Did you know that Lewes Presbyterian Church has been a congregation since 1692? On the weekend of October 21-22, we will be celebrating our 325th birthday with a special look at our rich heritage through song, special services, skits and much more.
Saturday, October 21 at 2:00 p.m. in the Sanctuary we are having a
COMMUNITY SERVICE “A MUSICAL CELEBRATION OF 325 YEARS OF WORSHIP”
followed by light refreshments in the Welcome Center
Sunday, October 22 at 11:00 a.m. we are having a
COMBINED WORSHIP SERVICE
(Only one service that day. There will be NO CHILDREN'S SUNDAY SCHOOL that day. Nursery will be open but not staffed.)
Followed by celebratory lunch and a program filled with music and fun!
The LPC soup ministry started the season on Tuesday, October 3. We will be serving soup and salad every Tuesday (weather permitting) through April, 2018. The hours are from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. We are looking forward to working with all the dedicated volunteers and invite anyone who would like to have a good time, work hard and feel the joy of serving others to please contact Gerry Brown at 302-335-5211 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Kids for Christ will begin on Friday, October 27th. We will meet 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 will be available in the Welcome Center in October. Please contact Denise Barnes at 945-4170 if you have any
This year Samaritans Purse collected nearly 11.5 million shoeboxes--more than ever before. The need is greater than ever before. Just
think, we at LPC have the opportunity to impact a child with the Good News of Jesus Christ through packing a shoebox filled with gifts.
Many of these children have never in their lives received a gift. Some
have never heard the Good News of the Savior who loves them and
offers eternal life.
Since 2010, 11 million children have enrolled in the 12-lesson follow up discipleship program called “The Greatest Journey” where they learn to follow Christ and share him with others.
Our Operation Christmas Child Campaign will begin on Sunday,
October 29 and end on Sunday, November 12, 2017. So please begin
to collect items for your boxes now. Be aware that candy and toothpaste are no longer accepted in boxes, plus the $9.00 donation that accompanies each box is critical to cover shipping and product costs.
Think of this project as another opportunity “to make disciples.” For
more information contact Kathy Westgate or Sylvia Gilmore.
What are the core beliefs of LPC? How do we organize the life of our congregation? What opportunities for ministry do we offer? How can I become a Covenant Partner of LPC? These and other questions will be addressed at a series of two classes on Sunday afternoons on November 5th and November 12th at 2 p.m. in the church library. You are invited to attend these sessions if you are interested in joining LPC, or if you just want some information about LPC's beliefs, organization, or ministries.
If you plan to attend or if you want additional information, please call the church office at 302-645-5345 or email us at email@example.com.
