Announcements:

What is Christmas all about? Is it presents and decorations, productions and busyness? In A Charlie Brown Christmas, Charlie Brown comes to understand the true meaning of Christmas with a little help from his friends.

This Christmas classic clocks in at just over 27 minutes and is raged G, for all ages.

While we won’t be showing this film as a community, it is available on many network TV stations throughout the holiday season, along with several streaming services.

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.

Join us for worship this Advent!

Meal Trains–one day left on each!

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.
