Mt. Lebanon United Methodist Church (MLUMC) celebrated its 100th anniversary in 2011 by expanding its lay leadership programs to continue to provide meaningful and appealing new approaches to worship and the study of Christian life. MLUMC also extends its service to the community through outreach programs and a series of concerts and other events open to the public.

Worship Services
We're located at 3319 W. Liberty Ave., at the corner of Scott Road in Dormont. Our 8:30 a.m. Sunday service is held in Sanner Chapel, adjacent to the sanctuary and accessible through the triple doors on West Liberty Ave. The 10:45 service is held in our beautiful sanctuary.
Nursery care is available for both services in Room 204 of the Education Building. Check with ushers or greeters for directions.

Kidz Praise, a special worship service for ages 3 through 3rd grade, meets in the Welcome Center, on the 2nd floor, during our 10:45 Sunday service.

Sunday School
Christian Education classes for all ages take place from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m. Sundays in various locations. Check with ushers or greeters for directions.

Parking is available in the double-level lot adjacent to the church, in a lot
behind Laughlin's Funeral Home (across West Liberty Avenue from the
church) and on the street.

On January 20, Rev. Thomas Q. Strandburg was named MLUMC’s new pastor, replacing Rev. Oden R. Warman, who will retire in June. Rev. Strandburg will conduct services at MLUMC for the first time on July 6. Following is his greeting to the congregation:

Grace and peace to you from God our Father and ourREv. THomas Q. Strandburg Lord Jesus Christ! It is with great joy that I have this opportunity to greet you, and to introduce you to my family. Born and raised in the community of Warren, Pennsylvania, I recognized and responded to God’s Call upon my life while still a youth. That call has led me through four full-time pastoral appointments in the Western PA Annual Conference over the past 27 years.

Most recently, I have been serving as district superintendent for the 63 United Methodist Churches and the 49 active and retired clergy of the Kane District. I am nearing the end of a six-year term in that office.

Throughout my ministry, I have often turned to the Apostle Paul’s words in Ephesians 4:16 (NIV) as the focus of my work – “From [Christ] the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work.” In both my ministry and my life, I have endeavored to be a vibrant member of the Body of Christ, wherever I have been appointed to serve. My personal goal in ministry is to assist the congregation, through the empowerment of the Holy Spirit, to produce fully-devoted followers of Jesus Christ.

In this work, I am indebted to my wife, Kathy, and to our children, Amy & Joel, for their love and support. I am grateful to the many leaders and mentors that I have had along the way. I promise to be as faithful a friend and as unselfish an advocate, as these persons have been to me.
