We at Havelock United Methodist Church have been proud to serve our northeast Lincoln, Nebraska, neighborhood for 126 years. Much has changed about our community since the first church structure was consecrated in 1890, but our resolve to be the hands and feet of Christ in today’s world has not wavered. We sum up our mission as three important points:

  • Love God
  • Love our neighbors
  • Make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.

COVID Statement

Due to the removal of the Lancaster County mask mandate, masks are welcomed but no longer required in the church building.

This week on Meet HUMC we are featuring Bob, who is our lead lay speaker. Being the lead lay speaker, he is often in charge of the service when Pastor Todd needs to be gone, and is considered a church leader on several local and conference levels. Bob met his wife Karen on a blind date in 1988. She was attending HUMC and invited him to come one Sunday, and he never left.

Bob has 3 daughters, 3 sons-in-law, 2 grandchildren with a third on the way, and a loving pug named Walter. Much of the family still attends HUMC and takes on leadership roles within the congregation. Bob has recently retired and enjoys his time and ability to get projects done around the house.

“I have enjoyed the opportunities that have been given to me within the church. Being head of the outreach committee and having Halloween and Valentine’s Day parties at the city mission and at HUMC hold special meaning for me. Making over 20 games with my imagination, and having my mom help with those games warms my heart as well. I also feel blessed that I was able to assist in getting a chair lift put into the church, in memory of my mom, Bonnie, and Lou who was a wonderful church friend. When my wife Karen left Havelock to pursue her own calling as a pastor of other churches, I stayed. This is my church home. I look forward to the future with HUMC and what comes with that.” ~ Bob Lamb


UMCOR comes alongside those who suffer from natural or human-caused disasters – be it famine, hurricane, war, flood, fire or other events—to alleviate suffering and to be a source of help and hope for those left most vulnerable. We provide relief, response and long-term recovery grants when these events overwhelm a community’s ability to recover on their own. UMCOR also provides technical support and training for partners to address emerging and ongoing issues related to disaster relief, recovery, and long-term health and development.
