    A Note From Pastor Corey

    Man Carving Thanksgiving Turkey

    Hello LSMC!


    Many of you may know that due to the uptick of COVID-19 our church Session (board) decided it would be best to suspend in-person worship until after the first of the year. We will go back to virtual services starting this Sunday at 10:30am, we will continue the Prayer Line, Zoomcast, and Bible Study every other week. The EZKL Project will also be suspended until January, volunteering in support of Coldwater is still available, consider volunteering or making a donation. For more information about Coldwater opportunities, please contact Aimee Starr.


    In honor of the Thanksgiving holiday, here are 10 quotes of gratitude and thanksgiving.


    1. “Gratitude means thankfulness, counting your blessings, noticing simple pleasures, and acknowledging everything that you receive. It means learning to live your life as if everything were a miracle, and being aware on a continuous basis of how much you’ve been given.” ~ Marelisa Fábrega


    2. “Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.” ~ Melody Beattie


    3. “In the end, though, maybe we must all give up trying to pay back the people in this world who sustain our lives. In the end, maybe it’s wiser to surrender before the miraculous scope of human generosity and to just keep saying thank you, forever and sincerely, for as long as we have voices.” ~ Elizabeth Gilbert


    4. “And when I give thanks for the seemingly microscopic, I make a place for God to grow within me.” ~ Ann Voskamp


    5. “Do not spoil what you have by desiring what you have not; remember that what you now have was once among the things you only hoped for.” ~ Epicurus


    6. “Acknowledging the good that you already have in your life is the foundation for all abundance.” ~ Eckhart Tolle


    7. “I see the glass half full and thank God for what I have.” ~ Ana Monnar


    8. “Gratitude and love are always multiplied when you give freely. It is an infinite source of contentment and prosperous energy.” ~ Jim Fargiano


    9. “He who thanks but with the lips

    Thanks but in part;

    The full, the true Thanksgiving

    Comes from the heart.”

    ~ J.A. Shedd


    10. “The unthankful heart… discovers no mercies; but let the thankful heart sweep through the day and, as the magnet finds the iron, so it will find, in every hour, some heavenly blessings!” ~ Henry Ward Beecher


    Continue to pray for our communities, children, essential worker’s, and the world around us during these difficult times, this will all be over sooner than later, prayerfully!

            The Apocalypse 


            Starting November 5, 2020 at 7pm we will begin a new Bible Study format. We will no longer broadcast the study on facebook live, we will study via Zoom privately amongst our church congregation.


            The study will be on The Book of Revelation and we will use as a guide to the study a book called: Four Views On The Book Of Revelation This book can be found on Amazon and costs $15 for a hard copy or you can download to your Kindle for $5. Did the Apocalypse happen already, or are these events to come? Join us as we will explore these questions and more as we dig into this fascinating book of Scripture.

              Are you ready to come back to church? You're invited to join us at 2:30 PM at 425 SW Oldham Pkwy, Lee's Summit, MO 64081.


              Please note that we are able to resume services as safely as possible by following these rules:

              • Everyone is required to wear a mask covering their nose and mouth. This is required before, during, and after service. The only exception is for the pastor and worship leader(s) during service.
              • Temperatures will be checked at the door.
              • Everyone must sign-in before entering the sanctuary.
              • Observe social distancing by sitting with your family and staying 6' away from others. We have plenty of room in the sanctuary to spread out!
              • We are excited to worship together again too, but please refrain from hugging, shaking hands, and etc. We all have to do our part to keep each other safe.


              *This Sunday we will not have seperate children or student classes during service, but we are planning to have them again starting soon!


              If you wish to remain home, or are unable to attend, we will still be broadcasting the service on our Facebook page. This will be live at 2:30 PM.
