LABC Update – Saturday, December 23, 2023

December 21, 2023





Here we all are in a photo taken in February. 2023 was a year filled with many reasons for gratitude. We had opportunities to get together. We had good health. We were surrounded by people we love.

Some highlights:

Ethan and Dominique got engaged. Their wedding will be August 31, 2024.

The D Brothers followed the Tour de France and Volta Espana bicycle races closely and then went outside to practice their ascents and descents.

The H Brothers loved playing soccer, Henry for the Blazing Apples (coached by Aaron) and Hudson for the Giant Kirbys.

Eleanor Grace continued to find her voice. On the Wednesday before Thanksgiving she and her brothers were spending the day with us. She and Karen decided to do an art project that included coloring and cutting. When it came to cutting Karen attempted to help guide the scissors. “No help, YaYa” she was sternly informed as Ella pushed her hands away. When Karen again tried to assist she was firmly instructed “YaYa, go clean!”

Our hope is that whether they are telling you to “go clean” or singing “joy to the world,” there will be happy voices in your lives this Christmas.


Much Love,

Pastor Jim and Karen
