Behold Your God, is a twelve-week, in depth study of God’s character and personality. We will meet at 1:00 PM on Tuesdays at the church and the class will last approximately 1½ hours. Each class will include a DVD and time of discussion. There is a workbook and there will be daily Bible readings and questions to be answered in the book. The workbook is $12.

"Christmas Child" • 10:00 AM

Operation Christmas Child, a program sponsored by Samaritan's Purse, is a mission is to provide God’s love in a tangible way to children in need around the world and to share the Good News of Jesus Christ. Since 1993, more than 178 million children in more than 150 countries have received an Operation Christmas Child shoebox.

This year will will gather on November 7th at 10:00 AM (wearing masks and with social distancing) to fill shoeboxes for this mission. Here is a list of suggested items for "stuffing."

If you can’t be with us on November 7th, there will be a container in the narthex of Light of Christ Church to receive items to go in the boxes.

The Challenges of Reopening

Guidelines for Worship

Please read and consider the guidelines for Light of Christ parishioners and guests as we return to worship in our building.

In addition to the sanctuary worship we will provide a live stream of the service for those at home.

Eucharist at Home
This printable version of the commumion service is for use on Sundays by parishioners who remain at home in social distancing. Download and print, or read online.

Our worship service will be available to live stream on the internet, and this resource allows at-home worshipers to join the responses during communion.

ZOOM Prayer Meetings

It was so great to see and listen to our brothers and sisters during the Prayer Meeting on Friday.

I think it relieves some of the burden and gloom that is so common through this time of isolation. A few people commented that it is just nice to hear laughter and see smiling faces. All in all I think it is a success.

We'll do the same thing each Friday at 7:00 PM

I'll send everyone a Zoom invite early in the week with a password for added security. Keep this password to enter into the Zoom meeting page. Plan to join us.

Blessings, Mike
