(Office hours: Monday – Friday, 8:00 – 4:00)

 

ANNUAL LABOR DAY JOINT WORSHIP SERVICE: This year’s joint service will be held on September 3rd at First Baptist Church of Langhorne, located “around the corner” at 215 East Richardson Avenue and Pine Street. Worship begins at 10:00 a.m. followed by a lunch hosted by First Baptist. Plan to bring a salad or dessert to share. This is always a great time of praise and worship, good food and sweet fellowship with our brothers and sisters at First Baptist Church.
FAREWELL MARCOS, ERIN, GRACIE AND ELLIE:  Marcos and Erin leave for a new call in New York at the end of this month. Join us for a farewell reception in the Fellowship Hall immediately following the 9:15 worship service on Sunday, August 27th (no contemporary worship that Sunday). Look for details in the mail.
  SCHOOL SUPPLIES NEEDED FOR HPCA: This year we are again collecting school supplies for Hunting Park Christian Academy, our mission partner in North Philadelphia. A sign-up sheet listing the items needed by HPCA is in the Narthex, and there is something for everyone. Donated items should be brought to LPC no later than Sunday, August 27. This is “Mission” in our back yard. Let’s help HPCA start the school year with a full supply closet!
 PENNIES, NICKELS, AND DIMES – AND MORE!  The familiar jugs are back  for the month of August with a new look. The orange Kids Jug and the blue Adults Jug will be placed on the Chancel steps and you all are encouraged to drop spare change and more in the appropriate jug as we support school scholarships for children in Guatemala. The generation with the greatest total contributions will receive the satisfaction of supporting God’s good work in San Lucas Toliman (as will the runner up!).
LPC PANTRY STILL IN DEMAND: Items most needed are: Ramen Noodles, bags of rice, Spam, boxes of dry cereal, snack crackers and bars, pudding cups, individual juice boxes, canned ravioli, pork and beans, and soups, especially hearty varieties, tomato and cream of mushroom. Don’t forget to check expiration dates. There is a labeled blue container beneath the coat racks for LPC pantry donations. Thank you for your help in this ministry.
CONFIRMATION KICK-OFF: Entering 9th grade? Save Sunday, August 27th from 5:00 – 7:30 p.m. for Confirmation Kick-Off event. Let’s get the Confirmation year off to a great start. We’ll share dinner and dessert (Please bring fruit to share). Plan to come even if you’re not certain confirmation is for you. Have a friend that you want to share the entire confirmation experience with? Invite them to the Kick-Off also. Please RSVP to Ed White (Aberdeen72290@gmail.com) or the church office 215-752-3200. Parents of Confirmation Students: Please plan to come at 6:30 p.m. on the 27th for a one hour parent meeting.
WOMEN’S TUESDAY EVENING BIBLE STUDY:  We will kick this year off on Tuesday, September 12th, 7:00 p.m., at the home of Kay Brown.  We will be studying “The Promised One” by Nancy Guthrie.  This study will help us discover Christ throughout the Old Testament.  The Tuesday Evening study meets on the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays of the month.  Please contact Kay Brown, if interested in attending this study.
