  • Heart-to-Heart

    Heart-to-Heart is a Christian women’s ministry within Lewes Presbyterian Church, linking members together as friends in a year-long partnership. Additional members are solicited yearly and new partner assignments are made. This ministry is vital both spiritually and socially within LPC as it links together both older and younger women in Christian friendship across the three different LPC worship times.

    Members are encouraged to pray for each other, call one another and get together as often as possible, just as good friends do together as their friendships unfold. Partners have opportunities to offer spiritual enrichment and encouragement in each other’s lives as partners seek to bless one another in a myriad of ways and are blessed in return.

    • Social partner gatherings are offered seasonally to create a wider opportunity for developing Christian friendships among partners within the church, including:  
    • Summer Salad/Dessert Luncheon
    • Autumn Caramel Apple Making Christmas Progressive Dinner and Yankee Swap
    • Winter Soup and Cinema Night  
    • Spring Shoebox Luncheon
    • New Members Formal Tea at the Buttery in Lewes in June

    If you are interested in finding more information about Heart-to-Heart or would like to join, please contact Jill Landon, 302.644.0493 or email her at williamlandon@comcast.net. Additional information is available by contacting the LPC church office:

Kelly Class

The Kelly Class of LPC is made up of women who meet together on the 2nd Monday of each month for lunch at local restaurants and a business meeting. The Kelly Class has two yearly fundraisers: a three- day rummage sale in May or June and a one-day Christmas bazaar on the first Saturday in December. These two events are very successful because of the help of many people who donate items to sell, others who help set up and/or come each day to help with manning tables and oversee the sale items during these events. The funds raised by the Kelly Class are distributed to a variety of local needs including the Immanuel Shelter for the homeless, the Community Resource Center, New Coverdale Outreach Ministries in Coverdale Crossroads, hats, gloves, scarves and coats distributed at the Thanksgiving Community dinner, and funding for various projects within LPC. Kelly Class welcomes new members. If you are interested in more information or would like to join this group, please contact Lyn Traxler, President or Brenda Keith, Vice-President at the church office.
