From the Council

UPDATEDTo ensure the health, safety, and longevity of our congregation and staff masks are recommended to be worn while in the building.  This ensures we can continue in person worship and programming activities.  Masks will allow us to continue to build our church community and  relationships at LCC until a time when COVID numbers begin to decrease.  The Council is monitoring the ever-changing COVID environment in our community.  We ask for your ongoing patience, kindness, and grace during this difficult time.
