Adopt a Light Campaign
We are in the process of changing the outdoor lighting in the church to LED lighting. This will provide us a better lighting at night around the church and will cut our electrical bill significantly. The cost of the project is $10,000.00. Thank you to Jean and Deanna Abi Assi and their family for their donation towards this project. We still need to raise $5,000.00. Everyone is invited to participate at a level that is meaningful to them. We thank you in advance for your support and generosity.
The LAS will be having a Lebanese Luncheon on Sunday, June 4, 2017 after the 11:00 AM Liturgy at the MCC. Menu: Kibbe Sandwiches, Salad, and French Fries. The cost is $10.00 per person.
