There are a variety of ways to participate in the life of the church and make meaningful connections with others in the process.
It all depends on what interests you, what you are curious about and what your schedule allows. The Deacons Ministry is vital in assisting with Pastoral care and programming activities. You can join the book club and engage in animated discussions of themes over the course of several months. Or, study the Bible with a group of equally curious participants. LGBTQIA+ members, friends, and allies gather regularly in support of each other.
The Deacons’ Ministry provides support for the congregation in many ways. Their work includes, among other things, Sunday Fellowship Hour, Prayer Team, Deacons’ Fund, Communion Preparation, Congregation Member Care, Fair Trade Coffee Sales, Easter Cake Sale, Emergency Care, Health Fair, Maundy Thursday Meal, and Agape Service Hand Washing.
The LAPC men’s ministry endeavors to serve the church and the community at large by creating opportunities for filling the gap where needs are identified to meet the needs of the most vulnerable in our community. We will do this by liaising with churches and community organizations with similar goals. Targeted areas include housing, health, education, safety, seniors and youth.
The Church continues to find ways for us to connect, if only virtually, through a monthly book discussion. This group focuses on one book over the course of several months, getting together at 7:00pm on the last Tuesday of every month to pour through a selected section of the book.
