What are the things that clutter your life?

As I write this, our building is abuzz with people.  It is rummage sale day!  Throughout the past week, the women (and a few men) of our church have been receiving items, displaying them, pricing them, and getting ready for this day.  That has been happening here at LOCC for over 50 years..  The funds […]

Capital Campaign Challenge! – Our treasurer, Matt Redd, has informed us that a generous donor has offered to match, dollar for dollar, all additional contributions to the capital fund up to $100,000!  This challenge, if matched, will mean we will meet our campaign goal of $600,000. Meeting this goal will allow LOCC to meet its building payment obligations […]

As we look ahead to our summer, we are reminded about our upcoming […]

Last week we resumed our 8:30 a.m. service, and will look forward […]
