The March 2 storm and its impact

As of about 12:30 pm on Saturday, the meetinghouse is still without power. We expect service to be restored soon. The building is intact. We lost several trees around the property, with the most serious damage being a tree hitting the ramp and steps leading away from the meeting room and to the shed. Otherwise the building is intact. Stay tuned for further announcements.

The 2018 LVMM Retreat Committee is forming!

LVMM will be gathering as a community of faith and joy at Spruce Lake Retreat Center in Canadensis, Pennsylvania (heart of the Poconos!) for its biennial retreat April 20-22, 2018. We’re looking for people interested in planning the programming we’ll enjoy when gathered together. 

For those of you who did not attend in 2016 or who are unfamiliar with the retreat center, it’s a wonderful place to spend extended time with members of our community. We’ll eat together, take walks, listen to stories, and participate in activities which deepen and strengthen our faith. 

Accommodations are comfortable and the food is hearty and served in a dining room overlooking the lake itself. We and Spruce Lake are prepared to accommodate sleeping and dietary needs to ensure everyone can participate. 

Most of the cost of the retreat is covered by the community. Scholarships are available to ensure everyone who is available can take part.
