All graduating students and their families were invited to attend the annual Baccalaureate service. The ICC offers this service every year to give thanks to God for the accomplishments of our graduates, and to pray for their success in the future. Whether they’re going on to employment, military service, or further schooling, we hope to remind graduates that they never leave God’s loving care. The Lyons Inter Church Council (ICC) is an ecumenical Christian group dedicated to serving the people of Lyons in the name of Christ. The ICC sponsors the Lyons Food Pantry, in addition to hosting several community events throughout the year. It is comprised of First Lutheran Church, Grace Episcopal Church Mission, Mount Zion Missionary Baptist Church, Lyons Presbyterian Church, St. John’s Lutheran Church, the Roman Catholic Parish of St. Joseph the Worker at St. Michael’s Church, and Lyons United Methodist Church.
