GOD SPACE

The 6-session all-church study on Wednesday evenings will be January 13-February 17. The online sign-up offers three options: (1) attend in-person each Wednesday evening, coming for the study at 6:30 p.m. in the Ark with no meal. (2) attend the study in-person AND join in a FREE meal together at 5:30 p.m. (3) attend each session via live-streaming. The God Space book cost is $10 and will be available following worship services, by stopping by the church office during regular office hours, or at the first meeting if you attend in-person. If you will be attending via live-streaming and are unable to get your God Space book at church, check the book order box on the online sign-up and someone will contact you to arrange getting the book to you.



There will be a congregational meeting on Sunday, January 24 at 9:30 a.m. in the Ark for the purpose of receiving the annual report and electing at-large members to the nominating team. Please join us for this important meeting. 
Lenten Devotional
Writers NEEDED!

On Easter morning, the traditional first hymn we sing at worship services is “Christ the Lord is Risen Today.” As the third verse of this hymn reminds us, Easter celebrates that “Love’s redeeming work is done.”  That redeeming work is the focus of John’s gospel and this Lenten devotional. It is a gospel about Christ giving sight to the blind and hope to sinners, modelling a servant ministry for the disciples, atoning for our sins, being the first-born in the resurrection, and promising the Holy Spirit.You are invited to contribute to this year’s Lenten devotional by signing up online no later than January 10. Questions? Contact Nina Dorsch at ninadorsch@sbcglobal.net or 513-228-0038.

The church building is open for worship on Sunday morning, with traditional worship at 8:30 and 10 a.m. in the Sanctuary and modern worship at 11 a.m. in the Ark.

Nursery Care is available during all 3 worship services.

One-half of the Sanctuary is open seating, where people are responsible for observing their own social distancing. The other half is marked with tape to preserve social distancing, with seating in every other pew.

Effective January 1, 2021: All people are to wear a facemask in the LPC building unless you feel it is a barrier to your ability to worship God. Thank you for your understanding. Masks are still required at the 10 a.m. service.

Also, we ask that you please enter and exit the church through the front of the building and not use the back door at this time. If you are in a high-risk category because of your age and/or health, we urge you to please stay home and worship with us by live-streaming.
