A Spiritual Journey
Following the Footsteps of Jesus Christ Our Lord
Wednesday, January 23, 6:30-7:30
We are excited to host Raed Makhouli at Landmark to guide us on a visual tour of Israel focusing on the places where Jesus walked. Raed lives in Galilee where he works as a registered tour guide with the Israeli Ministry of Tourism. Combining love of Jesus and detailed knowledge of both Scripture and the land of Israel, Raed will open your eyes to new insights into the life of Christ. There is no charge for attending, but we will take a freewill offering to support Raed. Don’t miss out on this special opportunity right here at our church!
Welcome to the Family Class

The Guy Challenge
Desperados - In Reckless Pursuit of a Relentless Jesus
Friday-Saturday, March 1-2
All men and boys (Middle School aged and older) are invited to join guys from all over the state right here at Landmark for The Guy Challenge. The Guy Challenge is an event built exclusively for men – a time to relax, laugh, and eat well all while getting inspired, encouraged and challenged. The event starts on Friday at 7 PM and ends on Saturday at 3 PM.
This year’s speaker is Dr. David Clark from Central Christian Church in Beloit. James Allen Hall (JAH) will again be leading worship. For recreation, the fellowship hall will be set up for ax throwing – so come test your skills (and try not to break anything). A special session on Saturday will feature our very own Bill Borland and Harold Baughman talking about their experiences in WWII, an opportunity to hear from true men of honor.
Early registration is $25. Ages 25 and under are FREE! You may register online at guychallenge.org or by mailing in a registration form located on the bulletin board across from the kitchen. See Brad if you have any questions.

Church Cleaners Needed
Let’s keep our facility looking great!
The church is need of new volunteers to clean our building. You may sign up on the sheet in the hallway by the kitchen. It takes one person about three hours to clean the building. So put together a crew and you can do it in less than an hour. This is a great opportunity for families, couples or groups to serve the Lord together.

WOW and WOW-Chow
WOW (Worship on Wednesday) has a new feature this year – WOW-Chow! We will be serving a meal at 6:00 before we begin classes for all ages at 6:30. Everyone is invited to skip the stress of preparing a Wednesday meal and instead join us for a time of relaxing with family and friends. There is no charge for the meal but donations will be accepted. You do not need to come to the meal to attend class.
KhunYuam Christian Youth Hostel – Student Sponsorship
Landmark Christian Church has partnered with the KhunYuam Christian Youth Hostel, in KhunYuam, Thailand since 2003. The youth hostel was created so that children that live in the mountainous regions of Northwest Thailand, specifically the Mae Hong Song Province, could attend school. Often times the village a student lived in did not have a school.
There are currently 80 students at the youth hostel; they range in age from 6-18. They live at the hostelmand attend school in KhunYuam during the school year but live with their parents when school is not in session.
Landmark has a sponsorship program and from time to time a new student needs a sponsor. The sponsorship is $15.00 per month – that $15.00 is used as follows; $5.00 is used to purchase rice for meals, $2.50 is used to provide items for their dorms, $2.50 goes directly to the student for spending money, $2.00 goes into a travel fund, $2.00 goes into a college scholarship fund and the last $1.00 goes into a fund for a Christmas celebration.
During the day, the students attend the local school appropriate for their age. During the evening, after doing their homework, the children are taught how to be followers of Jesus. The learn the Bible, pray and sing. The older students lead worship and prayer for both the younger students and for the local churches each weekend.
Members of Landmark Christian Church have been blessed to be able to visit the youth hostel, its students and staff every three years. We are currently working on a having a couple of the graduating students visit us here at Landmark each spring.
Thailand Mission Trip
Every three years Landmark Christian Church has had the opportunity to travel to KhunYuam, Thailand on a mission trip. We have formed a bond with the faculty, staff and students that live at the KhunYuam Christian Youth Hostel. In the past 14 years we have made multiple trips to KhunYuam. During each trip we have accomplished some type of work project but our favorite times at the youth hostel have been spending time with the children and worshipping with their families.
