Deaf Ministry

Our Deaf Fellowship and ministry offers Bible study, retreats, missions, and programs locally and globally in ASL. Our sign choir performs monthly at our traditional worship service. We offer pastoral care, baptisms, weddings, and funerals in ASL by our pastor of the Deaf, Rev. Dr. Tom Hudspeth, who is assisted by Certified Lay Deaf Servants Susan Judd and Naomi Rapp. Upon consultation with our SEEDS team, we may provide life skills training for Deaf young adults, with one-on-one mentoring.

Men's Ministry

The Carpenter's Men

Jesus–the Carpenter of Nazareth–is the Lord of our lives. He is the one to whom we give our lives, loyalty and love as we follow Him and His example of loving God and loving others. We are the Carpenter's Men. Our group was designed with the image of a single 2" x 4" x 12" plank in mind. We meet 12 times a year for fellowship, food and a program. We support our church 4 times a year by providing maintenance and grounds work for our campuses. We serve our community 2 times a year through local mission projects. Developing small groups for men is our one central focus. ALL men are welcome to join us for any of our regular events.

Prison Ministry

Lovers Lane UMC mission to love ALL people into relationship with Jesus Christ extends to those incarcerated to prisons in North Texas. Each week, we reach the inmates of the Powledge Unit in Palestine with the gospel of Jesus Christ. Through this ministry, we have been blessed to see lives changed for both those incarcerated and those who serve with us each week. This ministry exemplifies God's words, "I was in prison and you visited me. Visiting and spending time with inmates will change the way you view God and the way you view other people.
