HELP US KEEP THE CUPBOARD FULL:
The Deacons thank you for the donations of many of the needed items for the LPC food pantry. We are still low on Spam, canned tuna and chicken, spaghetti sauce, macaroni and cheese, canned fruit, applesauce, Capri Sun juices, cereal, strawberry jelly, peanut butter, and individual snack items such as goldfish, cheese or peanut butter crackers, pretzels, etc. A labeled container for donations is beneath the coat racks in Heritage Hall. Please check expiration dates.
BEYOND THE EYEROLL:
Christian Parenting in a Challenging World. Anxiety, Depression, drug use, and more; helping teenagers to navigate these difficult topics is no easy task. Beyond the Eye Roll provides a safe place for parents to learn about, discuss, and support one another through the challenges of parenting teens. On Thursday, November 7th from 6:15 - 8:00pm, join us at LPC (Rm 6) as we face these challenges head-on and support one another through the high calling of Christian parenting. This is a parent-exclusive event. Hope to see you there!
AID FOR FRIENDS:
LPC regularly provides meals to Aid For Friends with your help. Package up those left-overs or prepare extra servings of your favorite dishes to create an Aid For Friends meal. Soup is also appreciated. Plan ahead today and pick up extra containers from the cabinet in Heritage Hall, follow the instructions and freeze it. Deliver the frozen meals to the AFF freezer in the LPC basement behind the kitchen.
CRAFT & CHAT:
Women’s Ministry’s Craft & Chat returns on Saturday, November 9th at 1:00 – 3:00 p.m. meeting in Rooms D & E. Do you have a favorite craft that you love but never seem to find time or wish you had some company while you craft? The purpose of this get-together is to provide a space for you to craft and enjoy some fellowship. Come join your fellow crafters. Maybe you will be inspired to finish that project that has been sitting for years or be introduced to something new. Like to knit or crochet? Ties That Bind creates baby hats and blankets for newborns and donates them to Choice One. The group meets with Craft & Chat on November 9th.
Men, don’t miss the Gideon’s Breakfast on Saturday morning, November 9th, beginning at 7:30 a.m. in Fellowship Hall. Our speaker for the morning will be Don Reimold. The food and fellowship will be great.
FALL CLEAN-UP DAY:
This year’s fall clean-up day will be held Saturday, November 23 – not November 16 as previously announced. Trustees and all members and friends of LPC are invited to bring a rake and other yard work tools as we take care of fall leaves and prepare our building and grounds for the winter. Please join us!
PROMISES IN THE DARK:
Kibuye Hope team member Eric McLaughlin has written an amazing book about Christian faith in difficult times with his experiences in Burundi and Kenya as a backdrop. Copies are available for $10 cash – no change made and no checks – while supplies last. See Pastor Bill.
COMING SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 23:
For the LPC family young and old! Join us for a wagon ride through the lights and Shady Brook Farm. We’ll meet at Shady Brook at 6:30 p.m. and enjoy the lights and a bonfire with s’mores. The cost is just $5 per person. Ticket sales begin this coming Thursday at Faith Acts and will continue at Faith Acts and Sunday morning through November 17.
“… Pray for one another.” James 5:16. One of the ways that we pray for one another is through the LPC Prayer Chain. Should you wish to bring a prayer joy or concern to others who will pray with and for you, please complete one of the blue prayer cards in the pew rack (or on the back table in the Chapel) and drop it in the offering plate. Or send your requests to email@example.com.
