LC Teens Missions Trip 
On April 20, five students and two leaders will be heading to Guatemala. They will be ministering through Kids Alive International at the Oasis.

If you would like to know more about the trip or how to help support it, talk to Ethan Appell or one of the students going.

 

Communion
We are celebrating Communion during our services Sunday. In communion, we remember the great sacrifice and the precious blood that Jesus Christ shed on the cross to purchase our redemption, we take the opportunity to confess and repent of any sin in our lives, we receive the forgiveness and cleansing that Jesus Christ promised to His disciples, and we experience spiritual refreshment and renewal that helps us as we seek to be conformed to the image of Jesus Christ.

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
 
  • 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.
