Local Announcements Feb 22, 2020

I-70 CLOSURE CONTINUES THRU MONDAY FEB 24:
A reminder for brethren leaving after Church services this afternoon, to avoid trying to use either traffic direction of I-70 (and associated ramps), between I-435 on the west and Hwy-291/I-470 on the east.  As announced last week, you will need to find alternative routes if your travels normally include I-70 in this immediate area.  Closure schedule dates are weather-dependent.

EMAIL ADDRESS ISSUE:
A reminder email about the I-70 closure was sent out to all Brethren yesterday (Friday).  If you did not receive yesterday’s email, or otherwise know your email address has changed, please go to the kclcg.org website; then under the “Helpful Links” tab, go to the page “Update Email.”  Alternatively, provide your current email address to either Mr. Bobby Jacques or Mr. John Wells.

READ IN ALL AREAS, FROM HEADQUARTERS:
In keeping with Church tradition, we want to keep services with the utmost respect & reverence.  Even though we have options like coffee service & snacks, or other foods given away, we need to remember why we are here and to respect the sanctity of the service.  A practice that we want to avoid becoming tradition is that of drinking coffee or other drinks, and eating during services.  Except for speakers who may need something for a dry mouth, or small children, or that rare individual who has a medical condition requiring it, we ought not eat or drink during services.  Thank you for preserving our good traditions and avoiding practices that we do not want to become traditions in the Living Church of God.

MEN’S TRAINING CAMP – UPPER MIDWEST USA – AUG 14-16
Looking ahead to next summer, from August 14–16, 2020 (Friday evening to noon on Sunday), we will have our first Men’s Training Camp in the Upper Midwest area.  The location will most likely be east central Wisconsin.  The Men’s Training Camp is open to all men, age 16 and over, from around the country.  The purpose of the event is to gather together as men to learn to be better husbands, fathers, and Christians.  We also build bonds of fellowship and worship God, looking to Him for help in becoming the strong Christian men we need to be in this confused world.  More details will be forthcoming in the weeks and months ahead.  If you have any questions, please contact Mr. Bob Rodzaj at brodzaj@lcg.org.  A sign-up list is available on the Information Table.  Apart from the sign-up list, we would like a show of hands as to those men interested in attending the Men’s Training Camp next August, asking that the ushers would do the counting, with the total count turned-in to Mr. Jacques.
