Commitment Sunday was February 4th!

If you weren’t around last couple of weekends, it isn’t too late to make a commitment for this next year! Commitment Cards and Membership Covenants will be available in the lobby through the rest of this month. Drop a card in the donation box or the basket on the wall by the Auditorium doors.

Here’s what membership looks like at LCC…

Each year, our church takes the first Sunday in February to renew our commitments to God and to each other for another year. For some of us, that means affirming our membership covenant. For others it means affirming our associate covenant which is really just a commitment to hang around with us for this year. 

A couple of years back, Pastor Jeff wrote a series of blog posts designed to help us prepare for making this commitment, so let me encourage you to read them over again (or for the first time) this year.

#wisdom

Sun, 02/11/2018 - 01:54
Now more than ever, we live in a society where passion gets to drive, knowledge rides shotgun, and wisdom is forced to sit in the back if it’s even allowed in the car. We can’t continue to live that way. It’s time to get back to what’s important.

Vision Part 02 :: The Greatest Good

Sun, 01/07/2018 - 16:00

We continue our conversation about vision by studying the vision of David and then learn our first “Vision Truth.”

Speaker: Jeff Mikels :: Passage: Various

Vision Part 01 :: Intro

Sun, 12/31/2017 - 16:00

What does it look like to have supernatural vision? What does it take to be a person of vision? In this message, we begin to explore this concept and more.

Speaker: Jeff Mikels :: Passage: Various

Vision

Sun, 12/31/2017 - 00:11

2018 is upon us. With 10 years of ministry under our belts, LCC is poised to embrace a larger vision, but first, we need to become people of greater vision and to do that, we need to become people of deeper prayer. This new series of messages will be accompanied by prayer meetings every day for 21 consecutive days. The series begins on New Year’s Eve, but the 21 Days of Prayer begin the following Sunday, on January 7.

A Very Cranky Christmas Part 04 :: Church

Sun, 12/24/2017 - 16:00

One of the things that bothers people around Christmas is the need to go to church. Seriously, the need to put on a spiritual face around Christmas time is a significant stressor, but the story of Christmas actually provides the antidote to that stress too!

Speaker: Jeff Mikels :: Passage: Various

A Very Cranky Christmas Part 05 :: Gifts (Christmas Eve)

Sun, 12/24/2017 - 16:00

Our Christmas Eve message this year focuses on the stress of trying to find the perfect gift and the joy of actually finding it!

Speaker: Jeff Mikels :: Passage: Various

Christmas Eve 2017 Weekend Schedule

Sat, 12/23/2017 - 02:37

I’m getting really excited about our Christmas Eve Weekend, so here’s what you need to know.

  • Sunday Morning, 12/24, will be a “normal” Sunday morning with two identical worship gatherings (9am and 10:45am), fully staffed Kidopolis at each, and our youth programming during the 9:00 gathering.
  • Sunday Evening, 12/24, will be our special Christmas Eve celebration from 6-7pm. Kidopolis will be closed, and we will have a family-friendly worship gathering with everyone in the same room. There will be something special for the kids, I’ll bring a brief but encouraging message about having the perfect gift for Christmas, we’ll have abundant hot chocolate and cookies, and Chuck and I have been working for over a month to make this year’s celebration something extra special.

So, just to be clear…

Sunday Morning normal schedule

AND

Sunday Evening special celebration gathering!

I’d love to see you for both the morning and the evening if you can make it.

A Very Cranky Christmas Part 03 :: Peace

Sun, 12/17/2017 - 16:00

This message was brought to us by a missionary who serves in a sensitive part of the world. To honor his security, we have removed the media from our servers.

Peace on Earth? The Angels promised it to the shepherds, but is that promise real? This week, we are blessed with a message from someone who has real experience with the peace that Jesus brings into a world of strife.

 

A Very Cranky Christmas Part 02 :: Savior

Sun, 12/10/2017 - 16:00

The only reason to send a Savior is if someone needs to be saved… Christmas reminds us that things are messed up but that God offers a real solution!

Speaker: Jeff Mikels :: Passage: Various

A Very Cranky Christmas Part 01 :: Chaos

Sun, 12/03/2017 - 16:00

Are you fed up with all the chaos of Christmas? There is so much to get done around Christmas, but perhaps there is a way for us to simplify and rediscover the joy of Christmas.

Speaker: Jeff Mikels :: Passage: Various

A Very Cranky Christmas

Sun, 12/03/2017 - 01:39

Christmas for many of us, has become a season of stress and frustration. We are faced with the challenges of getting the decorations right, getting the gifts right, getting the food right, and more!

In this series, we explore some ways to get past our Christmas Crank and rediscover the joy of the season!

Lafayette Christmas Parade Church Unity Float

Fri, 12/01/2017 - 22:17

Photo Credit: https://www.facebook.com/events/142499896366504/

We have a fun opportunity this Saturday (12/2/17) to participate in the 2017 Lafayette Christmas Parade with the Greater Lafayette Gospel Association and The Pastors Alliance.

These two organizations have been cooperating in a number of ways over the past year, and we want to finish the year with a display of the unity God is bringing about in our town.

We want you to join us, so here are the details for that:

  1. FLOAT DECORATION: The float is almost finished, but it needs to be decorated with garland and Christmas lights. A group of us will be meeting at the LCC building parking lot at 1pm to put the finishing touches on it. We could use your help, if you want to join us. Also we could use a few last minute items: a power inverter to power the float from the truck’s 12V, garland, tinsel, low-power (LED) or battery-powered Christmas lights.
  2. CHOIR PARTICIPATION: If you can’t help finish the float, we’d still love for you to join us in the choir on the float. We will be able to put 30 people on the float, some will be able to sit, but most will need to stand (holding handrails). If you want to sing, just show up at 4:30pm. However, in the interest of safety, we will not allow children to ride on the float. We didn’t build the float to safely contain kids.
  3. WALKER PARTICIPATION: If you don’t want to sing, we’d still love for you to join us as a walker. In fact, this is the major part of our float. We are hoping for 100 or more people from many local churches to join us as walkers, wearing festive clothing, and passing out candy to kids along the parade route. Feel free to bring your kids in strollers and/or wagons if you want to walk as a family!
  4. WHERE TO MEET: Our float is #48 out of 200, so we will be near the front of the parade. That’s why we especially need to have everyone there before 5pm. Our staging area will be between North Street and Brown Street on 10th Street.
  5. WHAT TO WEAR: The weather is going to be nice but chilly, so dress warmly. Still, this is a parade, so dress in a festive manner! Fun hats are encouraged, but no Santa suits are allowed in the parade.
  6. WHAT TO BRING: If you plan to ride on the float, it would be nice to have some people bring containers of hot chocolate and cups to share. If you plan to be a walker, you should bring a bag or two of candy to pass out to kids as we walk.
  7. WHAT TO AVOID: We are discouraging churches from passing out flyers about their ministries. This is our first time doing something like this, and we want to focus on the unity Christ is bringing to this town more than on promoting our own individual ministries. However, if you want to bring a sign representing your church, that is encouraged.

Finally, the parade begins at 5:30pm and the route goes from 11th Street and Main Street down Main Street to 2nd Street and then up to Ferry Street. We will disembark and disband near 3rd and Ferry, so take that into consideration as you coordinate your parking.

I’m so excited that we get to be part of this. I and a lot of other people have put in a lot of work to make this float happen, so please join us if you can!

Generosity 2017 Part 02 :: Everything

Sun, 11/26/2017 - 16:00

Giving a portion of our income is all well and good, but God deserves so much more… in fact, He deserves our everything!

Speaker: Jeff Mikels :: Passage: Various

Generosity 2017 Part 01 :: 19.95

Sun, 11/19/2017 - 16:00

In the opening message of our 2017 Generosity Project, Jeff Mikels attempts to coerce everyone to give $19.95 toward the effort… and explains why.

Speaker: Jeff Mikels :: Passage: Various

Generosity 2017

Sun, 11/19/2017 - 02:10

Each year, we take at least a couple weeks around Thanksgiving to train ourselves in generosity. This year is no different as we plan to raise funds to do some major works of blessing in our community!

Join us by donating something to the Christmas Generosity Project today!
