To be Disciples - To make Disciples.
Some time ago, I found that my home church in N.C. had started mailing prayer cards to those whose names were listed on the church's prayer list. This appealed to me and I have started my own prayer card mission.
If you have a friend or relative, (doesn't have to be a member of our church), send me their name and address and I will be happy to send out a card.
We can help others, even if we do not know them, by praying for them in their times of need and please pray for me in this mission I have chosen.

Missions update/ Tornado Relief (From the April 27, 2011 Tornado)
Lester Memorial UMC has made significant response to the tornado disaster that ravaged much of Alabama. In addition to significant financial donations to UMCOR and local needs, LMUMC has sent out 10 work teams during the month of May to the following locations; Upper Sand Mountain Parrish, the North Alabama Conference disaster warehouse in Decatur, the Arab Rec. center, Blountsville UMC, Tuscaloosa, Clean-up and debris removal teams to Arab, Blountsville and Guntersville.
There is still much to do in the affected areas. An article in the Birmingham News indicated that the number of volunteers is starting to fall off. If you would like to be part of a team or lead a team please contact the LMUMC church office. The staff can get you connected with a place to participate.
