CHILDREN’S MINISTRY CHRISTMAS PROGRAM – NEXT SUNDAY.   Please join us NEXT Sunday as the children of LOCC will be performing their annual Christmas program.  They have all worked very hard to learn their lines and songs.  Be praying for them this week, and come prepared to support them as they share the story of Christmas 

CHRISTMAS EVE SERVICE – MONDAY, 12/24, 6 PM.  Begin your Christmas Eve celebration by worshipping the Savior in a simple candlelight service of carols, the Christmas story, and communion held at the Best Western Airport Inn & Conference Center (6815 W.

DECEMBER GROCERY DRIVE:  There are lists on the back table for the December grocery drive to continue blessing our unemployed families within LOCC!  Please take how many ever slips of food items that you would like to purchase, and bring the food back with you NEXT Sunday!  If you don’t have time to shop, you may always make a donation to the food drive and then we will take the money and make sure the items are purchased this week!
