Lewistown is a very small community with two churches, a fire company, and an elementary school, but the folks in and around Lewistown have huge hearts and care about one another. The members of the Lewistown United Methodist Church recently recognized the Lewistown District Volunteer Fire Company for their courage, service, and commitment as they protect and serve their neighbors. Pastor Katy Mossburg of the Lewistown United Methodist Church offered blessings upon the first responders and the equipment, after which all enjoyed a good time of food and fellowship.

Lewistown UMC Prays 4 You. Those are the words on the new community prayer box in front of the Lewistown United Methodist Church (LUMC). Do you know someone who needs extra prayers right now, maybe a friend or a family member or even you? Members of the Lewistown United Methodist Church want to pray for your special needs. LUMC Pastor Katy Mossburg said, “We want people to know we are here for them and to help them be connected to God.” 

The locked prayer box is prominently displayed in front of the church at 11032 Hessong Bridge Road; pen and paper are provided. Requests are confidential and anonymous, unless you would like to be contacted for a follow-up call or visit.

Pastor Katy collects the prayer requests daily and sends them to members of the prayer chain who are dedicated to praying for the needs of the community. Prayers can also be requested by sending an email to Prayer shawls are also available; shawls are prayed over and blessed when made and presented to the recipient with a prayer and an additional blessing. Pastor Katy said, “It is like wrapping yourself up in a big hug from God.”
