Church Family News

Family Bible Night
Our Family Bible Night program is just around the corner and we need some help. We are looking for one teacher and two helpers with a heart for working with kids on Wednesday nights. Please see Heather Dobo if you can help. There will be a KFC Teacher’s training meeting this Wednesday at 8:00pm. At this training, we will hand out the first quarter curriculum, go over the calendar for the year, talk about classroom management, and discuss motivation prize program for the kids. All adult leaders are encouraged to attend this meeting.

West Branch Meet the Teachers Table
We hope to have a table again this year during Meet the Teachers night on September 13. If you are able to greet the kids, invite them to our program, and hand out flyers, let Heather Dobo know.

Membership Seminar
Are you interested in learning what it means to be a member at LEFC? Pastor Matt would like to schedule a membership seminar for folks who want to go deeper into living out Romans 12. Talk with Pastor Matt today about what works best for your schedule.

Missionary Christmas
For the next five weeks, we will be collecting a special offering to send a gift to each of our missionary families. Be a part of blessing our missionaries this year. Use the small envelope in the bulletin or mark your gift “Missionary Christmas.”

Harvest Prayer Time
Our Harvest Prayer Time group will meet to pray for the lost in our community and be praying for outreach events like Meet the Teachers Night, the 2018 Wild Game Dinner, and the Moody Chorale concert we will host in March. The next meeting will be Saturday at 7:00am and will be held here at the church. See Wally Kephart if you have any questions.

Back 2 School Sunday
Join us next Sunday as we celebrate B2S Sunday and spend some time praying for our local schools and the students, parents, and faculty as they begin a new year of learning together.

You Matter 5K & 10Mile Ride
The Pregnancy Resource Clinic will be hosting their annual 5k walk/run and 10K bicycle ride on Saturday, September 30th. Several families associated with our church participated last Fall.

Make Disciples Like Jesus Did
On September 16th Christ Community Church is hosting a Bible-based, application driven morning of learning to make disciples like Jesus did. The speaker is Allegheny District Superintendent Pastor Jeff Powell. Curt Quick will be leading a group to attend this event. The cost is $15 per person and includes snacks and lunch. See Curt if you are interested in attending.

Heading Off to College?
As you get your housing information, be sure to pass that along to the church office so that our church family can be an encouragement to you as you start the school year.

Special Music
Has God blessed you with the gift of music? Share your gifts this Fall during our service! We are looking for individuals to play special music or sing during the offering. See Anita Allen if you are interested in this opportunity.

Operation Christmas Child

With school supplies on sale, now is a great time to pick up some items in preparation for packing a shoebox to bless a needy child. Please note: No candy or toothpaste will be permitted in this year’s boxes.

What Is a Link Group?
A Link Group is two or more people associated with Lanse Evangelical Free Church who are primarily led by a commissioned Link Group Leader and meet at least once a month for the purpose of spiritual growth in biblical community. Members will grow together, pray together, and support & encourage each other. Currently we have three active link groups, but we would like to start some more. If you are interested in leadership training for Link Groups, talk with Pastor Matt.

Gospel Project Sunday School Classes
Our Adult Sunday School will continue our current study in next week. Pick up your free copy of The Gospel Project: Stories and Signs in the foyer and join us for Lesson 13: Jesus Raises Lazarus.

Hide The Word
I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God who loved me and gave himself for me. – Galatians 2:20
