Dear LAC Family,
We look forward to this weekend with you. We have several things taking place this Sunday starting with our 9:30 am all-church gathering in the Worship Center and Online as we begin our first Sunday of Lenten series, “His Words," with a message by Pastor Jeanine Smith from Matthew 9:9-13 as we listen to Jesus invitation to “Come and Follow.” These words of invitation were spoken by Jesus not just to his disciples 2000 years ago, but for us as his followers throughout the millennia and today. Come and Listen! We have developed a special Lenten Devotional that will accompany our Sunday gatherings, which you can use in your private daily devotion or small group. These are available in the Worship Center Lobby for a suggested $2 donation – and for free online at lakeave.org/lent. Pick one up, bookmark the url, and join us in our 2022 Lenten Journey towards Easter.
Immediately following our service we will have our Winter Congregational Meeting at 11 am in-person in the Worship Center and live-streamed on YouTube and at lakeave.org/leadership. We will vote in new members, hear updates from church leadership, vote on a temporary Bylaw provision related to our Nominating Committee process and more. This will be a very important meeting you won't want to miss.
Then at 6 pm, we will be hosting our second gathering of "The Practice,” a monthly time of worship and sharing for those who serve at Lake in any capacity - or who want to serve and want to find out more. Join us this Sunday in FL 300 (Warehouse). You don’t need to reserve a space in advance - unless you require childcare. You can register for childcare at our future gatherings by visiting our website and searching the keyword: thepractice
Lastly, if you are not already subscribed to the Senior Pastor Leadership Update newsletter, the Senior Pastor Search Committee has exciting news to share with the LAC Family. A candidate has been unanimously identified by the committee. You can read their latest update at https://bit.ly/3pAzT5i
In the coming weeks, there will be opportunities for the LAC Family to meet the candidate with a vote to formally call the Senior Pastor at a Special Congregational Meeting on Sunday, March 20, at 11 am in the Worship Center.
