Membership Class
Sunday, November 9, 10 a.m.

Have you wondered how to learn about the vision of the church, get more involved and be considered an official member? If so, make plans to attend the membership class on Sunday, November 9. Check your kids in as usual, and go directly to the Righteousness Room, located near the Canopy Lobby. Class begins at 10 a.m. You will be given a CD of the service you missed, as well as some materials that will help you grow spiritually. The class is open for all from 6th grade up through adults. Please sign up at the Connect Center by Wednesday, November 5.

Getting a Grip on the Basics Classes
Classes start Wednesday, October 29

Would you like to really learn the basics of God’s Word? Get a grip on the basics of your faith? In the same way that physical laws govern the natural world, God has set in motion spiritual laws that govern our relationship and our experience with Him, in living the dynamic victorious Christian life. In our “Getting a Grip on the Basics” classes, we get into the Word of God to discover the basics of our faith and the spiritual laws God has established. Whether you’re a new, young or seasoned believer, this is a great class for learning God’s Word and being reminded of the basics of God’s Word. You can sign up for the class and pay $5 for the required book (this is a 50% discount for class attendees) at the Connect Center or online. You will receive your book at the first class. Classes will be held each Wednesday evening in the Liberty Room. You will be dismissed from the regular service to attend the class. The class session is 12 weeks. Join us! It will be life-changing! Class size is limited, so sign up early.

Prayer and Praise Service
The Lord does not just want you to pray, He needs you to pray! Let's get out of the “have to” mentality and get into the “I get to” mentality of prayer. The way heaven is displayed upon the earth is through His Church (or Body). You have a supply to add to this mighty move of God, so bring it and release it as we join our hearts and faith together, the 1st and 3rd Sunday of each month at 6 p.m.

Sunday Morning Coffee
Sundays, before service
Before you head into service, hit up the Courtyard Cafe for coffee and juice! The inviting atmosphere of the Courtyard provides a great place to catch up with friends!

Singles Connected 30+
Movie night 
Friday, October 24, 6:30-11 p.m.

Come join us as we watch the movie that we’ve heard so much about, God’s Not Dead. When an atheist Philosophy professor insists the new students declare that “God is dead,” Josh, a student that is unable to do this, is challenged to defend his faith and prove to the class that God’s not dead. Against all odds, Josh stands up for his faith and takes on the challenge. Let the debate begin! You won’t want to miss this movie. Invite a friend to join us. We will begin the evening at 6:30 p.m., with fellowship and food in the Courtyard. Please bring a favorite finger food to share with others. Drinks and tableware will be provided. Childcare is not provided. Please use door I in the Children’s Building.
The Summit (18-29)

Jewels Praying Mommas
2nd and 4th Thursdays, 10 am

Then as I looked over the situation, I called together the nobles and the rest of the people and said to them, “Don't be afraid of the enemy! Remember the Lord, who is great and glorious, AND FIGHT FOR YOUR BROTHERS, YOUR SONS, YOUR DAUGHTERS, YOUR WIVES, AND YOUR HOMES!”
(Nehemiah 4:14 NLT)
Praying Mommas, it's your time to get together as a powerful prayer force for your family and the families of LOTWCC. There are those in the world that look like a praying mantis because of their “prayer like” posture but inwardly they are a “preying mantis” seeking whom they may devour. But we Praying Mommas say, 'No, devil! Hands off! Our kids are God's possession! Our children shall fulfill the plan of God for their life and bring glory and honor to their King, Jesus!”
Praying Mommas, join us every 2nd and 4th Thursday of the month at 10 a.m. in the Summit Room to agree in prayer, plead the Blood of Jesus over our kids and see the salvation of the Lord in each precious life. Please enter through Children’s door “I.” Childcare
is available for infants through 4th grade. Please sign up to let us know if you will need childcare.
