Next Annual Gathering:
LCMC 18th Annual Gathering
October 7-10, 2018 @ HyVee Hall, 730 3rd Street, Des Moines, IA 50309
"Growing Up" is the theme of our next Annual Gathering, and we've invited Dr. Kent Hunter of Church Doctor Ministries to help us to consider how congregations of any size can be focused on the Great Commission and develop a kingdom mindset. Jo Kinnard will be returning this year to serve as our Bible study leader as we reflect on the text of Ephesians 4. It is time for our churches to “grow up” and become mature, hearing the call for every member to carry out the work of ministry as God has designed His Church to do. SPEAKERS >>
- Fellowship Meet-Ups: We're offering several opportunities to get connected with a fellowship group, join a district, network with other LCMC-ers, or reunite with old friends and colleagues. FELLOWSHIP MEET-UPS >>
