LCC’s Response to the Coronavirus (COVID-19)

COVID-19 Update 

We are all receiving emails from different organizations about the ongoing Coronavirus concerns around the world. Here at LCC and in the greater faith community of Libertyville, we have been discussing it and making plans for the future together.

The first and most important thing we have to say about this is that God is still faithful and in control. While a serious health concern for many, this is also a good opportunity to grow your trust in God. Like so many of our heroes in scripture, we are called to put our faith in God but also to be wise. This outbreak did not surprise God, nor should it surprise us.

Worship
We are canceling our usual attended worship services and will instead be streaming our worship services through the LCC YouTube channel. These will be streamed at our usual time (Sunday morning at 10:30am) and we encourage you all to join us on your devices. We recommend joining us at that time for the live feed (rather than just watching later) for a
few reasons. First of all, it is important for us to have some normalcy in our lives, and worship can be that anchor for us. But second of all, there is a running chat on that page which we will be using to supplement the worship experience. 

Here is the updated information sent to the congregation on March 17th:

COVID-19 – Update – March 17th, 2020


Pastor Steve’s Blog 

Here you will find a new Pastor’s Blog, with a short devotional thought about life in a COVID-19 world. There will be a new devo each day with scripture, a thought, and questions to answer. You can use this for personal devotions, family time together, or in an online group setting.

Worship – Holy Week

This week is Holy Week, the celebration of Jesus’ last week before His resurrection. And while this week is unlike any other Holy Week we’ve experienced, we still want to commemorate, celebrate and remember it together. To that end, we’ve got a number of different ways we can be together as a church and as The Church this week.

This Thursday, called Maundy Thursday, Jews for Jesus is hosting a virtual “Christ in the Passover” presentation. Occuring at 1pm, 7pm and 9pm, these one-hour live streams will share the link between the Old Testament Passover celebration and Jesus’ Last Supper. To attend, simply click here to register for free.

This Friday, called Good Friday, we will be sharing a streaming Good Friday worship service. Through dramatic readings of scripture, songs, and prayer, we will remember Jesus’ crucifixion together as we prepare for Resurrection Sunday. Join us on our LCC YouTube channel Friday night at 7pm.

This Sunday is Resurrection Sunday, the greatest celebration of the Christian year. While government regulations keep us from celebrating in person, we will still celebrate together this Sunday. With trumpets, a virtual Children’s Choir, testimonials and special music by Rachel Couleur, and scripture reading by our own Mark Cederberg, we will celebrate Jesus’ resurrection this Sunday morning at 10:30am on our LCC YouTube channel.

As we shelter at home both to keep us safe and to protect the most vulnerable in our communities, we continue to worship, learn about, and serve the God who saves us. This week, make a special effort to offer the peace of God, the joy of the Holy Spirit, and the hope of the resurrection to those around you.

Many blessings this Holy Week,
Pastor Steve

Virtual Small Groups are here!

Christian community is an important aspect of our life together as a church, and a vital element of how we get to love, serve, know, and mutually support and encourage one another. This is a long standing Christian practice. For instance, in the book of Philippians, we encounter Paul and the church in Philippi mutually encouraging and supporting to each other. Paul wrote in his letter that the church “sent aid more than once” to Paul. This illustrates the fact that we can be socially distant but still practice mutual support and encouragement

As we continue worshipping (and do life) with the aid of technology, we want to start Virtual Small Groups at LCC, meeting in small groups while maintaining proper social distancing guidelines.  A virtual small group is an intentional space consisting of 3-11 people who meet regularly online to pursue spiritual growth, social connection, and support. Examples of groups might include book discussion, prayer, bible study, bible reading, mutual encouragement, or simple fellowship.

To participate in an LCC Virtual Small Group, you can sign up for one with this form (click here) or email Zachs Gaiya, our Pastor in Residence at zzgaiya@tiu.edu.  Please fill in or send your name, email, days and times that would work for you, and whether you would rather be a participant or a facilitator.

At a later date, we will provide facilitators with additional information like “how to host a group online,” “suggested online group platforms,” and “best practices for virtual small groups.”  

If you have any questions, please email Zachs at zzgaiya@tiu.edu.

We welcomed 12 new members to LCC!
