages are always welcome to stay through worship. Kids' activity packs are available at the entrance to the sanctuary. Children of all ages are welcome to participate in Holy Communion. Children in Sunday School return to the sanctuary to celebrate Holy Communion with their families.
Children (kindergarten age and older) are invited to "Bring the Light of Christ" into the worship space by lighting candles on the altar at the beginning of worship each Sunday. Ushers and others help prepare children to serve in worship in this way. Children who remain in worship are encouraged to "Carry the Light of Christ" out into the world as we depart at the end of each service.
Youth Ministry is ministry by and with young people between grades 5-12. Adult youth leaders help to introduce tweens and teens to a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Young people are accepted wherever they are in their faith journey.
Activities are planned to help them grow as disciples of Jesus Christ through study, prayer, retreats, mission projects and trips, service projects, and fun activities throughout the year. Youth take Holy Communion to neighboring seniors in assisted living communities, lead community Christmas Caroling, and set a model for younger children in the life of the congregation.
Youth meet Sunday evenings from 6-7:30 p.m. at the church.
Tutoring begins immediately after school every Wednesday. Enrolled children are picked up at Meyer school and walked to the church by adult volunteers. Children may also be dropped off by 3:30 p.m.
Students are greeted with an after school snack and individual lessons prepared by professional elementary school educators. Tutoring sessions last until 5:00 p.m.
Registration begins at our Back-To-School Kick-Off event. Registration forms are available from the church office. Space is limited.
For more information call the church office at 810-359-8215 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Children are also welcome to stay for Joyful Noise, the kids choir practice at 5:15 p.m.
Wednesday Night Community Dinner begins at 5:45 p.m. All are welcome! (Children must be accompanied by an adult to dinner.)
LUMC's story is as unique as each of our own stories. The beautiful thing about this story is that we are all growing in God's grace and love.
What happens when you share your story at LUMC? Your story becomes part of God's story!
And that's what community is all about-sharing what we have in ways that transform the lives of others.
There is a place for you here. There's always room for one more at the table!
A great night out Christmas Caroling to the community.
