The 8:15 a.m. Adult Sunday School Class meets in the Conference Room behind the offices in the Welcome Center. Everyone is WELCOME. The class is studying the International Sunday School lessons. Currently we are studying lessons from the book of Genesis where we are exploring God’s creation and His people. In December, we’ll review the theme of Love as seen in Deuteronomy and Psalms followed by the advent of Christ’s birth. The Epistles then interpret the nature and extent of our response to God’s love.
On November 4th the 9:00 a.m. Adult Sunday School class began a six-week study of the book, Reunion: The Good News of Jesus for Seekers, Saints, and Sinners, by Bruxy Cavey.
In this book he asserts that the message of Jesus changed the world, until the world changed the message, and then Cavey asks if a truncated and fragmented version of the good news is masquerading as the full, forceful gospel of Jesus? A growing movement of truth-seekers and Jesus-lovers believe so, and they are calling for a return to the first and foundational message of Jesus. Bruxy Cavey is the teaching pastor at The Meeting House (Ontario, Canada), a church for people who are not into church.
Everyone is welcome; come join us in the Library at 9:00 a.m. If you would like a copy of the book ($12.00 payable to LPC), or if you would like more information, contact Jim or Marianne Miller.
Kids For Christ will begin on Friday October 26th. We will meet the 2nd & 4th Fridays of each month thru May 10th from 6:00 p.m.-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 after school program. All children ages 3 yrs. old thru those in the 6th grade are invited to attend. Registration forms are available in the Welcome Center in October.
Adults and youth (7th grade and older) interested in volunteering and anyone with further questions, please contact Denise Barnes by calling (302) 236-2479.

These words are being used to describe and explain the production of recently released musical CD entitled “Feed HIS Sheep.” The CD is a collection of eight Christian lyric-based songs written by LPC member Grier White.
Proceeds from all sales of “Feed HIS Sheep” will be used to help two infant nutrition centers in Kananga, where our sister church, Lungandu Parish, is located. With the CD being used as a fundraiser, at the May meeting of LPC’s session, Grier was given approval to market “Feed HIS Sheep” at LPC.
“I’m very excited about what God has decided to do through me,” states Grier, adding, “and since I had never written a song before 2011, and with the realization that I never once sat down with the intention of writing a song, I can only surmise that God decided to give me song ideas.”
In the process of recording his eight songs locally with long-time friend, sound engineer and drummer, Martin LeMaire, Grier was able to assemble excellent musician friends to bring the song ideas to fruition.
Of interest to our congregation, Pastor Buz Hughes contributes the spoken word, a recitation of Matthew 25:40, to open the song “The Least of These.” On the beautiful ballad “Remember Jesus” – a Maundy Thursday hymn – Connie Ballato is heard singing harmony, while Melanie Bradley completes the piece with her “tender touch of magic” on piano.
White has ordered 1000 copies of the CD; he has felt the call to sell enough to raise at least $5000 for the infant nutrition centers. Grier seeks prayer for the success of the CD and hopes LPC members will consider supporting the cause.
