The Leland Community United Methodist Church has a number of committees and task forces for members of the congregation to volunteer their time and talents and to work together in faith, living out the mission and vision of the church. Our committees are a great way to be involved with the church. You will meet new friends, and use your talents to serve the community. Contact the church office (231-256-9161). We would love to have you become a part of our mission.
The Church Council functions as a board of elders, overseeing the operation and financial condition of the congregation. It works collaboratively with the Pastor to set the direction and activities of the Church. The Council is comprised of representatives of key committees and a few at large members.
The Hospitality Team is a vital part of our church. The team is made up of volunteers who provide receptions for families following funerals and memorial services. We strive to create a warm and welcoming environment for our families following our Worship services during our Friendship Coffee hour in the Fellowship Hall. Members of our team often are working behind the scenes at LCUMC. In addition, the Hospitality Team hosts our annual Teacher Appreciation Luncheon for Leland Public School and the Leelanau Children’s Center. Connie Nelson is the person to contact via the church office if you would like to volunteer or assist to provide refreshments to the congregation.
Missions & Outreach
Our Music Ministry is led by Margaret Bell. Margaret is inspired to share her love of music by leading the Sanctuary Choir and planning special music to enhance worship. Learn more about our Music Ministry here.
“Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God’s grace in its various forms.” (1 Peter 4:10)
Congregational Care is a group works closely with the church staff to make a connection with folks who may need expressions of support. This includes those facing or recovering from surgery, those who are ill, home bound, grieving, or experiencing some difficulty. The committee writes notes, sends cards, and makes phone calls to touch base. We visit our members in nursing homes. We work with the Hospitality Committee to establish meal trains and get the word out when members are in need. We meet once a month and always have coffee and a bite of something wonderful to sustain us. Contact Betty Leanderson through the church office with any questions.
Led by the Pastor, the Worship Team assists with prayer, planning, vision and hands-on help in worship, supported by the Director of Music.
