What's Love Got to Do With It?

posted Jan 8, 2020, 10:45 AM by Lee Church

Sunday, January 12, local worship leaders Rev. Mary Doane and Sylvia Foster lead us in a service - complete with specially selected music – and a message about re-thinking and re-claiming an old story:  one of a universe that is alive and infused with God’s creative spirit. Their hope is that this re-claiming, this re-discovering leads us to a deeper appreciation of the role of humanity in the world.

Pastor Gail met with our guests-to-be in October and said she would heartily suggest that you come and enjoy what these folks have to share. She thinks you will be pleased!

Join us on Sunday, January 21, 2020 to hear "What Love's Got to Do With It".

The Lee Church Youth Group is doing a Parent's Night Out at the Lee Church on Saturday, December 14th, from 5:30-8:30pm.  You can drop your child(ren), aged 3-11, off under the care of the Sr. and Jr. High Youth Group (and their supervisors) for a night of fun! English muffin pizzas, juice, popcorn, movies, games, it will be a blast!  The best part is then you have a night to yourself as well!  Go to dinner, enjoy! Cost is $25 for first child and $10 for each additional child for the entire night!! This is much less expensive than a babysitter at your house!  

The LCC Youth Group will be using the funds towards their mission trip to the Adirondacks this summer to help those less fortunate.  Thank you for supporting our endeavors.
