LHUMC Welcoming Statement

Lake Harbor UMC is a community of faith where we welcome all in the name of Jesus Christ. We recognize that we are not of one mind on a wide range of theological and cultural issues, though we are a community of faith grounded in God’s love and grace that is active in our lives - transforming, renewing, and sustaining us. We are blessed and strengthened by the gifts and presence of a variety of people, and we believe that God uses all of us to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world. We believe that each person is a beloved child of God, and we value the sacred worth and dignity of all persons, without exception. We welcome all into membership and leadership including:

  • persons with divergent theological and political convictions, even as we seek to emphasize our connectedness and unity in Christ;
  • persons of all races, cultures, ethnicities, and socioeconomic conditions;
  • persons at all places on the spectrum of sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression;
  • persons of various ages and life experiences, and persons who are differently abled.

We seek to love one another as Christ loves us. Christ opened the table of grace to everyone, and we commit to offer one another boundless compassion and affirmation so that the reign of God might be made known “on earth as it is in heaven.”

Welcome to Lake Harbor!

Church is about community and at Lake Harbor we seek to have genuine Christian community.  God promises He will always be with us and we seek to do the same as a church family, to journey through life together, supporting and encouraging each other, laughing and crying together.  You are welcomed and invited to join us on the journey! Sunday Service Times: Sunday Service Times: We have resumed in-person worship, and we offer two worship services at 9 AM and 11 AM. We ask that everyone, regardless of vaccination status, wear a mask while coming in and out of the sanctuary or moving around in the building.  Once seated, individuals may remove their masks if they wish.  We continue to recommend that those who are not fully vaccinated wear a mask at all times. 
There are two important reminders regarding gathering together:     
  1. The Lounge will continue to be a space where masks are required for the sake of those who are more comfortable wearing masks at all times.   
  2. Masks are required for all teachers and students participating in Christian Education and Youth Group activities regardless of vaccination status.  
We continue to ask everyone to complete a health screening for attendance purposes (online or on paper) and practice physical distancing between households in the sanctuary (using every other pew).  
Please follow us on Facebook where we will be live streaming the service as well. If you have any questions, please call the church office at 231-798-2181. We will have one 10 AM service on December 26th and January 2nd.
