Pregnancy Choices Baby Bottle Fundraiser

Pregnancy Choices is gearing up for their 2020 baby bottle campaign and we are delighted to continue supporting their ministry.

To ensure the health and safety of our congregation, the baby bottle campaign will look a little different this year.

There will be a large baby bottle set up outside the sanctuary by the orange bubble wall through July 5th.

If you would like to give to the Pregnancy Choices baby bottle campaign, you can drop your change, cash, or check in the bottle or you can donate online through their website at www.gcpchoices.com or through their facebook page at www.facebook.com/pchoices. You can also mail a check directly to the center at 74 W Vincennes St. Linton, IN 47441. Please let us know in the memo line of your check or in the comments section online which church you are from.

Thank you for supporting the Pregnancy Choices ministry and our community!

Online Prayer Meeting – Wednesday, July 15th

Warren Shake will be hosting a Live Prayer Meeting on Wednesday evenings at 6pm. Join us online and interact live via Facebook to submit your prayer requests or pray for others.

Scripture Notes:

If you keep my commands, you will remain in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commands and remain in His love. I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and your joy may be complete. My command is this: love each other as I have loved you.
John 15:10-12 | NIV |

For all the gods of the nations are idols,
    but the Lord made the heavens.
 Splendor and majesty are before him;
    strength and joy are in his dwelling place.                                        
1 Chronicles 16:26-27 | NIV |

I tell you that in the same way there will be more rejoicing in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who do not need to repent.                            
Luke 15:7 | NIV |

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.                                                                                      
Romans 15:13 | NIV |

The Lord has done it this very day;
let us rejoice today and be glad.                                                               
Psalm 118:24 | NIV |

The live video will be posted below at 5:50pm. You can also visit our Facebook page access the live prayer meeting.

LFCC Coronavirus (COVID-19) Response

Hey LFCC family,

In light of recent events concerning the Coronavirus we wanted to update you about some decisions we’ve made as a Church leadership. 

Upon much prayer and deliberation, as of now, we are planning on proceeding with regularly scheduled services (including children’s programming) on Sunday, March 15th, 2020 (Sunday School at 8:30am, Sunday Gathering at 10:00am). Know that this is an ever-evolving situation and we will do our best to stay on top of it.

We are doing all we can to ensure that our facility is as safe as possible for our Church family. Counters, door handles, and other high-use items have been cleaned and disinfected numerous times. 

In and effort to minimize contact, we will make the following alterations to our service:

  • Communion plates and offering bags will not be passed throughout the congregation
  • We will use only the two front entrances (SE and SW Doors under the awnings) for entry on Sunday morning.
  • Since Governor Eric Holcomb has imposed a limit on gatherings to no more than 250 people, once we reach 200 people in the main building we will begin diverting attendees to the Youth House where they may view the livestream of the service as a family.

We are taking every precaution we can to minimize risk to anyone and you can help with that. We need you to use good judgment to protect yourself and others. 

  • If you are feeling sick, have a fever or a cough; we are asking you to stay home and worship together with us online. 
  • If you have shortness of breath, are elderly, or have an immune system that is compromised; we are asking you to stay home and worship together with us online. 
  • If you feel as if you may have been exposed to the Coronavirus, we are asking you to stay home and worship together with us online.

Please do not feel bad if you feel that you need to stay home. We want to be as safe as possible so we are asking everyone to err on the side of caution and worship with us online if you are the least bit uncertain.

If you are worshipping with us online, you can find the livestream at the following link – http://www.peopletogod.com/lfcc-livestream/ or visit the LFCC YouTube channel at https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCgDXA2dRMny6yyHjw22Umsg

Also, if you are worshipping online we encourage you to prepare communion and partake with us as a family during the service and don’t forget that you can give as part of your worship online at https://pushpay.com/g/peopletogod OR on the Linton First Christian Church app for iPhone or Android. 

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. We are trying to figure this out like everyone else, so please be flexible, be faithful, and stay tuned as things can change very quickly. 

Don’t forget to be in prayer. Peter said in 1 Peter 3.12 12 The eyes of the Lord watch over those who do right, and his ears are open to their prayers.

God is hearing our prayers so please keep them coming.

God has been moving in mighty ways and we believe He will continue to move in mighty ways… This WILL NOT stop what HE is doing. Nothing will ever stop what God wants to accomplish! Our methods might have to change BUT the message NEVER WILL… and it must go out!

We trust God will protect us as His children BUT we will take every precaution we need to take. 

Keep praying… love God… love people… share Jesus and be safe. We love you and will see you all soon.

Forget the Frock 2020

Easter is quickly approaching and once again, we would like for you to consider joining us as we “Forget the Frock”.

For the past few years, LFCC has participated in Forget the Frock. This is a movement started by a woman, Emily Fox, who loves Jesus and answered His call to do SOMETHING. That something was the decision to forgo all the frilly frock (dresses, suits, ties) that accompanied Easter attire and purchase a t-shirt that actually served a PURPOSE! This year we have chosen Open Arms Ministries as our ministry with a purpose! If you would like to participate by ordering a shirt, please click HERE to fill out the form or contact Michelle Ellett for more information. Shirts are $20 each. All orders must be received by March 16, 2020. Thanks for supporting a great ministry!!

Drop us a line...

Join us for Sunday service, in person or online, at 10am!
