It will be held on Sunday, February 24, from 5-7 PM in the Ministry Center. We will be painting the night sky, with ties to Biblical verses.

New book in the LCC Library
Cancer can make a person feel both frightened and powerless. In her book, The Adventures of Cancer Girl and God, author and nurse Anna Fitch Courie journals the struggles she faces as she undergoes treatment. Along the way she finds God’s grace, faith, and hope. Her thoughts are honest and raw, yet encouraging, as she shares advice along the way. This book is helpful for anyone who has cancer or some other life-threatening health condition.

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.

BIBLE CLASS ELECTIVES
 
  • Equipped to Serve: Room 320; Sundays @ 11:00 AM; Dr. Bob Paeglow and Anna Leung
A Sunday elective for those who want to learn more about caring for the marginalized. The elective is based on materials called “Equipped to Serve” which has helped mobilize a suburban church outside Grand Rapids, MI engage their vulnerable neighbors. The curriculum entails off-site experience of listening to and serving the poor together, as well as in-depth studying, processing and connecting in the class.
 
  • 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.
