1. PASTORAL SEARCH UPDATE: At the July 5 Council Meeting, the Council unanimously approved the Personnel Committee’s motion to call Pastor Jonathan Szeto as the Associate Pastor for the English Congregation. A Special Members’ Meeting will be held TODAY 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. We continue to ask for your fervent prayers as we seek God’s will and congregational unity in this process.

2. THANKS TO ALL who have casted their vote for LCBC’s 50th Anniversary commemorative t-shirt. TODAY is the last day to cast your vote. We will begin taking orders August 13th.

3. THE LCBC PRAYER MINISTRY invites everyone to participate in the celebration of our 50th church anniversary bible verse recitation event and to encourage people to hide God’s word in their hearts.
