We give thanks for God’s provision of New Members
At MLLC we continue to give thanks to God for his provision of new members of the congregation. We welcome new members through various means:
*the Sacrament of Holy Baptism, at any age.
*by affirmation of faith for those who have been baptized previously in another Christian faith community. Often these individuals have not been a member of congregation for a number of years.
*by transfer from another Lutheran or other Christian congregation.
If you are interested in being baptized or becoming a member of MLLC, please contact the Pastor David Tinker at the church office: 979-278-3388 or by email: firstname.lastname@example.org
