Helping Those in Need
Sunday, October 30, began the “Being the Church” initiative at Luverne United Methodist Church. Church members gathered at 8:00 am to worship in service, by uniting their skills and efforts to build a two-tiered ramp for a Luverne resident in need.
Chris Johnston headed up the team as project foreman. Paul Nichols, Jim Jackson and Randy Watts provided experienced carpentry and tools, and with the help of Melissa Mikul, Alethea Gammage, Frances Ackerman, Peyton and Miley Taylor and Sydney McIntosh, they completed the project in time to return to Luverne United Methodist Church for a special Sunday worship service led by the Troy University Wesley Foundation, a group of gifted singers and musicians led by Rev. Elaine Brown.
“Being the Church” is the vision of Rev. Dr. Robert C. Yawn, pastor of Luverne United Methodist Church, through which church members minister directly to the needs of the community. Every fifth Sunday will find LUMC members in the community working on various projects in cooperation with OCAP.
