Tony’s LCC Update 6/22/18

Dear LCCers, Great things are happening at our church! Our Choir, Orchestra, and Tech Crew did a marvelous job Wednesday night preparing our meal and serving it to us (complete with beautiful dinner music, tablecloths, and a tuxedoed maitre de), and we are grateful. Josh Cox is working hard providing opportunities for our middle and high schoolers. He and Allison are working hard to provide Church Camp opportunities this summer for all ages of our young people. And our Classic Sunday Night on July 1 is drawing near!

Dear LCCers, Two of our church leaders are working hard to try to serve the Lord by serving others who are in need, and I wanted to tell you about it so that you could volunteer to help if these situations are in your ability to do so.

Tony’s LCC Update 6/1/18

Dear LCCers, VBS begins THIS Sunday! Our times are Sunday-Thursday, 6:00-8:30 pm each night. Please tell and bring your children, grandchildren, neighbors, and any child you know. Each night there will be Bible stories, music, drama, crafts, games, food and more. Pray with us about this, that Christ will be shared and young lives will be changed.
 
     Speaking of young lives, Josh and Ashley Cox are here, and we are looking forward to Josh beginning his Youth Ministry here with us! Come Sunday and meet Josh and Ashley and their family.
 

     Father’s Day is June 17, and Clark Cregger and I are planning to team-teach a special message, and I hope you will plan to be here! I’m really excited about this and appreciate Clark’s willingness to come and share with us. In fact, I’m going to ask all of you to email us pictures of your own fathers in preparation for this special day. You can email them to Clark at machobo@mac.com, or to Kandy in the church office at office@lilburnchristianchurch.org. Thanks in advance for doing this!

I want to give a “Shout Out” to my Sunday School Class, the Welcome Class–what a great job they did with the meal this past Wednesday night! We had a huge number from the Class turn out, and everyone worked hard and with a smile, and it was a real joy for me to be a part of it! I thought the meal turned out wonderfully well, and I am grateful for each one of these willing servants who made it happen! You are an inspiration.
 

     Thanks also for your prayers for our church. I will be looking for you on Sunday, God bless you–
 
Tony

I know you will join me in praying for and welcoming Josh and Ashley and their children as they come to LCC.

Dear LCCers,
      
Pray for your church! Here are some of the “people needs” that we can share together in prayer: We just received word that Steve Simon’s mother passed away in India, Steve will be traveling there soon to be with his family. I know you will join me in praying for Steve; Dorie Botteicher, Betty Hubbard, Jim Moore and Norah and Grace Nguyen are recovering from hospital stays at home; Loetta Benton is in a rehab facility in Newnan; Gensie McDonald and Beverly Underwood are undergoing physical challenges at home; and Larry and Connie Barefield just welcomed a new great-grandson into the world! I know there are many others–pray!
     Jerry Scarbrough, one of the first ministers here at LCC, passed away last week. There is a celebration service for Jerry this Sunday afternoon at First Christian Church of Stockbridge.

Tony’s LCC Update 5/11/18

Dear LCCers,
     Sunday is Mother’s Day! Give your mom what she really wants: go to church! We praise the Lord for mom, and pray for strength and grace for all of them, that He enables them to keep doing what they’ve been doing. For their love and sacrifice and pointing all of us to Christ, we thank them and the Lord. I hope you can tell your mom you love her on Sunday, and if she’s in Heaven she’ll know, too.

Dear LCCers,
     We love babies at LCC! I guess most churches do, too. Jesus loved children–He let them gather around when the disciples thought He would be too busy for them. Jesus even told the 12 they should be more like the children. Childlike qualities of trust and wonder and joy are welcome at any stage of life!

Dear LCCers,
Last Sunday was an exciting day! It was a great joy to have Emily Everett come forward during the Invitation to join our church! Of course, we have loved Emily already for several years, as she has been a faithful member of our Choir! During her time with us we also came to love her husband Harold, who recently passed and went to be with the Lord. We pray for Emily and welcome her to LCC!
