Appreciation for Peter and Stephanie!!
October is worldwide Pastor Appreciation Month and this Sunday, Oct.10, is Pastor Appreciation Day. God has blessed LPC with Peter Larson and Stephanie Poblenz. As a congregation, we can not thank them enough for their commitment to preaching and teaching God’s word, their tireless and caring attention to our spiritual and physical health, and their devoted leadership to all of our ministries in the church.  As Paul says in 1 Thessalonians 5:13 “ Hold them in the highest regard in love because of their work”. Please pray for Peter and Stephanie and when you get a chance tell them how much you appreciate them.

Lebanon Presbyterian Church is beginning its preparations for the annual Thanksgiving Basket project in November. The needs are even greater this year. We are collecting non-perishable food items for families who will receive Baskets. Non-perishable food items may be placed in the big box that is located in the Welcome Center on Sundays. If you would like to drop items off during the week, Monday through Friday, please bring them to the church office. We are looking for individuals or groups willing to help in the following areas: Call on families, pack baskets, deliver baskets, pick up baskets, front desk check in and leader(s). Anyone who wishes to contribute money may do so by mailing a check to the Church office, by placing it in the offering plate and or collection box and marking it “Thanksgiving Baskets.” The money will be used to buy turkeys and other perishable items. We sincerely appreciate your generous help and contributions. If you need additional information or have questions, please contact Scott or Geralyn Lucia at lpcthanksgivingbaskets@gmail.com.
