Seeing the need: Lauren Creek UMMen build handrail for church member

By Elaine Means
GREENVILLE—The United Methodist Men of Laurel Creek United Methodist Church are mobilized for mission.
Recognizing that a senior member of the congregation needed a handrail on the steps leading to the walkway of her house, they took on the task of constructing one for her. With carpentry as a hobby and the desire to have the group accomplish one of their goals, the president, James Ramsey, designed and skillfully created a handrail for the safety of all who use
the steps at her home. At the Men’s Retreat in February, Bishop Jonathan Holston said, “God is seeking to align men in church and God has something he will use us to do that we have never dreamed of.” This project is an example of how the men at Laurel Creek UMC are living up to the calling and are a group worth being followed by the next generation of men in the church.
