Meet Our Staff

Through the Lakewood United Methodist Trustees, are available to LUMC families for the 2021 summer programs at Wesley Woods. A variety of programs for children and teens are being held from early June through July. Our goal is to provide scholarships to help cover some of the camp cost and to encourage our youth to attend camp. Scholarship applications can be obtained by contacting Chuck Brown at ChowleeB53@gmail.com  (814-651-2356) or Janet Coon at secretary@lakewooderie.org (814-833-4131). Completed applications must be returned no later than May 20th for review by the Trustees. For more details and registration information, go to https://www.wesleywoods.com.


Holy Communion

(Now cancelled Until Further Notice)

Holy Communion will not be celebrated on until further notice.  When it is celebrated, pre-packaged communion “kits” are placed in plastic bags and people will pick up their personal communion before the service. We will then consecrate the elements later in the service and receive together. There will be a trash can to collect the packaging after the service. Prayer and anointing will not be offered until the Covid – 19 crisis is over.

Bible study during Lent. Rev. Lewis will offer a Zoom class beginning Monday, February 22nd at 7pm and ending Monday, March 29th. Six sessions. Please let the pastor know that you are interested so that he can get you a study guide and send you the email link to the Zoom meetings.
