Covid-19 Update and Info

Friday, May 29, 2020

Church Family,

Thank you for your continued prayer for the leadership of LFC as we prayerfully consider the next steps to take as we all look forward to a return to meeting together and some form of normalcy for our country in general, and our church in particular. Our Elder council is meeting regularly to prayerfully talk through the ever-changing national and state mandates and how to best apply them to our church family. Please know that we are actively engaged in deciding each new step for LFC based on what is best for our people and what is best for fulfilling our Gospel call as a church.

Here are few updates about what is happening at Lafayette Federated Church.

  • Please join us this Sunday night, May 31 at 7pm in the parking lot for a Communion service. One of the most important times in the life of a local church is sharing the Lord’s Supper together. It is certainly an act of “communion” with God, but it is also an act of “communion” with one another. The service will include singing, a brief devotional, and the taking of the Lord’s Supper together. We will be using pre-packaged cups and wafers, and will continue to practice the recommended social distancing practices, including staying in our vehicles. We will send you the words for the songs via email on Friday.
  • Ladies, there is a new Tuesday night Bible study starting this Tuesday at 7 pm. The study, entitled “Jesus Over Everything” will be led by Trisha Bailey via Zoom. See the attached “Connection Points” PDF for the link.
  • Parents of Graduates- Please don’t forget to get us your information for Graduate Recognition Sunday (June 14th). In addition to the information about school, grade level, etc., if you are willing and able, we would love to share a photo of your graduate as part of our presentation. Photos should be attached to an email via digital copy/scan. All photos and information can be emailed to office@lfc.org.
  • Don’t forget that applications are being received for the 2020 LFC scholarships. Everyone should have received an email outlining the process for applying for the 2020 Pastor Luthman and Pastor Mangione/John Heida Scholarships this year. If you have any questions, please contact Jerrine Drew at 973-670-8089
  • This week’s giving was $13, 442. Also, you should have received your 1st quarter giving statements via email. If you have any questions about the statement, or didn’t receive one, please contact the church office.

In Christ,

Pastor Aaron
