Where can you get plugged in at LCC?

Each September LCC has an opportunity to participate iwith our ELCA community. The second Sunday in September is “God’s Work Our Hands” Sunday. It is an opportunity to celebrate who we are as the ELCA and dedicate one day to serve communities in ways that share the love of God with all people.

Each year many foster youth turn 18 years old and “age out” of the foster care system in Pinellas County, regardless of ability or resources. Ready For Life is an organization that supports the material and emotional needs of these young adults. During the Christmas season LCC supports Ready for Life through our Angel Tree gifts.
