We are a dynamic, positive congregation that seeks to make disciples of Jesus Christ by proclaiming the good news of God's grace and thus seeking the fulfillment of God's reign and realm in the world. We are a warm family of believers who welcome you to join our faith family and begin to experience God's grace in your life.
We at Lansdale United Methodist Church are deeply rooted in the Christian tradition with a heritage of faith in experiencing both a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and a communal expression of compassion for others. All of this is based on the foundational belief in the gift of prayer that sustains us as individuals and as a church. We seek to know God's will and express that will in disciplined lives of faith through worship, Bible study and Christian education, financial giving, talents, time and service.

We are excited to let you know that plans are under way for this year’s UMC #GivingTuesday!
On December 2, you can extend the spirit of giving thanks into the Advent season by participating in UMC #GivingTuesday. Every gift made online through The Advance at www.umcmission.org/give on Dec. 2 will be matched up to $1 million.*
*Global Ministries will allocate the matching funds dollar for dollar up to the first $1 million in gifts to Advance projects received online on Dec. 2 between 12 a.m. and 11:59 p.m. EST. A maximum of $2,500 per individual gift to a project will be dispersed as matching funds. A project may receive a maximum of $25,000 in matching funds.
Last year on UMC #GivingTuesday, United Methodists collectively raised a record $6.5 million on line in through The Advance. 11,000 individuals and churches in 34 countries gave more than 16,300 gifts to mission and ministries they believe in. It was a wonderful sign of commitment and extravagant generosity, maximizing the impact of thousands of United Methodists coming together on one day to transform the world.
UMC #GivingTuesday is part of an international movement to extend the spirit of giving thanks into the Advent season. It offers an opportunity to start off the holiday season by giving instead of getting by supporting organizations that are transforming the world.

Our first Native American Ministries Day on November 1, 2014, featured a movie, Running Brave, the inspirational story of Native American Billy Mills who won a gold medal in the 1964 Olympics, followed by a meal of Native American dishes. During the movie the audience enjoyed popcorn from Red Lake Nation Foods and afterward ate a meal of wild rice soup (also from Red Lake Nation Foods), Indian tacos, corn pudding, and apple-cranberry dessert. Sassafras tea and coffee from Thunder Island Coffee Roasters were also served.
At the 2008 and 2012 General Conference, our denomination affirmed the following Four Focus Areas. This is how OUR Church is carrying out these Four Focus Areas:
I. Creating New Places for New People and Revitalizing Existing Congregations
II. Developing Principled Christian Leaders
