Pray for good Fellowship (but not TOO good) and good Food (but not TOO much) and, of course, good Shopping (but not TOO expensive!).

Upcoming Church Anniversary Celebrations
Two historical Anniversaries are upon us and planning has begun for:
December 9, 2017: Our 90th LABC Church Anniversary. We will probably wait until early 2118 to celebrate since it falls in the middle of our Advent Season. We hope to celebrate with a Church Luncheon and perhaps a visiting past “celebrity”, a Drama and other Worship Plans.
January 17, 2018: Our “Mighty Moeller” Pipe Organ turns 30 years old! We have a very special instrument and we hope to have Albin Whitworth make a CD this Fall using this organ, and have it available as part of the plans. Also, we hope to have Albin and Bruce Richardson come to a concert and talk about how this instrument was “born”.
Nursery Worker Needed
The children’s ministry is in need of a paid nursery worker who can help Linda on Wednesday nights and occasionally fill in on a Sunday morning. If you or someone you know may be interested (18 and older only), please let Amanda know.
