Sunday, July 24 – Called to Care

This Sunday we welcome Lisa Winkie, director of Marion Cares – a faith-based, non-profit agency serving the needs of children and families in the Marion Independent and Linn-Mar School systems. Marion Cares helps hundreds of local children and families each year through programs like TxT Time, homework help, backpack and school supplies drives, and clothing and food drives. Lisa will share stories of the good work done by this local ministry and how we can all get involved.

Serving – After you hear about Marion Cares in worship this week, you’ll want to jump headfirst into their caring work! Pick up a Backpack card as you leave and put together a backpack full of school supplies for one of our young neighbors in need.

RightNow Media is an incredible video library of over 3,400 videos for adults, kids, and youth that can be streamed to any device at any time. If 11 people sign up this week, LCR will receive a free AppleTV unit to use for our discipleship programs! Email us at and we’ll submit your address to RNM. You will then receive an invitation that allows you to sign up for this amazing resource.

Save the Date – Rally Sunday will be on September 11 at 11:30 am. We’ll have a cook-out & potluck, Bounce House, snow cones, crafts, face-painting, karaoke, longest drive, punt/pass/kick, and kickball. Help us honor our local firefighters and police officers as we invite them to join us on this 15th anniversary of 9/11. Wear red, white, & blue for our “Living Flag!”
