fall Mission conference Weekend - november 5 to november 7
God's Work and Our Work in the Harvest - Matthew 9: 36-38
For the past several years, LPC has set apart the first weekend in November to allow the congregation to gain a better understanding of what God is doing around the world and in our community through the work of specific missionaries and ministries that our congregation supports. After the “pause” in 2020, we are very blessed to be able to celebrate it again this year.
Keynote Speaker Reverend Emery Brown will lead a series of messages during the weekend that will help us stay focused on the overall topic of God at work throughout the whole world. The congregation will also be able to browse through display tables and converse with the missionaries, along with refreshing times of worship through music and prayer.
