This Friday, December 18, we’ll be watching the fourth film in our Advent series, A Muppet Christmas Carol.

Based on the Charles Dickens Classic and directed by Brian Henson (the son of the great, Jim Henson), A Muppet Christmas Carol features, you guessed it—the Muppets cast, alongside Michael Cain who plays Ebenezer Scrooge.

*Fun fact* Frank Oz (who was the voice and puppeteer for Yoda in the Star Wars films) is one of the puppeteers in the film.

The Muppets make this powerful story accessible to younger viewers while not diminishing the impact of Dickens’ work.

We will have a brief intermission half way through the film and a chance to win some door prizes.

The zoom link will be in the LSCC Update email each week. Please contact us if you want to be added to that email list.

We hope to see you on Friday evening at 6:30!

Friday Film Schedule:          Friday, December 18 at 6:30pm—A Muppet’s Christmas Carol

Films have a way of forming the way we think and how we feel about the world around us. On Sundays, Pastor Chris will explore the biblical themes under-girding each film, and offer some critique if necessary.

Meal Trains

Baby Oliver Majors was born Thanksgiving!
You can find the link in the weekly LSCC Update email or contact us to bring his family a homemade frozen meal – to have meal options for the crazy days and to cook off meals as needed. 🙂 A cooler will be set up on the porch for contactless deliveries. Rob, Michele and the boys don’t have any food allergies, and enjoy both meaty and vegetarian meals. No need to be kid-friendly as Ellis eats everything and Bennen won’t be pleased with any dinner offering.

Janna Uffleman has been caring for her mother in Seattle on Mondays through Wednesdays as she receives radiation, chemotherapy and immunotherapy for breast cancer. So let’s care for the Uffelmans with the gift of one less meal to make! Check your weekly LSCC Update email for the link, or contact us to take them a freezer meal.
