Dear Friends of LCC,
I hope this note finds you well. The Christmas season is in full swing. LCCers are making a difference ministering to those in need. We already had close to 200 volunteer opportunities and Brent got a call because a group had backed out at the Union Gospel Mission. He put out an email and LCCers came through. We are now serving the evening meal on another night at The Union Gospel Mission of Fort Worth. Thanks to LCCers for all you are doing this season to be God’s love with skin. You are awesome.
I had a song playing in my head all of last week and we sang it on Sunday. It goes, “Open the eyes of my heart Lord, I want to see you.” That is my prayer for you and me and that God uses us to show others Jesus.
On Sunday I called for an LCC Thirsty Thursday for this Thursday night. That’s what we call our Thursday night prayer nights. Tomorrow night, 7:00pm – 8:00pm we will have a special time of silent prayer at LCC. The worship center will be open, candles will be lit, lights will be down, and we will have a list of things to pray for on behalf of those who request prayer and for the ministry of Life Connection Church. Please join us. It is come and go. You will be given a list to pray through along with some Holy Scripture on which to meditate. Some others and myself are on a fast leading up to our prayer time. It will be a special night. Please join us if you can.
We have a growing list and if you have prayer requests to add to the list please email firstname.lastname@example.org .
This Sunday is our Christmas Cover Dish Party. After the service we will head to the Life House Cafe for lunch and fun. The bounce house will be open to the kids and we will have a Karaoke Machine and lots of good hanging out with each other…..
We do food good at LCC….Great time to bring another family to church.
This Sunday is Advent Sunday #3. We will light the third candle for joy. It will be a great day to be in church together. I will continue my Christmas/New Year series I am calling, “A Bright Christmas and a Happy New Me”. You can listen to last weeks talk here.. http://www.lifeconnectionchurch.org/Pages/downloads.cfm
We will be having our Midnight Christmas Eve Service at 11:45 pm on Christmas Eve. We will sing Christmas carols, have a candle light service, communion, and celebrate some baptisms at midnight on Jesus’ birthday. If you have not been to a midnight service you have to come, it is a really special time. If you have been planning on getting baptized, how cool would it be to be baptized at midnight on Christmas morning? Email me if you want more baptismal info.
Who are you praying about inviting to church? We are doing some things online to help you introduce your friends to “The church behind the 7-11”. Some people are not sure what to expect so we are giving them a peek inside online. Check out my new video blog site: Royal’s Videos I have been uploading some 10 Minute teaching times from Sunday as well as our Video announcements and other videos to teach and hopefully entertain. Check it out and use it to introduce a friend to LCC. Also, make sure you are familiar with www.lifeconnectionchurch.org
I will see you on Sunday and bring a friend. if you do not have a church you call home, please be our guest this Sunday.
Your brotha from anotha motha
