Sermon on the Mount the Musical

Witness Jesus’ most famous sermon set to original music. In this word-for-word presentation of Matthew 5-7, Jesus describes what life is like in the Kingdom of God. Contrasted with the legalistic society of his day, Jesus helps to explain that man sees the outward appearance while God looks at the heart. 5 performers, approx. 35 minutes in length. Sunday, June 12th, 6 pm

Sanctity of Life Sunday

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.

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.


If you're struggling because you've aborted a child, there is hope and healing. If you think you're pregnant and are considering aborting the child, there are options.



Pro-Life Resources

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.


Alcorn, Randy. Pro-Life Answers to Pro-Choice Arguments Expanded & Updated. Expanded. Multnomah Books, 2000


———. 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.


Feinberg, John S., and Paul D. Feinberg.Ethics for a Brave New World, Second Edition. 2nd ed. Crossway Books, 2010.


Klusendorf, Scott. The Case for Life: Equipping Christians to Engage the Culture. Crossway Books, 2009.


Masse, Sydna. Her Choice to Heal: Finding Spiritual and Emotional Peace After Abortion. New. David C. Cook, 2009.


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.

Stewardship Seminar Invitation

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,

November 16.


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,


Jayson Byrd

Christmas at Linwood

2020 has been a year full of turmoil, unexpected changes, and anxiety all reminding us of the broken fallen world we live in that needs a rescuer. Christmas is the reminder that God's rescuer has come in the redeemer and rescuer, Jesus the Christ.


Although different, these are the opportunities to celebrate and serve at LCC this Christmas.


Christmas Around the World

Sunday, December 13th at 6 PM we'll be celebrating the diversity in the Body of Christ and the unity of the Gospel by celebrating the diversity of Christmas music and backgrounds in our local church. We'll have readings and songs from several different countries.


A desert fellowship will be held afterward.


Piercing Word Drama

A musical remembrance of Christ's Birth presented by The Piercing Word Drama, Christmas Through The Ages. Experience the story of Christ's birth told by performing the Scripture. Sunday, December 20th at 6:00 pm


Christmas Eve Service


Join us on December 24th at 7 pm for a time of singing, scripture, prayers, and reflection in a family-friendly Christmas Eve Service.

LCC Regathering Guidelines

We're excited to be back to inside services.


Guidelines and Procedures for resuming indoor services

We are so excited to be getting back to the pattern of Jesus followers from the time of Christ onward of gathering on the first day of the week, Sunday, for corporate worship and fellowship. 

As we said in closing announcements in March, we pray that our guiding priorities are love for God and love for neighbor while submitting to the God-given civil authorities over us. We’re so grateful for the many hours of work and added stresses involved in supplying video services and drive-in services. 


Gathering Instructions

Please know that many details and factors have been discussed and many steps have been taken to be prepared for worship. The following is our plan based on recommendations from health, legal, and church leaders. We look forward to regathering in a safe, sanitized, and socially distanced way. 


Attendance & Capacity 

  • All are invited, welcomed, and encouraged to gather. However, attendance capacity will be limited to the Governor’s temporary guidelines. 
  • So that we are able to be compliant with capacity limitations we are asking everyone to register for a service or call the church office. Knowing approximately how many to expect will help prepare for capacity and add services as needed. 

Register Here


  • If you are in any of the categories listed high risk, have a weakened immune system, or live with someone in these categories we encourage you to participate in an alternative way and feel no social pressure or guilt for doing so in this temporary season. 
  • We will have a VIP Room:  The overflow rooms behind the auditorium will be reserved as a separate venue for those in the VP (Vulnerable Population). This is behind the glass, but still able to see and hear the service. 
  • If you are sick in any way or showing symptoms please do not attend. Your duty is love for neighbor. Those showing symptoms of COVID-19 may be asked to have their temperature taken and/or asked to leave. 
  • If you do not attend we encourage you to participate by watching via Livestream. 


Distancing Guidelines

  1. We encourage following the recommended guidelines for physical distancing. Avoid handshaking and hugs temporarily. Smiles, words of encouragement, Wakanda Salutes, and Vulcan signs ;-), etc. are still encouraged. Bows & courtesies are permissible for those more formal types. :-) 
  2. We encourage you to follow the Governor’s Executive Order in regard to Face Masks. 
  3. Restrooms should be used in a limited and distanced way. 
  4. Wash hands regularly. 
  5. Use the added hand sanitizer stations often. 
  6. Follow the posted instructions. 


Instructions & Expectations

Entering & Exiting  the Building

  • Parking: Follow distancing guidelines in the parking lot and when entering the building. 
  • Touchless Entrances: Doors will be propped open or opened by an attendant for a touchless entry. 


Seating

  • Follow ushers and greeters’ instructions for distanced seating.
  • To reduce congestion and added contact we’re asking many to plan to arrive 15-20 minutes early. We’re planning some extra “Gathering Music” during this time. This same pattern will be followed for exiting after the closing. 
  • Seating will be distanced by the family unit. 


Service Expectations

Elements: Expect the regular elements of worship, scripture reading, congregational singing, ministry of the Word, prayer, giving, and fellowship. 

Offering: We will not be passing offering plates but will have a box available in the lobby. Online giving will be available as well. 

Family Integrated: At this phase our services are Family Integrated, meaning that children worship with their parents or guardians. You can all help this by: 

  • Help: parents, grandparents, and siblings can help little ones pay attention.
  • Accept it as a good thing: Baby’s and children making some noise during the service is normal and should be expected. Don’t worry about it. We actually think it’s awesome to have the sound of children at LCC, it’s a sign of life and health. 
  • Be courteous: We do, however, want to make sure the message of Christ is heard and clear. So, if the sound gets to a distracting level, it’s quite appropriate and even courteous to get up during the service and take the little one to another room or space. 


Please do not Socially Distance or Quarantine the following


While there is a time for physical quarantine, please remember that there are a few things that never should be quarantined.

  • Don't quarantine disciple-making and the great commission. Use this opportunity to initiate Gospel relationships and conversations online and in person. Times of crisis give us incredible opportunities to display trust in God and share the hope of the Gospel.
  • Don't quarantine prayer. Please keep our church family and ministries in prayer.
  • Don't quarantine giving. The work, ministry, and expenses of LCC and our supported missionaries are continuing and in many ways busier now than ever.

Bulletins

These "Bulletins" are not the same as the printed Worship Guide available in our Worship Services. These 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!
