Announcements

Masks now required for all at Sunday services & Coffee Hour cancelled

We have been made aware a fellow parishioner who attended the 9/19/21 service who had been fully vaccinated contracted Convid-19 and will have an infusion. If you are having any flu or cold like symptoms please get tested as soon as possible. In an effort to keep everyone safe, Marcus consulted with some of the leadership team and decided to require masks be worn by everyone attending the church services starting 9/26/21. Please continue to welcome our guests and visit with each other outside on church grounds. We have cancelled coffee hour until further notice all for our safety.

LTUMC App for your Smart Phone

We are excited to announce we have the LTUMC app up and running for your smart phone.  It is available for both iPhone and Android phones.  Simply search "Lake Toxaway UMC" in the App Store or the Play Store.

Push notifications is now active on both iPhone and Android phones. The messages will go out to anyone who has the app installed.  This will allow Marcus or Saunders to send a message on changes for services with inclement weather etc. We do not plan to use this feature often but it should be helpful for all.  With the iPhones you are given the option to opt out of receiving notifications when you install the app.  We ask you do not opt out.
