MEETING OF THE CONGREGATION:
The meeting of the congregation that was scheduled for March 15, following the 10:00 a.m. worship service has been postponed and will be rescheduled at a later date.
The purpose of this short meeting will be to suspend the Nominating Committee provision of our church by-laws and act upon a recommendation from the Session regarding a candidate to be elected as elder to fill an unexpired term on the Session. Elder Don Reimold has agreed to have his name put into nomination. Any other nominations may be taken from the floor providing the candidate agrees in advance to having his or her name placed into nomination.
FROM THE PASTOR SEARCH COMMITTEE:
Throughout December and early January, the bulk of the PSC’s work has focused on completion of the Church Information Form (CIF). Writing the CIF involves a time of self-study and evaluation of LPC’s current ministry and goals. This process requires honesty, effort, and a commitment to open communication. In its finished form, the CIF should present an accurate picture of the congregation’s history, challenges, and goals. The hope is that the CIF will help facilitate the search process, assist LPC in focusing on future directions, and give prospective pastors a sense of the nature and uniqueness of our congregation. The committee hopes to complete the CIF soon and then forward it to the Session for review. Our next order of business will be completion of the job description for the new Pastor position.
We are still awaiting a meeting with the Ministerial Committee of the EPC’s Presbytery of the East. This committee recently had a change of personnel and then did not meet over the holidays. We are hoping to confirm a meeting soon.
HELP US KEEP THE CUPBOARD FULL:
At this time our Food Pantry will stay OPEN. Hours are Wednesday and Thursday from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon.
The Deacons thank you for the donations of many of the needed items for the LPC food pantry. We are low on Chef Boyardee ravioli and Spaghettio’s, ramen, Spam, tuna, jelly, cereal, breakfast bars, and kidney beans. A labeled container for donations is beneath the coat racks in Heritage Hall.
There are a number of items that are in frequent demand and seem to fly off the shelves. These items include cereal, macaroni and cheese, spaghetti, Ensure, Capri Sun (individual juice containers), canned kidney beans, canned meats including Spam, chicken, and tuna, as well as fruit cups, breakfast bars, and individual snack items like cheese crackers or Goldfish crackers. Occasionally, donations come in that are past the expiration date. In those cases, the Bucks County Housing Group will accept some “recently” expired items; however, it is helpful to check expiration dates before donating.
CARING FOR FRIENDS:
Caring for Friends has reached out to us in anticipation of meal shortages. At the moment our freezer is almost empty. If you would like to donate some prepared meals, please stop by the church office to pick up containers and/or drop off meals to be put in the CFF freezer in the LPC basement. Please call the office ahead of time as hours are uncertain.
“… 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.
