The six weeks before Easter is called the "Lenten Season". It is
a time to focus on the suffering, death and resurrection of our
Savior, Jesus Christ. The word "lent" means "lengthen" and stands
for that time in spring when the days grow longer.
The original period of Lent was 40 hours. It was spent fasting
to commemorate the suffering of Christ and the 40 hours He spent in
the tomb. In the early 3rd century, Lent was lengthened to 6 days.
About 800 AD it was changed to 40 days. Lent starts on Ash
Wednesday, 40 days before Easter but Sundays are not included in
those 40 days. Those 40 days correspond with Christs 40 days in the
Shrove Tuesday, the day before Ash Wednesday, is celebrated in
many parts of the world with feasting and takes its name from
"shriving" or forgiving sins. The FRENCH call it "Mardi Gras". (I
never understood why Lansdales has a Holiday parade called Mardi
Gras in November.) The Germans call it "Fausching". The feasting
comes from the custom of using up household fats prior to the 40
days of Lenten fasting, when no fat is used.
The Lenten season is intentionally set aside for examination,
instruction, repentance and prayer. This season is one of
preparation for all the people of God. It is written in Galatians
6:3-5, For if anyone thinks himself to be something, when he is
nothing, he deceives himself. But let each one examine his own
work, and then he will have rejoicing in himself alone, and not in
another. For each one shall bear his own load.
As we enter the Lenten Season, let us examine ourselves and draw
closer to His presence and grace by intensifying our prayer time,
by increasing our Bible reading, by improving our worship
attendance, and by multiplying our fellowship with one another. Let
Gods grace grow in you and flow through you. It will be

Greetings in the Name of Jesus Christ,
I hope you are as excited as I am by the news that our
Fulfilling the Covenant Capital Campaign has not only reached but
exceeded our $3 million goal! This is an important milestone in the
history of our Annual Conference. It is our first capital campaign
to reach its goal.
To all of you who made pledge commitments I want to extend my
heartfelt appreciation. Thank you for your willingness to
participate in this endeavor and for your sacrificial stewardship
to ensure that our local churches might be spared the burden of
increased payments to the Pre-82 Retired Clergy Pension
Your sacrifice means that significant ministries will not be
further hampered or diminished because of this obligation. And it
will help to ensure that the liability may be completely paid off
by our 2021 schedule, if not before.
Again, thank you, thank you, thank you for your selfless
generosity and your commitment to faithful stewardship of God's
abundant gifts. I rejoice in our ministry together, inspired by
Jesus Christ and manifested through our local churches. Sincerely,
Bishop Peggy Johnson

The UMC website
The United Methodist Church announces that UMC.org, the
denomination's official website, has gotten a makeover.
Who are we? What do we believe? How do we serve? What's going
on? The new UMC.org makes finding information and staying
in-the-know more user-friendly with improved search capabilities --
and it's mobile friendly too!
UMC.org still has all the award-winning stories and photos
you're used to seeing, but now it will be more about your own
spiritual journey - a place to help you navigate faith, giving,
life issues and what it means to be a United Methodist.
Be sure to check it out.
Current Food Needs
While Manna appreciates all donations, the following goods are
especially needed right now: Canned Fruit (peaches, pears, fruit
cocktail, pineapple, mandarin oranges, etc) Canned Meats (tuna,
chicken, turkey, chili, beef stew, chicken dumpling, salmon, spam)
Fresh produce: Vegetables and fruits (bananas, apples)
And the Survey Said.. Thanks to everyone who took the time to
complete the 2014 LUMC Goals Survey. We received a total of
59 surveys. You have spoken loud and clear about what you as the
members of the church would like us to focus on in the upcoming
months and we appreciate your input.
Church Council met the other night to review the results and we
are happy to report we will be focusing on the following key areas
Developing a process for engaging visitors.
Establish a new young adult group (post-college and
Increase church advertising and promotion through social media,
a digital sign and other means.
Increase attendance at the Praise Service by 20% of the current
Another goal also received a high number of votes and that was
to increase church membership by 20 members. We agreed to monitor
this over the course of the year but we felt this will be a RESULT
of doing all the other things we have prioritized over the course
of the year.
We also received a number of write-in comments on the survey and
we have logged and discussed each of these. Church Council
leadership all agreed that we also need to focus on Sunday school
growth, attendance and the actual facilities that we have for our
childrens Sunday School. This will be our 5th goal.
As one of the leaders of this church I am SO encouraged by the
survey and by the growing excitement and creativity I see in many
of our members. I believe that 2014 will be an awesome year:
already, members have come to us with additional ideas and an offer
to start a new small group. Please keep our church in prayer and
consider what you might do to help us achieve our goals. I have
seen many new faces enter our doors and I am praying we can get
them engaged in the life of our church.
Please consider doing something for our church that you have
never done before. Look for opportunities for service that fit into
your busy schedule. When God calls you to do something, He will
find a way for you to do it. Remember the Power of One (each one of
us) working together as a team is unstoppable!! Look for
opportunities that you see advertised in the bulletin, Circuit
Rider, on the bulletin board and many other ways. Or feel free to
talk to Pastor Max or any Church Council member about ways that you
can become involved.

Nursery News - March 2014
Welcome to all the newborns born in the past couple of months. I
would like to invite you to our church nursery.
My name is Donna Fritz and I have been a member here for over 45
years, and the nursery director for almost two years. I have had
childcare experience teaching preschool, and after receiving a
certificate from the Sheffield School for Nannies I helped raise
two children for nine years. Two years ago I received my CDA (Child
Development Associate credential) from Manor College. I will be
renewing my CPR and First Aid Training very soon. Working with
children and seeing them grow and learn is very rewarding to me. I
hope to see more infants, toddlers and children come soon to our
nursery. Sunday morning hours are 8:45A.M. 12:45P.M.

As I sit here in February looking out at all the snow, its hard
to believe that March, and Spring are just about a month away. It
cant come quick enough for me. I love the beginning of
Spring-seeing the bulbs start to sprout, and buds start to appear
on the trees. The earth is coming back to life after a very long,
very snowy winter.
March also begins the season of Lent. Lent is a time of
preparation for Easter. Christians use this time to re-evaluate
their relationship with God, often choosing to give up something,
or to volunteer and give of themselves for others. The Sunday
School will be using this season to support a very special Lenten
Mission Project. This year our chosen project is the Haiti Hot
Lunch Program. The Hot Lunch program provides Children in schools
operated by the Methodist Church of Haiti with hot, nutritional
meals, that many children otherwise would not receive. Before this
program was started, most children did not eat a meal at school.
This program ensures access to nutritional meals, cooked on-site,
to provide energy for them to learn throughout the day. More
information will be presented on Sunday, March 9th, during the
Sunday School time and both Church Services.
Confirmation Class is going strong with 7 young adults meeting
each week during the Sunday School time. On Sunday, February 8, the
students were presented with new Bibles during the worship
services. These Bibles are to be used as they prepare for
Confirmation and joining the church. The students in the class
Jason Beideman, Journey Burroughs, Johnny Mowbray, Jimmy Neild,
Stephen Nwogwugwu, Dianna Perry and Owen Ranck. Please pray and
support these young adults as they prepare to dedicate their lives
to the Lord and to the church.
I wish you all a wonderful March. Please come on out to Sunday
School. There are a lot of fun things going on and we want you and
your children to be a part of it!!

G.Y.M. Gods Youth in Motion
The Youth are just finishing our latest unit discussing
Christmasno I did not stutter. I said Christmas. Christmas
approaches so quickly and the season is so full of activities that
we never actually get an opportunity to discuss the components of
the story of Christmas. Weve discussed Mary and Joseph and their
relationship and most recently the Wise Men and their relationship
with Herod. With the Wise Men and Herod, the Wise Men knew of and
saw the Star. It meant hope, grace and a symbol of the Messiah to
them. To Herod, the star was a threat. A threat to his lifestyle
and his Kingdom. In this lesson we discussed how even today, this
simple lesson of the same symbol meaning different things to
different people still applies, 2,000 years later. Same
lessondifferent times. Ask your teenager!
Thank you to everyone for their support of the Youth through the
Lasagna Sale and Spaghetti Dinner. Proceeds from the two events
will go to support the Youth Musical. The Youth Musical will take
the place the weekend of March 22nd & 23rd. Well tear down the
stage and return Stringer to its normal configuration on Monday,
March 24th @ 6:30P.M.
