CHRISTMAS IS COMING – 2nd SUNDAY OF ADVENT!  TODAY we light the Candle of Peace.  Please worship with us as we read Malachi 3:1-4 and Luke 3:1-6, light the Candle of Peace, and pray… “It is time to go HOME. Lord, even though the road is hard help me to believe that the journey HOME is worth it…”

ALL CHURCH CHRISTMAS DINNER PARTY, TODAY, 5-7:30 PM.  FREE catered meal – FUN entertainment, games, and prizes – MEANINGFUL fellowship to begin the Christmas season!  See you and your family or friends TONIGHT!

FINAL SUNDAY – 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 TODAY (Dec 5.)  Thank you for giving!
