May you be blessed as God speaks to you through the words that are God inspired. Click here to download Bible readings.

LWR, EKLC Food Drive & Sunday School
The Sunday School Youth recently had an opportunity to learn more about helping others in need with a fall food drive.

Click here to see what they chose!
