The Loudonville United Methodist Church
Listen to Our Worship Service on Your Phone!
Loudonville UMC was awarded a United Methodist Communications grant that allows us to share our worship service by phone. Weekly worship services will be posted by noon Mondays. Simply dial from any phone 419-920-8070 to listen to Sunday's worship service in its entirety.
Most recordings will be about 30 minutes long, so call when you can kick back, sip a cup of coffee, and worship with us. And let your friends know! Anyone can call to listen--it's free for them (other than connection time, if they're calling on a metered phone plan) and free for us for the duration of our grant.
Contact the Office if you have any questions or feedback.
Worship Service January 17, 2020
January 12, 2021 Reopening Task Force Update
Dear Church Family,
As we continue into the new year, we continue to see the numbers of those stricken with COVID-19 rising. By now, most of us know someone personally who is affected by this virus. We are experiencing difficult times, but we live with the assurance that God is with us. Jesus said in Matthew 28:20, “I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
The Re-opening Task Force continues to monitor the numbers in Ashland County. From January 4th through the 11th, our county saw an increase of 212 cases, and we remain in the Red Level. With that in mind, the Loudonville United Methodist Church will continue worshiping online without any indoor, in-person worship services through February 7th, at which time we, the Task Force, will meet to determine if changes should or will be in order.
A virtual worship service will continue to be made available each Sunday on our Facebook page and website. Also, each worship service will be broadcast on 87.9 FM so that you can park close to the church and listen. We are incorporating a phone line for members to call and listen to the service for those who do not have internet access. We received a grant for this service and will try it for a month to see how well it works.
All indoor church events are canceled except the community dinners to continue to support the area’s needs.
Reopening Task Force
Pastor Kenn Curren
Join us February 1st, 5-6:30pm, for dinner! On the menu, warm, hearty bean soup, cornbread, and apples.
Meals will be packaged at the time of pick-up. Simply drive up to the church, tell the runner how many people you're feeding, and a family-sized meal will be brought to your waiting vehicle! Meals are free, but donations are gladly accepted.
We observe the guidelines from the US Dept. of Agriculture, which include taking meals to those who come for them in their cars. Persons will be asked not to leave their cars so that they will not have the opportunity to violate the social distancing we are trying to maintain. We will keep the number of volunteers to a minimum, in order to further maintain as much social distancing as possible.
Meals are available the first and third Mondays, from 5-6:30pm. (NOTE: October's first meal will be Wednesday, October 6th, for Loudonville Fair, instead of the first Monday, from 5-6:30pm.) No reservations or advance orders are necessary, just stop by the church to pick up a hot, delicious, hand-prepared meal!
Contact the church office with questions at 419-994-4939 Monday through Thursday from 9am to noon, or see our Facebook page or posts to this page for event information.
