Come join us in changing the way the world can experience community. Come join us in Life Together.

Happy New Year!
Thank You LABC family for the generous love offering. I appreciate you. Once again, I want to thank all of the children and volunteers for being part of Miracle on Main street. The play consisted of a group of children who would not give up on performing their play in front of a large group proclaiming their faith and spreading the true meaning of Christmas. In my opinion the LABC children are ready for the big time when it comes to their acting skills. However, I know there was not acting involved on that Sunday Night of the musical because each of the children celebrate Jesus and joyfully proclaim their faith without hesitation. Thank you all for your enthusiasm and sharing your Christmas spirit. Thank you for the gift to our congregation. --Love, Tara

Christmas Gift for Christ, Sunday, January 8, 10:45 a.m.
Bring a non-perishable food item. Children and adults are invited to bring a non-perishable food item for the Salvation Army, representing a gift for Christ. Children will collect food items at the doors as you enter the sanctuary and will process in from the foyer during morning worship and lay these gifts on the Lord's Supper table. Most any non-perishable food item will be useful, but the following items are in great demand: spaghetti, hamburger helper, cereal, peanut butter, and Ramen noodles.
