brings joy and happiness as well as pain and tears. LCC wants to be
here for you, to celebrate in those happy times and to offer support in
those trying times.
At times, LIFE can be hard. We all have times when we need a helping hand to see our way through difficult circumstances. Some of these trials are caused
by our own choices and we reap the consequences of our decisions.
Sometimes we are simply confused and do not know why. Other times
things are just dark and depressing, and we need some encouragement or affirmation
along the way. Whatever your situation is, God, through His Word and by
His Spirit, has answers for you.

HOSPITAL VISITATION MINISTRY
A Hospital Ministry Team consists of people that serve the cause of Christ by faithfully visiting
members and friends of LCC in local hospitals or hospice facilities. Team
members take a day a week to make visits. This ministry has three
goals: expressing support and encouragement on behalf of our LCC family;
praying with patients and their families; and keeping the church
connected to a patient's changing condition.
The Hospital Ministry Team greatly enhances our
ability to meet the needs of our congregation. If you know of someone that is in the hospital, please let the church office know so we are able to visit them.
We are here to come alongside you in pre-planning/planning funerals.
We have a volunteers from within the church that will provide salads and desserts for family luncheons held at LCC. If you would like to join this team, please contact the church office. Lucy Detrick will contact you.
Congratulations on your engagement! Your marriage is important to us
and we would love to help you have a great start to your new life
