Please pray for, invite people to, and attend this special worship service! We are privileged to have great singers and instrumentalists here, and I always look forward to these programs!

Hope you’ll be a part of all these! On 4/27 we have another breakfast coming for men, and there’s a VBS workday following.
Thanks for your prayers for our church and your service for Christ. My love and God’s blessings to you and your family—

Tony’s LCC Update 3/1/19

Dear LCCers,
Plenty to pray about this week, as always! Suzette Cregger lost her step dad, and Wanda McClanahan her brother in law. Many are recovering at home from illnesses and surgery. Pray! Thanks for praying for Dwayne, who returned home safely from his mission’s trip to Poland. We continue to pray for impact from that trip. And here, I ask you to lift up in prayer the lost people, those who don’t know Christ. Pray for people in your family who need the Lord. Pray for people in our community who need a relationship with the Father, for the Lord to draw them to Himself. Pray for our outreach and services. Pray for opportunities to share what Jesus has done for you. Pray! Read more…

Tony’s LCC Update 2/9/19

Dear LCCers, As you know if you’ve been around our church for awhile I tend not to speak out much about political matters. We have a diverse group of people in our church family, and many different points of view are here. But sometimes I must speak. The recent national disturbance concerning abortion, particularly so-called late-term abortion, is one of those times. The law recently enacted in NY, and the one considered (but I think for now tabled) in VA strike me as being wrong and immoral. (This seems like a fair summary of both the NY and VA legislation:https://www.theatlantic.com/ideas/archive/2019/02/new-york-and-virginia-push-expand-abortion-rights/581959/). I am pro-life. I believe we must protect the lives of innocent children. We should not ridicule or shame women who, under pressures or circumstances we know little about, may have had abortions. I am thankful that the love and grace of our Lord Jesus is available to all and any of us, whatever our issues, and whatever our brokenness. I wanted you to know how I feel. I think we should speak out to our elected representatives. I think there are times when Christians must speak out, whether the culture wants to hear what we have to say or not. I think we must “speak the truth in love”(Ephesians 4:15), even if it is hard or costly. Life is precious. Life is a gift. Our Father has given us life, and it is valuable. All lives have worth. “For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made.”(Psalm 139:13-14) I love you all and look forward to seeing you Sunday– Tony
