We praise the Lord for this far he has brought us as individuals and families of LUC, who constitute God’s family in His Church. We thank God for His faithfulness and mercy.
Last year marked very exciting moments both in our pulpit and in the pews as we engaged biblical characters who challenged our lives and spirituality in amazing ways. The idea was to bring the characters close to our own lives not just in spiritual perspective but in ordinary and mundane aspects of our lives. This has meant agreat deal in the journey towards spiritual formation of individuals, families and the body of Christ.
I am sure many can give a testimony that we are currently not where we began in the beginning of last
year 2018.
Faith is basically a journey that must be lived and experienced. We continue this year to explore the theme “The Evidence of God’s Grace”. Christian life must be a life of fruitfulness manifested by God’s presence in our lives through the gifts of His spirit and the fruit of the Spirit. Without this evidence of Grace, we deny the power of God and our witness to the world becomes ineffective.
It is my hope that we will become the ‘evidence of God’s Grace’ to the world and continue to manifest the same through our witness and mission. May the good Lord continue His favour upon you as we move from grace upon grace.

Below is a list of the monthly series that will guide us tackle our Annual Theme.
