Worshipping at the Lamington Crossroads Since 1740
Celebrating 277 Years of Ministry!
We are a family of faith wrapping our arms around God's world
and making Jesus Christ a way of life
through worship, as we praise and glorify God;
through study, as we listen for God's Word in body, mind and spirit;
through mission, as we embody God's love in service to the world;
through giving, as we express gratitude to God;
through fellowship, as we love and care for one another.

This Sunday--September 10

is LPC's Annual Kick-Off Sunday & Welcome Back BBQ

We are back to our 10:15AM Sunday Worship time, with Sunday School and childcare. Immediately after worship we will “kick-off” the new church program year with our annual Welcome Back BBQ! Join us for a morning full of worship, fellowship, food and games! Be sure to bring a friend or two and introduce them to our wonderful LPC community. Come and catch up with familiar friends you have not seen in a while, and maybe even meet a few new ones! Hope to see you all there!!


Hurricane Harvey Relief Information

Our thoughts and prayers are with all those people affected in Texas by the devastation and massive damage caused by Hurricane Harvey, and also with the people of Louisiana and western Kentucky as the path of the storm continues with its torrential rains and dangerous flooding. The needs related to the relief and recovery will be both immediate and ongoing.

In addition to praying, you can help by making an online donation to Presbyterian Disaster Assistance, one of the many organizations mobilizing relief efforts, by clicking on the link: http://pda.pcusa.org/situation/tropical-storm-harvey/

You may also put a check made out to Lamington Presbyterian Church in the collection plate during the Sunday worship services, noting “Harvey Relief” on the memo line.

September 26—Adult Bible Study

Study with Us! Join us for Adult Bible Study on Tuesday evenings from 6:30-7:30PM in the Gladish Room. We’ll be studying 1 Corinthians – Paul’s wonderful letter to the church at Corinth – a group of believers that were having some problems. Paul’s direct responses to their troubles gives us a glimpse into church life in the first century. Not surprisingly, it reflects some of the same difficulties in church life today. Thankfully, Paul’s letter reveals in exquisite, vivid detail what any church can become by God’s grace. Need more information? Please contact Jacqui at (908) 572-7013.
