Welcome to LCI!
We are glad you are worshipping with us this morning. If you are a visitor and have any questions or
need assistance, feel free to ask one of the ushers or anyone seated near you. Please take a moment to
fill in the Friendship Folder when it is passed down the row. Check any boxes that apply and return it
to the center aisle. We look forward to getting to know you!
We extend a special welcome to families with young children. We hope your worship experience at
LCI will be meaningful for all members of your family. There are blue craft bags, filled with
activities to keep kids engaged, available in the entry of the sanctuary. Also, children who have been
receiving Communion at another church are welcome to do so at LCI. Please have them hold out
their hands when it is time to be served. If you would like your children to start receiving
Communion, contact Pastor Dan. Finally, nursery care is available for children under the age of 6.
The nursery is located in the portable trailer in the parking lot.
And a warm welcome to UCD students! We are happy you are worshipping with us today and hope
you will make us your church home. Be sure to visit your Lutheran Episcopal Campus Ministry at
UCD. It sponsors a number of events at The Belfry (216 A Street).

Our Shared Life and Ministry
October’s Monthly Ministry Partner (MMP) is
Lutheran Social Services
Lutheran Social Services of Northern California,
responding to the biblical mandates of compassion
and justice, affirms the inherent worth of all people and
strives to prevent and alleviate human suffering. Our
services are provided to the most vulnerable and hardest to
serve - the chronically homeless, the disabled, low-income
families, people with AIDS, the elderly, former foster youth
and other at-risk populations. Supportive services include
case management and living skills assistance, mental
health and substance abuse recovery services, benefits and
educational support, and health access.
Our goal is to maintain individuals and families in housing,
help them to find employment and become self-sufficient.
And we succeed! Many of our programs have a 100%
housing retention rate after one year, which is one of our
benchmarks. LSS changes lives every day!

50 Years of Growing in Grace, Serving in Love
Join us for Worship as we Celebrate our Roots on
Sunday, November 30, 2014 - 9:30 am at the
Varsity Theater in Downtown Davis
It was on November 29, 1964 when the original members
of the Lutheran Church of the Incarnation celebrated their
first worship service on the second floor of the Brinley
Building at Second and E Streets in Davis. Pastor Art Henry
was the pastor at that time. In the fall of 1966, LCI began
worshipping at the Varsity Theater until the new church at
1701 Russell Blvd. was built.
LCI is a community that prays for one another. If you would like
a prayer request added to the prayer chain and included here
and in the pastoral prayers of intercession, please contact Carole
Franti at [email protected] or (530) 756-3601, and also the
church office at (530) 756-5500 or [email protected] General
prayer requests remain on the list for 4 weeks; special prayer
requests for 2 weeks. We pray this week for. . .
