“Movie with the Pastor” is a new program that we are starting for this program year.We have been asked by some children if we could have a Bible Study outside of Sunday school that is designed specifically for children.We wanted to be sure to do that, but we wanted to take it a step further.And so, during “Movie with the Pastor,” children kindergarten – 5th grade are invited (parents too, if you’d like) to come and enjoy an age-appropriate movie.When the movie ends, the children will enjoy a pizza lunch while they have a fun discussion with the pastor about the movie, its faith-themes, and what the Bible says about those themes.Children will be dismissed to their parents/guardians promptly at 1:30pm.Children are invited to bring their Bibles, but we’ll have extras in case they’re needed.

Mission Fundraiser: Bake Sale -- Sunday, September 21, 2014
Following the church service on this coming Sunday, we’re going to be inviting everyone to come and purchase some tasty treats and sweets as we begin to raise money for various mission projects. Any and all donations of baked goods are more than welcome! Thank you for your support. We can’t wait to see you there!
“Rake-and-Run” and Cider Mill trip -- Saturday, October 18, 2014
All youth, grades 6th-12th, are invited to join us for our first youth mission project: the “Rake-and-Run.” At 10am, we will meet here at Laingsburg UMC where we will begin our mission of raking leaves from various yards throughout town. After all, when we’re helping neighbors, we’re showing God’s love! At noon, we’ll gather back at the church for lunch until 1pm, and then head out for Uncle John’s Cider Mill. Finally, we will arrive back at the church by 6pm. For the cider mill, youth will likely need $10-20 depending on the activities they would like to do. You may bring other spending money if you’d like. (If cost is a problem, please don’t let it keep you from coming. Just let the youth leaders know).
“Trunk-or-Treat” -- Friday, October 31, 2014
This year, the youth have decided to have a Youth Group trunk that is their own at Laingsburg UMC’s annual “Trunk-or-Treat” event. We will spend time leading up to Halloween planning and preparing themed decorations, and will gather at the church at 5:30pm to put any finishing touches on the youth trunk. All youth are welcome to help with this great outreach event!
“Winterfest” Float Building Party -- Date TBD
This year for Laingsburg’s “Winterfest” (December 6, 2014), the youth have decided that they want to enter a float into the parade.

Keep an eye out for a date and more information.
