Routing to LACP interface Cisco

We have 2 ISP providing us with internet access. One of them uses LACP to do the load balancing on their interface. They use Port-channel 1 in routed mode to connect to our LACP interfaces and they assigned an IP to get the connection stablished. We have our GiEthe interfaces with lacp on layer 2 (switchport) mode. Is there a way to do the switch of our interfaces into routed mode withour having to take down the LACP switchport interfaces? We tested first to take switchport out to assign and IP on the Port-channel but took the interface down. We were thinking also on creating a new routed more port-channel 2.

Thanks, here is a copy of the LACP interfaces and the PORT-CHANNEL1 interfaces
