Adult Study: 11th Hour

11th HourSee the most current bulletin for 11th Hour meeting topics.

In January 2016, we held a series of Open Meetings looking towards the future of LUMC.  We read Real Good Church: How Our Church Came Back from the Dead, and Yours Can, Too by Molly Phinney Baskette.  Complete notes from the three discussions are posted below.
