These bi-weekly UPDATES are shared so that leaders and congregations are aware of events and information taking place in LMC, agencies, fraternal organizations, congregations, and the broader church. These announcements are for your information and to share with others in your congregation through email (below is the link), weekly bulletin, monthly newsletter, Sunday morning announcements, church website, or Facebook. Use your discretion and share what your congregation will find helpful.
Join other pastors and spouses who are leading and inspiring others to reclaim the mission of radical hospitality and healing presence in their communities. This is the fifth year of the retreat.

Landis Communities is excited to share our new logo. With roots and trunk comprised of human figures, the trees in the new logo communicate that Landis Communities is more than a series of buildings, rather it is a fellowship of individuals working together to build and sustain life-giving values. The leaves are separate but connected by shape and proximity, emphasizing the way Landis Communities is sustained by diversity and community partnerships. You can learn more about this logo and how all the logos from Landis Communities will be interconnected can be found here http://www.landiscommunities.org/new-brand/

Landis Communities is committed to offering many options because retirement does not follow a one-size-fits-all mentality. Envisioning the goals that are most important and unique to you is essential for planning. Please consider attending this seminar to learn ways persons age 40-85 can plan for future care—as well as the key differences in a long-term care plan that members experience with a Continuing Care at Home membership. Landis Communities offers this in collaboration with the Quaker organization, Friends Life Care. The next seminar will take place at East Petersburg Mennonite Church, Wed. February 5 from 1:30-3:00 pm. The church is located at 6279 Main Street in East Petersburg. For more information and to RSVP, please call 844-2Landis (844-252-6347).
