Attention Music Lovers!

The Anthem Choral is losing four members this year.  Pat Carney (soprano) and Eric Ludwig (lead tenor) have both moved out of state.  We will be losing Pastor Bruce (base) and Gwen (alto) to retirement. We are in desperate need of singers. If you would like to join our choir, please talk to any of us.  We’d be so grateful for you to join us.  Mark and Sun are wonderful to work with.  You will certainly enjoy the experience. The more the merrier.

The first choir practice starts Thursday night, September 4th, from 7:30 to 9:00.  Hope to see new faces!  We’re tired of just looking at each other.

Launch the Intern

LCIF will “launch” Ryan into his ministry as an Ordained pastor of the ELCA! We’ll celebrate with special worship and a party after the 10 AM service on September 7.

 Ryan's Seminary DebtIn past years attending seminary cost very little, if anything, because of support from congregations and synods. As support decreased and the cost of seminary increased, the burden of paying for seminary transferred to the candidates. Let’s help Ryan “retire” his seminary debt as he begins to serve the ELCA! This past year at LCIF, Ryan has received only a stipend of $1200/month and student health insurance. As we bless Ryan with our gifts, he will bless our ELCA church and its future!
