50th Anniversary Party
You are invited to the LUM 50th Anniversary Party on the actual anniversary of the incorporation of Lafayette Urban Ministry in October of 1972. Join us for cake, ice cream and a gathering honoring the past and looking with excitement toward the future. Here are the party details:
- Wednesday, October 19 | 6 – 7 p.m.
- LUM Office, 420 N 4th Street, Lafayette, IN
In 1972, the seed was planted and has been growing and thriving for 50 years. Today LUM is a strong, dependable and sometimes taken-for-granted, living ministry serving the needs of our most vulnerable neighbors.
LUM has been honoring the 50th Anniversary since the celebration in April, but there will be a LUM 50th Anniversary Party on the actual anniversary of the incorporation of Lafayette Urban Ministry in October of 1972. Join us to honor the leadership, shareholders, programs, services, and impact of Lafayette Urban Ministry for the last half-century.
If you are not able to attend, consider celebrating the LUM 50th Anniversary by making a donation to the LUM Good Samaritan Fund.
“Tackling basic human needs &
Uplifting the people of Greater Lafayette.”

In 1972, a small group of dedicated individuals successfully incorporated a new social services agency in Tippecanoe County — Lafayette Urban Ministry. Mark your calendars and plan on joining us to honor the leadership, shareholders, programs & services, and impact of Lafayette Urban Ministry for the last half-century.
“Tackling Basic Human Needs &
Uplifting the People of Great Lafayette”
LUM also invites you to be a part of the vision for the next 50 years, which will include an in-depth and strategic look at the sustainable future for Lafayette Urban Ministry as a valuable asset to the people, families, and children in our community for generations to come.
