LAST SUNDAY TO GIVE TO CHRISTMAS BLESSING 2018!  In the Christmas Season we have 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 TODAY and your gifts will be passed along to those in need.  Thank you for giving!
