There are many Ministries to participate in at LAPC.
From our beginnings during the Civil War, when we advocated for the abolition of slavery and for women’s rights, LAPC has been at the forefront of the “Social Gospel” movement in American Protestantism, and that work continues with the Social Justice Committee. There are interactive programs for Children and Youth, as well as robust opportunities for Adults. And through it all, the power of prayer is undeniable and celebrated by the Prayer Team.
CHILDREN & YOUTH PROGRAMS
The LAPC Christian Education ministry aims not only to continue connecting with our young people, but also to enhance the LAPC experience for everyone interested by offering targeted learning opportunities and various programs in an inviting and engaging manner.
Since its founding as an abolitionist church, LAPC has sought ways to serve the larger community and deliver on its commitment as a Matthew 25 Church to “act boldly and compassionately to serve people who are hungry, oppressed, imprisoned or poor” (Presbyterian General Assembly, 2018; Matthew 25:31–46).
