About

Thursday Night Live is a special monthly worship service held at Lincoln Park on the third Thursday of every month. During this casual worship time, we will sing some songs, say some prayers, hear some devotions, and join in fellowship with one another. This is a great opportunity for anyone who cannot attend worship on Sunday mornings, or for anyone who would like to supplement their weekly worship with a new experience in a different setting.

June 2017 Mission Trip

During the week of June 4–10, 2017, Lincoln Park UMC will be taking a trip to Tarboro, North Carolina, to help families who are still recovering from hurricanes and flooding over the past several years. Chances are we will be helping to demolish and/or restore homes. Tasks could include: demolition, cleaning, laying tile and/or flooring, studding walls and installing insulation, dry walling, spackling, painting, etc.

Brian Hibshman, a member of Mohnton UMC, general contractor, and veteran of numerous work trips, has graciously agreed to lead our expedition.

I can personally attest to the blessing which comes through these kinds of mission trips to help others. While brief and sometimes challenging, they can be life transforming.

The cost of this one week trip will be between $250–$350. This includes everything: travel, lodging, food, and supplies for our project. I’m hoping to have around twelve volunteers. If you are interested, please contact me.

Monday Morning Bible Study

bible_graphicFrom Pastor Dave McMillan

Our Monday morning Bible Study meets from 11am–12 noon in the Church Library in the Perkins Education Building.

Every Monday morning, throughout the year (September–June), we read through one book of the Bible at a time attempting to understand and apply the Living Word to our everyday lives.

We are currently reading and discussing the gospel of Luke. Everyone’s invited to a lively time of reflection, questions, and discussion.

Come and join us!
