Weekly update for LEFC April 2nd, 2020

Hello LEFC Church Family!  Please see the most recent LEFC updates.  We pray you are staying safe!

Based on the most recent Safer at Home edicts from the government, the LEFC Elders have decided to suspend in-person services and ministries at LEFC through April 30th.

In addition, we will postpone the LEFC Annual Members Meeting (previously scheduled for April 19) until we can meet again as a body in person.  We will keep you posted as soon as a date for the meeting is able to be scheduled.

Join us for on-line Mandy Thursday service next Thursday, April 9 at 6:30 p.m. Listen Online We will have communion at this service, and we encourage you to participate by partaking of the bread and wine/juice as you are able.  (Please note that there is no communion this Sunday.)

On Saturday April 11 at 8:00 a.m. Men’s Ministry will be having a virtual meeting utilizing Zoom. Our study will be in Chapter 7, God Most Faithful, in the book In His Image. If you have any questions, contact Steve Thompson or check your email for the link.

they are new every morning;
