Everyone is welcome to join in for a morning of looming on July 13th from 9-noon in the Fireside room.

Invite a friend for a morning of fellowship as we weave Plarn Sleeping Mats!

Christmas in July

Our church donates to Upper Des Moines so that children may receive funds to purchase school supplies and clothing for the start of school.  Each child will receive $225 to shop for items.  

Your donations are welcomed through Breeze or with cash/check in the offering plate.  Please give in the best way you are able.  If you have questions please contact any member of the Missions team or the chair of Missions, Jennifer.

Your Input is Valued: Church Value Survey Results

Why did we do the survey? 

By Fall we would like to take a congregational vote to either select a new mission statement or stay with our current mission,  “Making Disciples, Making a Difference”.

Why do we want/need a Mission Statement?

A mission statement helps guide decisions and priorities for SLUMC & tells the community what we’re working towards.

If you were not able to join in the discussion about the Church Value Survey on May 19, we would value your input and/or work with friends or family:

  • Please take a copy of the survey results (available at the Welcome Desk in the Narthex):
  • Please size each question down to two words which you think best reflect the survey answers.
  • Write your two words on a sticky note (also on the Welcome Table).
  • Add your notes to the large posters (one with each question) on the walls of Paige Hall, place them in the offering plate, or drop them off in the office.
  • Before Fall, we will ask interested people to help use the words on the posters to develop suggested Mission Statements to share with the congregation.
