8. IN LIGHT OF LAST MONTH’S CAMP FIRE in Paradise, LCBC has decided to do our part in ministering to those who lost their homes in the Fire. Following the Word of God from Proverbs 3:27 that says: “Do not withhold good from those to whom it is due, when it is in your power to act”, LCBC gave relief offerings to two churches in Chico. LCBC gave $3,000 to Living Hope Fellowship (LHF) and $1,500 to Christ International Fellowship (CIF) in Chico. Living Hope Fellowship church has 9 families who lost their homes in the Fire and CIF has 4 women who lost their homes in the Fire. If you’d like to give to these churches, you may write a check to LCBC, with a memo “Camp Fire Relief”.
