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.

The congregation of The Lamington Presbyterian Church (LPC) joyfully and enthusiastically has chosen their new permanent pastor, The Rev. Dr. Carlos E. Wilton. LPC is blessed that Carl has accepted the call to be its next pastor; Carl will begin his ministry at Lamington Church on February 1, 2018. Please be sure to introduce yourself to Carl and his wife, Claire, and warmly welcome them to LPC. Carl’s first Sunday preaching will be Sunday, February 4 at 10:15AM. Hope to see you there!

Thank you to the Pastoral Nominating Committee for the care, time and thoughtfulness they put into the search process.

Thank you to The Rev. Jacqui Van Vliet who has been our Interim Pastor for the past two and half years. Jacqui brought many gifts to LPC and will be missed by many. We wish her all the best wherever she is called to serve next.

Piano Recital at Lamington Church
Sunday, February 11, 2018

On Sunday, February 11 at 3:00PM at the Lamington Presbyterian Church, Chao Tang will present a piano recital of works by Frédéric Chopin, including the Op. 48 Nocturnes and the four Ballades. The recital is being given to benefit the Abbey K. Starr Endowment for Music, devoted to support of music programming at the church for the enrichment of worship services.

Born in China, pianist Chao Tang received his early professional training in Shanghai under Professor Shi-yu Zhou. His undergraduate study was with Mr. Huan Qi at Tongji University, also in Shanghai. Upon earning his bachelor’s degree there, he came to the United States to complete a Master of Music degree at Westminster Choir College of Rider University in Princeton, New Jersey, studying with James Goldsworthy. In 2016 he founded a private music school in Shanghai. He continues his work on translating Alfred Cortot editions of the music of Frédéric Chopin into Chinese, published by Shanghai Educational Press.

The recital he is presenting at Lamington Presbyterian Church is part of his final requirements toward completing an Artist Diploma under full scholarship at Indiana University Jacobs School of Music, where he has studied with Professor Emile Naoumoff, the last student of the legendary teacher Nadia Boulanger.
