Heifer International and LCC have a long relationship. The Faith Formation offering that is placed in the Miracle Jar each Sunday by our children is used to purchase Heifer gifts. We have been able to donate thousands of dollars to this worthy cause over the past several years. Additionally, our youth groups have twice traveled to the Heifer farm in Massachusetts on their annual mission trip.
The Heifer Gift Market table will be set up in the Parlor so that you will be able to purchase an animal in honor of a loved one. Payments are due to the church office by December 31, 2017. Please make your check payable to Lakewood Congregational Church with Heifer in the memo line.
See the Heifer Market price list on page 9 of the December Columns.
Make sure to take an Angel from the tree in the sanctuary to support Project Angel Tree. Gifts are due back on Wednesday, December 13th and will be delivered on Saturday, December 16th. There is a signup sheet in the W. Clifton hallway for drivers.

The Children’s & Adult Faith Formation Teams are planning an LCC Retreat at Templed Hills in Bellville, Ohio. The retreat will begin on Saturday, February 10th at 11am and will end on Sunday, February 11th at 1pm. We have reserved Memorial Hall which accommodates up to 48 people for our All Age Retreat.
The cost for one night/4 meals is $63.85 per adult and $41.10 per child (age 6-11).
There are a variety of room variations for couples, singles, and families. The Children’s and Adult Faith Formation Teams will provide some programming but the essence of the Retreat will be to enjoy the beautiful outdoors and really get to know each other indoors.
