Ministries

Ministry at Lyttleton Street UMCOur ministries are vital to our existence at Lyttleton Street United Methodist Church. Our purpose is to share in Christ’s love both in the congregation and abroad. We accomplish this by service to our neighbors. The United Methodist Church has made it a stated goal to say that “the mission of the Church is to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.”All Christians are called to ministry.

We must reach out and welcome people to our church. We must then aid them in their relationship with God and nurture them in Christian living. When the time is right, we support them in ministry by providing the resources necessary to accomplish their tasks.

Lyttleton Street UMC is actively involved in the community, and we have a wide range of ministries available.

Lyttleton Learning Place (LLP) is a special ministry offered by Lyttleton Street UMC where children can thrive in a safe Christian environment committed to quality care and support.

Our church also boasts a vibrant music ministry full of opportunities to worship God through children’s and adult choirs. Music is essential to our culture at Lyttleton Street UMC, so we have a devoted Director of Music to lead our various choirs. We also have an active youth ministry, called UMYF, where sixth through twelfth graders can meet for fellowship, fun, and faith. We have many activities such as Sunday School, Children’s Church, Vacation Bible School, and other fun times in our children’s ministry.

Not to leave out the adults, our United Methodist Women are active and engaged here at Lyttleton Street UMC. We offer Sunday School for all adults, and opportunities abound for men, women, and children to serve and worship the Lord together.

Perhaps the most important element at Lyttleton Street UMC are our missions. We have a number of ways that you can serve the church, the community, and the world. These opportunities begin with service projects like WARM and Salkehatchie where we help weatherize or repair homes to meet the basic needs of people who need the help. We are active in providing Sacks of Love at a local school, and we support Food For the Soul, a local soup kitchen and homeless shelter. We also work closely with Habitat for Humanity to build homes and provide shelter. We provide support to CCM, which is a cooperative program that supports all of Kershaw County. And last, but certainly not least, we are globally active with UMVIM, which lets us send members abroad to meet special needs. This listing is by no means exhaustive, and we are always open to other opportunities to help those in need and demonstrate the love of Jesus Christ.
