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

 

TRUNK OR TREAT-ING FUN:  This event is this Saturday, October 28th, 4:00-5:30 p.m., in the LPC Parking Lot. There is no charge.  How does it work?  Dress your little ones in their costume and bring them for some Trunk or Treating fun!  There will be games set up to play and good sports manning the Trunks for Treating!  Invite friends!

We can still use a few more trunk decorators!  We have 8 cars right now.  We still need car/truck/van trunks!   Also any last minute candy donations can be placed in the bin in Heritage Hall.

FAITH ACTS HAS RETURNED: Every Thursday, 5:15-6:00 p.m. in Fellowship Hall, families can share great food and fellowship for a nominal fee. Stay for the Faith Acts programs 6:15-7:45 p.m.: Classes and choirs for children beginning at age 3 (nursery for those younger) plus Adult Education Classes. Three adult electives are offered:

  • Kyle Idleman’s study, Not a Fan, led by Lynn Likens in the Library
  • Ron Blue’s study, God Owns It All, a six-week study focusing on stewardship, led by Carol Casten in Room 6
  • Through Galatians with Martin Luther led by Bill Teague in the Chapel

STEWARDSHIP MOMENT: How we live affects how we give. “In God Owns it All,” Ron Blue defines materialism. “Materialism isn’t about having a lot and wanting more. Instead,

it’s defined by worshiping what you have and what you want. It’s a belief that having more things can bring contentment and joy. It’s a sickness that’s present in all corners of the worlds, and it’s just as prevalent among the poor as among the rich. We all struggle with materialism in one form or another, and it’s a direct violation of a right belief in who God is and what He has done for us.”

Hebrews 13:5: “Your life should be free from the love of money. Be satisfied with what you have, for He Himself has said, I will never leave you or forsake you.” 

WOMEN’S TUESDAY EVENING BIBLE STUDY: 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. Our next meeting is October 24th at 7:00 p.m. at the home of Carolyn Booz. Please contact Kay Brown at kay.lpc@verizon.net or 215-752-3200 if interested in attending this study. 
FELLOWSHIP EVENTS: Dates for all 2017/2018 fellowship events are available now. Pick up a schedule of events on bright green paper from the rack in the Narthex. Don’t miss Trunk or Treat on October 28th. Mark your calendar for our next big event – November 12th Potluck Dinner at 5:30 p.m.
USHERS NEEDED:  Are you looking for a way to serve at LPC?  How about considering being part of the Usher Team?  We are looking for a few extra team members that could dedicate to at least one Sunday a month at the 9:45 a.m. service.  Please contact Dylan Lynn or Doug Jenkins for info.
