These "Bulletins" are the slides on the screens during the service. These are available for those who may want to look back at the songs and sermon notes or anyone who has trouble seeing the slides on the screen for you to look at on your own device or look back at after the service. We hope this is helpful. Love God -Love People!

A few times this summer we're taking a break from our Summer Sunday School Classes/Seminars to encourage everyone to take steps in building a "Redemptive Relationship."
What are Redemptive Relationships?
Redemptive relationships are a time set aside for us as a church to be intentional and deliberate in a relationship with redemptive intentions.
We're encouraging everyone in the LCC family to make time for:
- Building a relationship with a friend or neighbor for the purpose of having a Gospel conversation
- Getting to know someone at the church that's not a normal part of your "bubble" to grow in Christian fellowship.
Ideas/Options to consider:
- Go to lunch/brunch (or invite someone over) with someone you don't know.
- Invite a family to meet your family at the boardwalk or beach in the afternoon or evening.
- How long have you been coming to LCC?
- When did you become a Christian?
- What's something we can pray with you about?
May God use these relationships to foster Gospel Conversations and Gospel Fellowship for His Glory!

Today is Sanctity of Life Sunday so this morning I preached a Pro-Life message titled "The Imago Dei Matters" that addressed not only abortion, but also racism, euthanasia, a Biblical view of disability, and more.
It was an exciting day! I make no apology for deliberately being a Pro-Life pastor. Our Church started its annual baby bottle drive for the Hope Pregnancy Center in Ocean City.
As a follow-up to the message and as a way to recommend some good resources to reflect on today, here are some sources I would like to commend to you.
- R.C. Sproul answers Why Churches should observe Sanctity of Life Sunday
- John Piper Resources:
- Free Chapter in For the Fame of God's Name outlining John Piper's Prophetic Pro-Life Preaching
- Piper's Sanctity of Life Sermons.
- Abort73: powerful and helpful website
- Albert Mohler article, "Abortion is as American as Apple Pie."
- 180 The Movie. If you haven't seen, you simply must! Visit 180movie.com
- Here's a wonderful article by Randy Alcorn on the Biblical perspectives on an unborn child.
- I used Tim Tebow's story, as an illustration, this morning. Here's an interview with Bob & Pam following last year's Super Bowl ad
- Here's a followup article by Randy Alcorn
- Here's a really cool visualization from conception to birth.
I love the text in this stanza of Immortal Invisible, it was a joy to affirm it as a congregation this morning.
To all, life Thou givest,
to both great and small;
In all life Thou livest,
the true life of all;
We blossom and flourish
as leaves on the tree,
And wither and perish--
but naught changeth Thee.
Here are some good resources on the issue of abortion that I would commend to you.
Top Recommendation - Randy Alcorn's book has become a classic and go-to book in this area.

———. Why Pro-Life?: Caring for the Unborn and Their Mothers. Multnomah Books, 2004. While this book is out-of-print it is still available at Eternal Perspective Ministries. You can also get a free pdf of the entire book here.

McCorvey, Norma, and Gary Thomas. Won by Love: Norma McCorvey, Jane Roe of Roe V. Wade, Speaks Out for the Unborn As She Shares Her New Conviction for Life. Thomas Nelson Inc, 1998. Jamie and I read this book together several years ago, it is a very transparent and eye-opening book of Norma’s experience as being “Jane Roe.” It chronicles her conversion and introduces her Roe no More Ministry.

Beloved LCC Family & Friends,
One area of discipleship that cuts to our hearts is in the area of finances. Many times in scriptures the connection between our heart and our money is highlighted, especially by our Lord.
Individuals and families struggle with financial decisions. Questions related to credit cards, co-signing a loan for a family member, basic saving, investing and Social Security can become overwhelming. As Believers, we are taught to become a “Wise Steward” for the sake of our testimony and to protect our family. We only have to look as far as God’s Word to find the wisdom to answer many of these questions.
Our church has partnered with Life Institute to conduct a Stewardship Lifestyle Seminar to provide us with useful applications for Biblical Stewardship. I personally encourage you to attend these sessions that we are hosting on Sunday, November 14th through Tuesday,
For more information about the session times, please see the Seminar Schedule in the Welcome Center.
The Stewardship Lifestyle Seminar will offer teaching sessions that cover Biblical principles and practical applications including:
- What is the difference between a secular and a Biblical worldview of money?
- How can we train the next generation to understand and become better stewards?
- How can I establish a budget that works?
- How can I accelerate a way to get out of debt?
- When should I start saving and investing?
- When can I afford to retire and how much will I need?
- What is a “Christian’s Will”?
- How can I lay up treasures in heaven and invest in the Kingdom of God?
Whether you are just starting out or you are well experienced in your understanding of financial stewardship, this Biblical overview of stewardship will benefit you greatly. I would also like to encourage you to invite your friends and relatives who do not attend our church. This is a tremendous witness for us as Christians to show non-believers that there is relevance in the Scriptures and the ministries we provide.
Grace to you,
