Greetings and Happy New Year!

 

Are you a New Year's Resolution-kind of person? Lots of people take the new year as an opportunity to resolve to get healthier, build better habits, start something new, grow in some important way.


Perhaps this year our New Year's Resolution might be to grow in faith. At LCPC, we know that having a place to BELONG and a way to SERVE helps us GROW in faith. Consider volunteering with one of our Outreach partners. Or perhaps pick a partner and pray for them this month and ask God to bless them through you. Or maybe this is the year that you’ll go on an LCPC Mission Trip (to Latvia).


Save the Date!

If you are interested in exploring the possibility of participating in the intergenerational mission trip to Latvia (June 17-27, 2023) with our global outreach partners, Nora & Igors Raumanis and the International Fellowship of Evangelical Students, we will have our next informational meeting on Sunday, January 8 after the second service. Join us for lunch (12-12:30pm) and we'll discuss the mission trip options beginning at 12:30pm! Please reply to this email if you are interested in attending and to RSVP for lunch by Wednesday, 1/4/23.
