IT’S IN THE mail_1943cMAIL: Another great fall is coming to LPC with programs and activities that tell the good news of the Gospel!  We all have friends, neighbors and family members waiting to be invited into the love of God and the joy of our life together. Beginning Sunday, August 2nd, the Evangelism Committee is once again offering an easy and fun way to invite others to share LPC! We’re providing pre-printed postcards with highlights of the fall program. All you need to do is to take as many cards as you need – they’ll be in the Narthex and all the information racks – address them to your friends, add a personal note, and drop them in the mailbox on the Chancel steps.  Have your cards in the mailbox by August 30th and we’ll add the postage and put them in the mail!
MEN! End the summer with a relaxing day of Bocce Ball and fellowship on Saturday, August 15th from 2:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m. Food and beverages will be provided! Contact Doug Jenkins at 215-439-8260 and drjinx@verizon.net or Marcos Ortega at 215-752-3200 and marcos.lpc@verizon.net for more details and to let us know you’re coming.
PENpennies, nickels and dimesNIES, NICKELS, DIMES: Use that loose change in your pocket to change a life.   In August the Mission Committee will be collecting loose change for the Promised Land Ministries School Sponsorship Program in the Lake Atitlan region of Guatemala. Without sponsorship these elementary school age children are unable to attend school and sent to the fields to work and thus are deprived of the one opportunity they will ever have to break out of the cycle of poverty most people live in. Your change can change a life.
ANNUAL WORK DAY AT HPCA:   Here is a great opportunity for nearby, hands-on mission involvement at Hunting Park Christian Academy, our mission partner of north Philadelphia.  HPCA has scheduled a work day for Saturday, August 22nd and has asked for our help. We will be at HPCA from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. and will be doing general cleaning, painting, small maintenance jobs, and classroom furniture assembly. If you would like to be a part of this year’s LPC team at HPCA, please contact Lee Thomas at 215-357-5323 or leet150@live.com. HPCA needs your help – let your light shine!
 PANTRY ITEMS OF THE MONTH – PASTA AND SAUCE: Our “Items of the Month” are pasta and spaghetti sauce (any types). The deacons thank you for helping us keep the LPC Pantry stocked. Throughout the summer the community has continued to have a steady need of our food bank. Please don’t forget to check expiration dates.  Donations may be placed in the blue labeled tub beneath the coat racks. Thank you for your help in this ministry.
8:01david_3152c – A MAN AFTER GOD’S OWN HEART:  Our Summer Sundays Bible Study begins next Sunday!  This year’s 8:01 class will study the life of David, the sweet psalmist of Israel, the shepherd king, the man after God’s own heart. Meet at 8:01 a.m. each Sunday in the Chapel and finish in time for 9:15 a.m. or 11:00 a.m. worship.  Plan on joining us!
