From the Council

UPDATED – “To ensure the health, safety and longevity of our congregation and staff, masks are to be worn while in the building.  This ensures we can continue in person services and programming activities.  Masks will allow to us to continue to build our church community and relationships at LCC until we reach a time when Covid’s numbers begin to decrease.  The Council is monitoring the ever changing covid environment in our community.  We ask for your on-going patience, kindness , and grace during this difficult time.”  LCC Council
