What is a Pound Auction? The work camp participants will bring items, each weighing about one-pound that are carefully wrapped so that no one can tell what is inside. Then the bidding will begin on the mysterious packages to see what exactly these items are! All are invited. Proceeds will benefit the June Work Camp trip.
FATHER-DAUGHTER / GRANDFATHER-GRANDDAUGHTER DANCE!!  On Saturday, May 6th, LPC hosts its first ever! This is for girls who are Busy-Bee’s (age 3-4) through 5th grade and their dads or grandpas. We are planning lots of fun including a photo booth, a DJ spinning fun Christian tunes, a candy “bar”, chicken nuggets and fries, and games thrown in as well. Tickets at $5 per person, with a $15 max per family, may be purchased following the 8:30 a.m. worship service in Room 3 and the 9:45 a.m. worship service in Fellowship Hall.  Tickets must be purchased in advance. For more information and questions, please text or call Kay Brown at 215-584-2293, or e-mail at kay.lpc@verizon.net.
WORK DAY: The Trustees have organized a Spring Work Day on Saturday, May 6th. The day begins at 8:00 a.m. and ends at 1:00 p.m. Please consider donating your time. Come when you can for as long as you can and leave when you must. HOWEVER the roads could be blocked from 8:00  –  9:00 a.m. for the Run for Woods 5K, so try to get here early. Raindate is May 13th. There is much to be done with both indoor and outdoor tasks to be accomplished. Working side by side provides great fellowship and an opportunity to build new relationships. Let’s be good stewards of this beautiful facility with which God has blessed us.
ANNUAL SPRING DINNER:  Ladies, enjoy a night out at the LPC Women’s Spring covered-dish dinner on Thursday, May 11th, beginning at 6:00 p.m. in Fellowship Hall. Our theme is Seeds of Kindness, sharing an evening of fun, fellowship and inspiration. Bring a favorite dish. Why not extend the invitation to a favorite friend or relative? Please sign up in Heritage Hall and indicate if childcare is needed. (Please feed your children at home first; childcare does not include dinner.) We hope to see you there!
  BAKE SALE WITHOUT THE FUSS: Support the work of the Women’s Ministry Team during the month of May with the annual Bakeless Bake Sale. Estimate the cost of baking (or buying) a bake sale item and contribute that amount, placing it in a Bakeless Bake Sale envelope, and dropping it in the “oven” outside the Chapel or in Fellowship Hall, or the mailbox by the office door.

GET READY FOR VBS 2017!!!  It may only be April, but we have been “gearing up” for this amazing week since January! This year VBS is scheduled for July 17th to 21stWe are doing Group Publishing’s “Maker Fun Factory”, and we can’t wait to fill our church with boys and girls who will spend the week becoming hands-on inventors, and discovering how they are lovingly crafted by God. We will sing and have fun learning about God – our creator!

Gear up your kids (or grandkids, nieces, nephews and friends) to enjoy a week filled with fun and learning about God – our Creator, through Bible stories, music, games, crafts, and snacks!  Registration forms are available on the turnstile in the Narthex, as well as on the LPC webpage, following this link:  http://www.langhornepres.org/children/vbs-info/.  We reached our goal of 120 boys and girls last year—let’s do that again!
