LTC Final Wrap-up & Video

We had a great time last Sunday night celebrating the accomplishments of our students.  Nearly 90 students and their families were there to join in the fellowship and fun!  Thank you to all the coaches who worked hard and modeled Christ as the students prepared.  Thank you to all the parents who make the effort to get the students to practices and then join in the fun at the conference in Indy. Thank you to Whitney deSambourg, and Shawn & Sherry Stone for working with me on the leadership team!  Thanks to all the students for your hard work and commitment to one another pull off another great year at LTC.  You can see a list of the students and their awards HERE.  Enjoy the following video that we shared at the LTC Celebration.

Fun Help! Let’s fly a kite.

imagesThe Lafayette Children’s Ministry is in need of your help. On Saturday, April 9th they are hosting a Kite Flying day at the church building from 9 am to 11:30.

“We plan to assemble kites, then fly them in the side yard and parking lot. Our kiddos have LOTS of enthusiasm, but are somewhat lacking in expertise!  We would really appreciate some  assistance from some of the teens, plus they look to them as their role models and very much enjoy being with them! There will be snacks provided.”

Please see Cindy Finch on Sunday or contact her at or call/text at 314-609-7269.
