homework help

La Plata UMC will be showing God's love by helping children in our community with their homework.  The program is called Homework Help Outreach (H20).  We will be working with children twice a week (Tuesdays and Thursdays 4:30 - 6:30 PM, starting in March.  There will be a workshop in February to help us prepare.  If you have a love of children, and want to make a difference, please consider giving of your time to this worthwhile ministry.  We are looking for adults (volunteers can bring their own children to do their homeowrk), or high school/college students.  Please contact Susan Matteson at 301-934-2288 for all the details, and see the January 4, edition of the "Grapevine" for information.


Church Callers

church callers

Rev. Jones is assembling a team of folks to make a few phone calls per week from your home to help the church keep up with many of our people who have been sick,  moved away, or just drifted away.  We want to reach out to them and show we care.  If you'd like to help please call the church office at 301-934-2288.


Join us at 8:30

cafe worshipOur Cafe Worship service has proven so popular that we have made it a permanent additon to our worship shcedule.  This unique worship opportunity replaces our previous "Early Service".  Enjoy worship in a casual atmosphere in our fellowship hall.  You can have coffee, donuts, pastries, and more while participating in a meaningful worship service that will have the same message and scripture as the 11:00 AM service.  Don't like to sing, then this is the service for you.  Come enjoy and worship the Lord.
