A Bible Reading Plan for 2019
God’s plan for cultivating spiritual growth in His people involves loving and reading His Word. Since the Bible is the Word of God written, our spiritual maturity is rooted in our regular interaction with all 66 books of the Old and New Testaments. Every Christian should make it a priority to know the Bible better than any other book. Pick up a Guide for the plan at Guest Services.
 
DivorceCare
DivorceCare is a supportive, healing ministry to those experiencing separation/divorce. Join them Tuesdays at 6:30 PM in the Ministry Center. Brochures containing additional information are available at Guest Services. Questions may be directed to Darlene Klose, dklose3068@aol.com

It is a time to fellowship with new and old friends that Christ has given us and keeps bringing together. It provides members and non-members the opportunity to socialize and learn from each other and show that God has a purpose for each and every one of us through a variety of ways as we interact with one another. Call the Church office (518)426-0751 with any questions.

WAYS TO SERVE
 
Koinonia Family Fun Night
Looking for a summer missions trip, but you are not able to take the time off to do so? How about serving in Albany this summer on Tuesday nights at a cookout? Each Tuesday from 5:30-7:30 PM Family Fun Night happens on the lawn of Koinonia. This is a time for those who live in the area to come together and build a sense of community, feed those living there that are hungry, as well as show the love of God. If you are interested in serving, please contact Rebecca Parker at rjdaparker@gmail.com
 
Nominating Committee
The committee members are: Pamela Goodwin, Richard Chevrette, Matthew Dickson, Andrew English, Cynthia Hale, Volker Paedelt, Philip Schiesswohl and Paul Beck.

If you know of someone who should be considered to serve on a board, contact one of the Committee members before May 19.
 
Soccer Outreach
Soccer Outreach is in need of leaders. If you have a passion to reach the lost and an interest in  soccer, even if you don’t play, please contact Rick Marsan at Rick.Marsan@gmail.com or (518) 505-6250. Your assistance can be as infrequent as once every few months for 3-4 hours on Tuesday evenings, held here at the gymnasium.

LifeStories
We know that when we hear stories of God’s power and grace manifested in people’s lives, we feel encouraged and our faith is deepened. Help us in an effort to encourage others by sharing your stories with us. Please email us at lifestories@lcchurch.org. Some of your stories have been posted on the LCC Facebook Newsfeed. Hear it for the first time or be blessed again! We encourage all LCC to keep sharing your stories of how God is working in your life with others. Shine His light in your life, that others may see. “Oh give thanks to the Lord; call upon his name; make known his deeds among the peoples!” – 1 Chronicles 16:8 If you have a LIFEstory and would like to share it with us, please email us at: lifestories@lcchurch.org
 
 
 
BIBLE CLASS ELECTIVES
 
  • International Justice Mission Prayer Group: Room 325; Sundays @ 11:00 AM
IJM provides an updated prayer list each week for us to pray through. IJM strongly believes in the power of prayer. When we pray about the very difficult and painful circumstances in which IJM finds children, women and men, we partner with them and God himself, in setting them free. We learn a lot about various forms of human trafficking, slavery and other forms of oppression around the world and how IJM works not only to free those trapped, but also how it works with local governments, law enforcement and courts to reform justice systems.
