LPC will host a picnic following the service. Everyone from LPC, please bring a salad, side dish, or dessert to share with our guests. This is always a great time of praise and worship, good food and sweet fellowship with our brothers and sisters at First Baptist Church.

LPC will resume its standard Sunday service schedule with full Sunday School (see front page) beginning Sunday, September 11th. 

SUNDAY MUSE: LPC’s Summer Schedule ends with a bang on August 28th at 11:00 a.m. Sunday Muse, a modern folk band from the Philadelphia area, will be leading worship with new takes on old hymns and current praise songs. What a great way to celebrate the close of a joyous summer here at LPC! We look forward to seeing you there.
MEN’S SUMMER GET TOGETHER:  We’ve survived the heat wave! Celebrate the end of summer with the men of LPC at our rescheduled Summer Get Together this Saturday, August 27, at 2 p.m. We’ll meet at Lynn Likens’ house for food, bocce ball, and other games. Ease your way out of the summer with this relaxing afternoon filled with Christian fellowship! We look forward to seeing you there! To let us know you’re coming, contact Doug Jenkins at drjinx@verizon.net or call the church office.
 CAIRN BUS DRIVERS NEEDED! The Fall semester is about to kick off at Cairn University and we want to encourage students to worship with us! We’ll be providing the church bus for pick-up and drop-off a couple times every Sunday morning. We need drivers to make this happen! If you’d be interested in volunteering to drive, please see Marcos Ortega or Doug Jenkins, or you can call the church office.
schl12cSUPPLIES FOR THE SCHOOL YEAR: We will again be collecting school supplies for Hunting Park Christian Academy during the month of August. A list of specific items requested by HPCA is posted in the Narthex. The need is great and the list has something for everyone, so please be sure to stop by and sign up for one or more of the listed items that you are willing to provide.  Please drop the supplies off at church by Sunday, September 4th. Your Mission Committee thanks you for your continued support.
THE PENNIES, NICKELS AND DIMES JUG IS BACK: Dig out all that change you have been accumulating in pockets, washing machines, seat cushions or wherever and help fill the Pennies, Nickels and Dimes jugs in the Sanctuary during August. The money collected will be used to sponsor students under the Promised Land Ministries “Plan Padrino” school sponsorship program at the Spring of Hope mission in San Lucas Toliman.  Seven students attended school with money LPC members put in the jug last August.  This year two jugs are provided – one to be filled by women and one to be filled by the men. Let’s see which jug triumphs. Note: Paper money is also accepted!
