CHRISTMAS BLESSING 2021 & OFFERING TO THE POOR.  In the Christmas Season we combined our special offerings in our desire to bless those in need.  LOCC’s Christmas Blessing is an annual opportunity to partner together in giving financial blessings to families/individuals in our congregation who could use a blessing at Christmas.  Place your gift in an offering envelope, mark it “Christmas Blessing,” and put it in the offering box or offering baskets for the poor THE NEXT TWO SUNDAY’S Nov 28 and Dec 5.  Thank you for giving!
