Cancelled: 2020 Community Thanksgiving Dinner

After much consideration, we unfortunately have to announce the cancellation of this year’s Free Community Thanksgiving Dinner.

For the past several years, members of our Church and the Greene County community have joined forces to produce as many as 1,500 free, home-cooked Thanksgiving meals for our local residents.

Due to health concerns associated with COVID-19, we feel that for the safety of our community it’s best we cancel the large format Thanksgiving dinner.

Stay tuned for announcements on how you can continue to serve God and our community through other projects.

Keep praying… keep loving God… keep loving people…and keep sharing Jesus!

FAMILY NIGHT:Follow the Light

We are excited to announce that we are having our Family Night:Follow the Light event again this year. It will be held on Sunday, October 25th at 6:00 pm in the woods behind the church. This year’s theme is “The ‘I AM’s’ of Jesus”. There will be a lighted path through the woods with a lesson about who Jesus says he is in the book of John, a campfire, and food. We will be following our physical distancing guidelines. We would love it if you would join us for this event and remember to let Jesus’ light shine through you!

Lifetouch Pictures-Postponed

Updated: Message from Lifetouch-

As you know, our team was so excited to return to churches and begin photographing congregations again. 

Unfortunately, however, as the situation with COVID-19 continues to evolve, we have determined that it’s in the best interest of our business and our teams to put all Lifetouch Church Photography programs on hold for the time being. 

I apologize, but this means that we will have to postpone your photography program. 

We’re not sure when we will be able to resume photography programs – but photographing your congregation is really important to us.  

When our staff returns to work and we reopen our church photography programs, we’ll be in touch with you directly to get your church back on our schedule – and the photography program back on your church’s schedule – as quickly as possible.   

Stay safe and Be well.

Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.

Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead,

Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength.

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!
