As we “wait in joyful anticipation,” the LUM board members and staff have time to reflect. At this time of year, our thoughts turn gratefully to those whose have contributed to another successful year at LUM. There is no time more fitting to say “Thank You” to each and every one of our faithful supporters. Whether you give of your time, talent or treasure — LUM could not survive without your love and encouragement. LUM is humbled by your generosity.
In return for your support, LUM pledges to be true to our mission — lifting up families, encouraging and educating children, and offering hope to the entire community through our hard work, service to others, and good example.
Thank you again. LUM wishes you and your family peace, happiness, and a blessed holiday season. Have a Merry Christmas!
LUM Mission Statement
Poverty is the greatest thief. More than depriving a neighbor of food or shelter or warmth, it steals away hope. While other thieves may take away the past, poverty steals the future and self-respect.
The Lafayette Urban Ministry is in the business of restoring human dignity. Through voluntary efforts and contributions we give back the hope, the future, the self-respect, which all God’s people need and deserve.
Ours is a Christian ministry that welcomes congregations and people of all faiths. We give witness to God’s saving love and prophetic power by loving neighbors, seeking justice, empowering the least among us, and renewing the Church’s social ministry.
An angel of the Lord stood over them and the glory of the Lord shone round them. They were terrified, but the angel said, ‘Do not be afraid. Look, I bring you news of great joy, a joy to be shared by the whole people. Today in the town of David a Saviour has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord. (Luke 2:9-11)
