And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him. - Colossians 3:17
Give it your best! We’ve all heard that from a parent, teacher, coach or LAC Pastor! Our 2017 Stewardship theme is LAC Spirit: Giving it Our Best. The spirit at LAC is thriving, thanks to all of us, and the faith and fervor we bring to church.
The Bible teaches us to honor God by doing our best in whatever we do. At Larchmont Avenue Church, we demonstrate giving it our best through the important things we do throughout the year. It’s not hard find examples. Whether it is supporting Syrian refugees through Church and Society, a Midnight Run with SHiFT, or helping school children with necessary school supplies before they start the year, LAC is constantly demonstrating its strong spiritual commitment to giving it our best.
Our work at LAC depends on the support of our congregation. Over the past few years, LAC members have risen to the challenge to support our annual operating costs. As many of you know, our annual need for operating costs has risen as we apply endowment income to support costs to maintain our church building.
Our Stewardship totals have been $687,397 in 2012; $699,222 in 2013; $785,837 in 2014; $794,666 in 2015. These are very impressive numbers and show the spirit of our congregation to rise to the challenge of meeting our annual operating needs and supporting our building. But our financial needs continue to grow, and we are looking to our congregation to help maintain our budget.
Your commitment is a generous act. And it is very much appreciated. Please be enthusiastic about helping to shape our Church’s daily impact by faithfully giving your best. Together, we’ll celebrate the spirit at work within this church – and within us. LAC Spirit: Giving it Our Best.
