Live and Grow in Christ - Worship!

How does one live and grow in Christ.  For starters, being in worship every weekend is priority number one.  God serves us in worship.  Isn't that interesting? Worship is not something we do for God.  Worship is the time and place where God gives us His gifts of mercy and grace.  We hear that God forgives our sins.  We receive peace with God through that precious message of absolution.  We hear God speak to us through His Word.  Faith is strengthened and hearts are comforted.  We come to His Holy Supper and receive a foretaste of what life will be like in heaven.  And yes, in worship we respond to God's grace and mercy.  We sing our praises.  We give our tithes and offerings.  We seek God's help as we pray our petitions for ourselves and others.  Renewed and refreshed, we go back out into the world, looking to love others as Jesus has loved us.

Join us this weekend at LICL.  Saturday worship takes place at 5 pm; Sunday services are held at 8 and 10:45 am and Bible classes for all ages are held at 9:20 in the morning. 

Hope to see you at Life in Christ!
