"Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were making an appeal through us; we beg you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God.  He made Him who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.  And working together with Him, we also urge you not to receive the grace of God in vain--for He says, "AT THE ACCEPTABLE TIME I LISTENED TO YOU, AND ON THE DAY OF SALVATION I HELPED YOU." Behold, now is "THE ACCEPTABLE TIME," behold, now is "THE DAY OF SALVATION"  

2 Corinthians 5:20 - 6:2

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. 

From Friday evening till Sunday afternoon, a series of events will allow us to learn, fellowship and worship God together.

Reverend Douglas Sukhia will be the keynote speaker. He will lead a series of messages during the weekend that will help us stay focused in the overall topic of God at work throughout the whole world.

The congregation will also be able to browse through display tables and conversing with the missionaries. There will also be refreshing times of worship through music and prayer.

We will enjoy refreshments with our missionaries during our Friday evening reception. 

There will be a continental breakfast on Saturday morning right before the morning sessions.

Our traditional harvest dinner will be served on Saturday evening. The entire congregation is invited to this free meal. (Please, sign up in the sheets that will be provided.)

The Sunday service, adult education class, as well as Sunday school will include the presence of missionaries as well.

We will close the weekend with our traditional soup lunch after the Sunday service (It´s been a long time since we had one too!)

This year we will be blessed with the presence of Mark and Lori Berry, church planters among Spanish speakers in Alabama. Bob and Colleen Ludeking, ministering to international students through InterFACE Ministries, Rasheed Akhtar, who serves with ISI, Urban Christian Ministries, PATH, CompassCare, and East Africa Initiative among others.

Technology will help us connect with missionaries on the field who cannot be present this year. 

The Missions Committee hopes that many of you will participate in the Conference, and that God’s name will be glorified in our congregation that weekend. 

See you there!

A full schedule of events for this weekend will be available soon.
