growSo far we’ve had two Challenges to Grow: one to read the bible together in a year (see below), and the second to Serve Others in our Community.  As we begin moving forward with our “Challenge to Grow in Serving Others”, I wanted to clarify what “Serving Others” means in this context.
“Serving” in a Missional sense means that what we do is for the Kingdom of God.  This can include serving with one of our established Mission opportunities or on our own.  We can help populations in need or a neighbor next door.  The possibilities are endless.

“Others” means that we are serving people outside our LCC Family.  There will be other opportunities to serve one another in our LCC family, but for this Challenge, we’re going to focus on our surrounding neighborhoods/counties.
So, whenever you find yourself serving another, we want to know about it for this challenge, and you can do this in a number of ways.  First, you can use this Google Doc (or click the picture above to access it).  It’s a simple form that goes immediately to the office.  Second, you can fill out one of our Challenged to Grow cards in the entryway at church.  Just drop it in the offering plate or church office.  Third, you can just email us at the office with the month you served, where you served and the number of hours spent serving.
Let me assure you that this is not a test and records will not be kept beyond this year.  Your name will never be used and we won’t be checking to see who serves and who doesn’t.  The names are only used to avoid double counting and the number of hours only for our total tally.
Can we reach 200 hours every month this year?  I believe we can, and probably so much more.  So lets see what God can do through us as we make this world reflect His Kingdom a little bit more in 2015.
