Adults participating in Faith Formation meet at 10:00 a.m. for compelling study, discussion, and commentary that allows individuals to examine more of who we are in Christ. Readings and study follow the Revised Common Lectionary.
Seeking new and deeper knowledge of God’s presence and sharing the experience is the power of a book group. An informal book group met throughout the year on Wednesday evenings to discuss a variety of titles. Content and discussion influenced worship, church vision and our very identity, such is the power of a book.

Faith Leader is a small group process that will raise up new leaders in our congregation. Based on biblical models of leadership and reclaiming spritual practices from the Christian tradition, Faith Leader trains participants in discernment, both of their own call to ministry and the spiritual life of their congregation. The full program encompasses 26 weekly sessions, along with two weekend long retreats. Now in its second season, a new group will be invited to form in the summer of 2017 to begin work in the fall.
Our intent is to utilize technology (video, broadcast streaming, internet and blogging) to deeply tend relationships and tell our stories. These stories we tell animate us; sharing our stories is a unique outreach ministry for LCPC. When we share stories community happens, we connect on a personal level and see ourselves in the narrative and quietly realize God is with us.
