"Focusing on Jesus is Eternal"

Inspirational Devotion... As we celebrate the birth of Jesus on Christmas, won’t you allow Him to be the focus of your day? Our culture is so full of distractions; shopping, wrapping, decorations, family gatherings, and meal planning. It reminds me of the time that Jesus arrived at the home of Mary, Martha, and Lazarus. Mary sat at the Lord’s feet listening to what He had to say. Martha was distracted by all the preparations that had to be made. Finally, in frustration she asked Jesus if He didn’t care that her sister left her to do all the work alone. She ended with the plea for Him to tell Mary to help her. Jesus answered her with the gentleness we’ve grown to know; “Martha, Martha, you ar

"Juvenile Justice Ministry"

The Juvenile Justice Ministry is still looking for faithful, God-fearing, volunteers who love kids and have a passion for this ministry. If you feel you are called to this area of ministry, please see Maurice or Pastor Tome for more details on how you can get connected. Children are our future, so we have to help lead and guide them to the Heavenly Father, letting them know that Jesus loves them no matter how many mistakes they’ve made.


Dear LCM Family and Friends, We are living in a world that is not in line with God’s will. This is why our country and nation are suffering. Christmas is no exception for many. For example, many will go out and try to buy our children a bunch of gifts we cannot afford when we know there are other things more important; like rent, food, and utilities that need to be paid. Instead of getting a few nice things, many of us try to do much more than we can afford to do. Then, we want to take shortcuts on the things that are still there staring at us after all the festivities. Well, shortcuts don’t work sometimes ...most times, when we neglect to take care of our ‘business,’ so-to-speak, a shortcut

"Bible Blabber Puppet Team"

The Bible Blabber Puppet Team is wrapping up 2016 with a December 11th performance at LCM. Thank you to each of you who have supported our fundraisers and enjoyed the outreach ministry the team does. To some, this is the only way they are serving Jesus. All praise to His Name! In January we will be opening up the team to new members ages 12 and up. If you would like to join the team, please see Pastor Pam. Parents: If your child under the age of 18 is interested, you will need to attend the January meeting along with them. Watch your weekly bulletin for the meeting date and time. Enjoy the performance!

"AFC House Sunday"

AFC House Sunday was, as usual, a great blessing... This month Justin, who usually does our devotions, wasn't able to attend due to an injury, so that left myself (Teresa), Vicky, Bruce, Kork, Doug and Linda to share laughter, hear stories of what their month has been like, and to just remind them how much they are loved. We also share treats and this month we shared cookies along with banana splits; a HUGE hit. Linda and Doug also brought pie that the guys were going to eat as their evening snack. My prayer is that more of our church body will join us on the 3rd Sunday of every month to fellowship and be blessed by what a great group they are!

"Letters From..."

–from Wilnerson Eugene, who lives in Haiti and is in 2nd grade: "Today I feel glad to greet you in Jesus’ Name. I thank you for the gift you sent to me; with it I bought clothes. I can’t thank you enough for your support. I know that God will bless you more. " –from Teresa Crawley, Missions: "Thanks for all that you and Lanate do for Christ, it is so appreciated. By the way, the money I spent on Friday (Youth Jam Concert and Dinner) was the best money I've spent in a long time. It was awesome and the kids did a great job. Thank you again."
