Sermon Preview

Matthew 5:27-37
Losing the Loopholes

From the very start of the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus has been carefully hinting to us that it's the internal part of us, what we are like in our minds and hearts, that should define and direct our righteousness. In this passage, we will see Jesus continue to give illustrations of what this looks like and how it radically differs from what the Pharisees and scribes have been teaching, specifically for the issues of lust, divorce, and taking oaths.

Mission Trips - 2017

We are continuing our goal to reach the world’s spiritually and physically poor. Seventeen LRC members have courageously agreed to leave their homes and families for one to two weeks to represent us. Five will go to East Asia in July and 12 to Nicaragua in August. As a body, we can support their work through prayer and finances. They are seeking to raise $27,600 to cover expenses. You will receive a letter this week outlining the need and how you can give. Please prayerfully consider how you can support them. Please return your support by June 1.

Education Forum
Wednesday May 10 7-8:30pm

We have many choices when considering educational options. How do we decide which is the best fit for our children/family? If you have questions about public, private, or home schooling, please attend this Education Forum. There will be a presentation by former LRC member and Harvard graduate Matt Petersen, Ed.L.D., followed by Q&A with a panel of LRC parents who represent different educational options.
