We believe in one holy catholic and apostolic Church. – The Nicene Creed
The notes of the true Kirk, therefore, we believe, confess, and avow to be: first, the true preaching of the Word of God, in which God has revealed himself to us, as the writings of the prophets and apostles declare; secondly, the right administration of the sacraments of Christ Jesus, with which must be associated the Word and promise of God to seal and confirm them in our hearts; and lastly, ecclesiastical discipline uprightly ministered, as God’s Word prescribes, whereby vice is repressed and virtue nourished. Then wherever these notes are seen and continue for any time, be the number complete or not, there, beyond any doubt, is the true Kirk of Christ, who, according to his promise, is in its midst. – The Scots Confession
Our 2019-2020 Faith Acts Adult Experience will be an exploration of what it means to be the church using Biblical, confessional, and missional sources to understand more about the rich meaning of the church in God’s plan for human history and to apply that understanding to our life together at LPC and in the world of the 21st Century.
Each chapel session will begin with a short time of worship including the reading of a Psalm, singing of songs or spiritual songs, and then a presentation on a particular “Being the Church” topic by one of the members of our teaching team. Typically, we will end our time with breakout group discussion on the topic presented.
Our leaders will include Dr. Gary Schnittjer, Dr. Brian Luther, Tyler Stanhope, Casey Huckel, and Bill Teague

In the Book of Acts, Jesus instructs his disciples (based out of Jerusalem) to be his "witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.” A common way to interpret this passage is that Christians are to become a witness in the local community, regionally, and to the ends of the Earth. The Youth Mission Week will focus on the Jerusalem, or home, aspect of this command. A church in Oneonta, NY is graciously hosting our group and helping us to identify meaningful service projects in the area to accompany our commitment to provide training in building gospel-focused relationships and building a deeper personal relationship with Christ.
In addition to service and training, our group will also enjoy a great time of team building through a kayaking trip, hiking, and games (both in the gym and of course board games).
Purpose of Youth Mission Week, 2019:
- To promote a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ and equip students to more effectively and boldly share their faith with their family and friends.
- Grow in knowledge and depth of relationship with Christ.
- Learn to create intentional relationships with people you are in regular contact with that allow for the gospel to be shared.
- Build community through serving others in partnership with a local church, attending team building activities, and through group bible study and prayer time.
- Incorporate the truth of the scriptures into everyday life through reflecting on the Word of God, spending time in prayer both corporately and individually, and through personal journaling.
- This trip is being planned for June 24th – 29th.
- Fundraisers are scheduled; Pound Auction (May 2), Car Washes (April 13, May 11, June 8)
- Cost: $75 Family Contribution & $75 fundraising
