News & Events
Don't miss out...keep up with us right here!
Many of us remember when Rev. Dr. Barry Moore and Alan Davidson presented Faith Story to us. Many of us remember enjoying it and learning from it but 10 plus years erases a lot of details. In a world where there is great division in the name of religion, it might be a good time to refresh your memory about the history behind the Jewish, Christian and Muslim faiths and how our different faiths are just 3 branches of the same family. Some traditions differ but we all worship the same God. You can listen to Faith Story through the ‘Links’ page and Alan Davidson still has copies of the CD available at $20.00 each.
We’re delighted to announce that our own, Jan Linner, took on the responsibilities of being LUC’s parish advocate as of September 1st, 2016. In this role her email is email@example.com. Jan’s lecture on stress and managing stress can be seen here. Congratulations to Jan on the completion of her certification as a Parish nurse.
