Express Your Gratitude
LABC Sunday School classes are joining forces to express our heartfelt gratitude and love to the church leaders--Tommy Valentine, Keith Stillwell, Phil Quinn, Tara Luster and Adam Nash—as part of this special week. The week kicked off on Sunday morning with prayer. Each of our pastors were asked how the congregation could support them in their leadership role. The combined responses...“Pray for wisdom, grace and compassion. Volunteer more. Respond to God’s call to ministry and service according to your gifts. Love the youth and give them grace as they learn.” Please pray.
