Kids for Christ began on Friday, October 27th. We meet on the 2nd and 4th Fridays of each month through May 11th from 6:00-8:30 p.m. The schedule will change slightly in November and December due to holidays. We provide dinner for the children and adult/youth volunteers.
Kids for Christ is like a mini-vacation Bible school offering Bible stories, crafts, games, snacks and music. It is also considered an outreach program as we have many children attending from our surrounding community and afterschool program. All children ages three years old through those in the sixth grade are invited to attend.
Registration forms are available in the Welcome Center. Please contact Denise Barnes at 945-4170 if you have any questions.
Our Mission Committee has designated LPC’s Christmas offering to be
split between a local and an international group. They are the Immanuel
Shelter located in Rehoboth and the SEPRES program under the Kananga
Presbytery in Congo. Both missions reach out to the community and have
far reaching consequences in bettering the less fortunate.
The Immanuel Shelter is a homeless shelter that is open from November
thru April, providing a warm meal and a safe place to sleep overnight.
Clients must leave during the day. It is located near the Community
Resource Center where there are people who assist those in need of
ongoing assistance. The shelter stays open mostly on money that is
donated by churches and individuals. This money goes to providing
electricity, food, security and the necessities needed to run this refuge for
those who find themselves homeless.
SEPRES basically stands for Service to Presbyterians. It seeks to improve
the substandard living conditions of CPC members (Congo Presbyterian
Community), by supporting and advising them in community
development activities, thus assisting people so they can support
themselves via vocational training. There have been classes previously
offered in auto mechanics, carpentry, masonry and sewing. The funds
donated assist with salaries of teachers, supplies, and a set up kit at the
completion of the training. LPC has already supported this group through
Irene Witoski’s direction and a warehouse building has already been built
to house supplies securely. In addition, they have an office for overseeing
the programs and some from LPC have even been present for a graduation
of the carpenters trained in the program.
We ask that we who are blessed here in this country from LPC give from
their heart and honor the true meaning of Christmas and bring glory to
GOD and His Son.
