Petting Zoo!

April 22nd is Good Shepherd Sunday at LCM – Please Join Us and Bring a Friend!

“All God’s Critters Got a Place in the Choir.” Come to LCM on Good Shepherd Sunday, April 22nd, and enjoy the sounds of many of God’s critters present. A pet lamb will be invited to join the children at the time of the children’s story and blessing. All are invited to greet the animals in the petting zoo in the church’s front yard immediately following the 10:00 a.m. worship.

Friendly Farms LTD of DeKalb will be here that day from 10:00 a.m. to noon. A petting zoo will be available for our Sunday School and Preschool children throughout the worship hour and for approximately an hour afterwards. All are welcome! We hope that many in the surrounding community will come by LCM that morning to visit and to enjoy the petting zoo. (Note: This is a free petting zoo.)

April 22nd is also “Bring a Friend Sunday.” Our obligation as followers of Jesus includes inviting others to join in a faith journey with Jesus. Inviting friends to church is not an easy task for Lutherans. So, everyone, please move out of your comfort zone and invite a friend, neighbor, brother or sister to join you in church on April 22nd. A petting zoo, lots of children and a reception of new members will make the day even more special…Who knows, your invited friend may just ask, “Can I return?”
