mail_1943c(2)This is the last week to participate in the It’s in the Mail campaign! Invite your friends, neighbors, and family members to share in our life together in Christ. The Evangelism Committee is providing pre-printed postcards with highlights of the fall program. All you need to do is take as many cards as you need – they’re in the Narthex – put the address on the back, add a personal note, and drop them in the mailbox at the front of the Sanctuary. The deadline is today. Don’t miss out on the opportunity to be a part of this great outreach campaign! Any additional postcards can be dropped off at the church office this week or mailed at your local post office for $.34. Thanks for reaching out!
WELCOME ED WHITE! The Session is pleased to announce the selection of Edward White as our Interim Part-time Youth Director.  Ed begins his service tomorrow and will be introduced to the congregation in worship next Sunday, August 17th. Ed is a recent graduate of Biblical Seminary with a passion for the gospel and a love for people, especially youth.  Plan to greet Ed, his wife Nicole and two-month old daughter, Rosalee Scarlett, during a reception time at next week’s Fellowship Hour.
coinsWHY IS THAT WATER JUG SITTING ON THE CHANCEL STAIRS? No, someone didn’t forget to put it away. Throughout the month of August, the Mission Committee is collecting loose change – pennies, nickels, dimes, quarters (even dollars of any denomination will be gladly accepted). The Pennies, Nickels, Dimes collection supports 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. Many are sent to the fields to work, depriving them of the one opportunity they will ever have to break out of the cycle of poverty most people live in. So dig between your couch cushions and car seats. Dare to explore the bottom of your purses. Then add that loose change to the water jug on the Chancel stairs. Your change could change a child’s life.
RED CROSS BLOOD DRIVE: LPC is hosting a Blood Drive on Thursday, September 4th from 2-7 p.m. in Fellowship Hall. Please sign-up in the Narthex for an appointment to donate blood, contact Peg Donnelly or call the church office, 215-752-3200.
MEN: Put your Pants on and come out for the very first Gideon Breakfast! Once a month, beginning Saturday, September 13th, the Men’s Ministries Committee will be hosting a time of fellowship and learning. Speakers from a variety of fields will encourage and challenge men on issues that affect every man’s daily life. This month, Dr. Tim Witmer, professor of Practical Theology at Westminster Theological Seminary, will be teaching us how we can best serve and lead in the home. Don’t miss out on this incredible opportunity! Come enjoy the food, laughs, and encouragement! From 7:30 – 9:00 a.m. For more information, see Marcos Ortega or Doug Jenkins, or call the church office.
STEPHEN MINISTRY WORSHIP: Come find out what Stephen Ministry is all about on Saturday, September 27th from 9:00 a.m.–1:00 p.m. in Fellowship Hall.

Rain or shine! 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.

moneymatters logoMONEY LIFE PERSONAL FINANCIAL STUDY: Last Spring we offered a 10-week elective where participants strengthened their personal relationship with Jesus Christ, learned financial principles taught in the Bible. Check out your September Cross Purposes for details. If there is interest, we will willingly repeat the program as a small group home Bible Study during 2014-2015. If you feel you would benefit from the Study, contact Carol Casten (215-579-8558 or carolcasten@verizon.net) or Bob Ciatto (267-226-8131 or rciatto@yahoo.com). Your inquiry will help us determine if we form a small group Bible study in the coming year or wait for a future time frame. Keep your life free from love of money, and be content with what you have, for (Jesus) has said, ‘I will never leave you nor forsake you.’ Hebrews 13:5
