Next Sunday (August 6), a Special Members’ Meeting will be held after the second worship service to vote (only those members present may vote) on whether or not to confirm Pastor Jonathan’s calling to LCBC. For parents who have children in Sunday School classes during second service, please be prompt in picking up your child by 12:15pm from their classrooms so that teachers and helpers may attend this meeting.
