 July Mission of the Month: The Love Clothing Center- Today is the last day to donate to this worthy cause! Thank you to all who have contributed so far!  

 All Are Welcome!  This Saturday, August 3rd, at 2:30p.m., a group of young people will be reciting Scripture at a "Proclaim Day" celebration.  This is a requirement of the National Bible Bee that several area young people (including the L’s) are studying this summer.  Besides Scripture, they will be 'tested' in game form on the material that they have been studying out of the Psalms.  It will be a friendly competition and a way for them to prepare for testing and reciting Scripture in front of people, should they qualify for Nationals in Kentucky in November.

"Proclaim Day" will be held at West Lansing Church of Christ, 5505 West St. Joe Hwy, just west of Snow and St. Joe.  We will begin at 2:30 p.m., with a snack reception to follow.  We hope you can come to encourage and be challenged by what these young people have accomplished.  Any questions, you can talk to any L family member.

Please Come Celebrate Dave S’s 80th Birthday!  When- Next Sunday, August 4, 2019 from 2-5 p.m., Where- Lansing, MI, 48911.  Light refreshments will be served.  There will be lawn games to enjoy, or just come to socialize with us.  NO gifts please.
