"Joy to the World!" we hear or sing every Christmas season. Joy - deep, abiding joy - is something we each long for as we "mourn in lonely exile here." We wait for Jesus to "cheer us by Thy drawing nigh" and "disperse the gloomy clouds of night." This Sunday we continue our series, Unshakable Hope in Fearful Times, with the message "The Lord Will Delight Us!" based on Isaiah 61:1-11.Annually, Lakeshore Fellowship supports "Kids Against Hunger" (KAH) by raising funds to purchase a "food packaging event" to help feed the hungry; locally and globally! One way we raise funds is by hosting a "Noisy Offering". We ask that people begin to save their loose change and plan to donate it on Sunday, January 22nd. We will have a special offering that morning, dedicated to support this project. There will be metal collection bins to make "a noisy offering". (We will also take paper money and checks.) Thank you all for your contributions! The KAH event will be on Wednesday evening, February 15th. More details on the event will be coming.
As a courtesy to our visitors, please keep the closest parking places, near the sidewalk, for our guests. We are now also reserving 2 specific parking places “just for visitors”. They are the first two spots before the Handicap spots, near the sidewalk. Thank you all for your willingness to give our GUESTS the BEST parking!
