Special Congregational Meeting Called for Sunday, October 7, 2018

11:45AM in the Sanctuary


Purpose of the meeting:

  1. to receive a recommendation to sell the two vacant lots immediately south of our Campus to reduce current debt of $1.8 million
  2. to secure the services of an experienced land broker
  3. to launch a three-year Capital Campaign beginning 1/1/2020 to further reduce indebtedness, expand mission partnership, address staff compensation inequities, and make needed capital improvements
  4. To elect members to the Nominating Team to nominate candidates to serve on the Board and other constitutionally required teams/committees of LoC.  Nominating Team members serve for one year

“Debt Reduction leads to Mission Expansion” the leadership of Love of Christ is seeking to address how we might free up ministry resources currently servicing debt so that they might be available to be put to work in expanding faith formation, disciple-making, and mission partnership.  Every voting member of Love of Christ is encouraged to attend. If you are a confirmed member or were received as a regular member of LoC you are a voting member. A specific invitation is being mailed to all voting member households and will be posted in the weekly ENews.

“Love Always, Lenny”
Friday, January 18, 2019, 7pm
in the Center of Compassion

Friday, January 18, 2019 is a date you must mark in your calendar… right now! We have the extraordinary privilege of hosting the Phoenix Opera here in our CoC.  They will be performing “Love Always, Lenny” a musical celebration in honor of the 100th Anniversary of the birth of Leonard Bernstein. Some of his music that you may be familiar with is: West Side Story, On the Town and Candide, as well as songs by Gershwin and Copland, who inspired and influenced Bernstein’s compositions.  I feel pretty, I’ve got Rhythm, Summertime, Maria and so much more, including narration and anecdotes by Metropolitan Opera’s Gail Dubinbaum, a favorite Mezzo-Soprano of Maestro Bernstein.

This is a perfect opportunity to enjoy a fabulous evening of wonderful music. You won’t have to go to Phoenix, pay for parking and walk to the opera house.  You can wear fancy clothing or be casual! Our parking lot is FREE!! You can enjoy refreshments at intermission and chat with your friends. You can enrich your soul with this beautiful music in the comfort of Love of Christ Church, something you shouldn’t pass up. 

Ticket sales start on Sunday, Dec. 2 after each service.

$18 per adult, $10 per child (9 years old and above) and $25 at the door (January 18, 2019)
