      Book Discussion

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.

Trouble I’ve Seen: Changing the Way the Church Views Racism - Drew G.I Hart

Facing Racism: A Vision of the Intercultural Community Antiracism Study Guide from the Presbyterian Mission Agency

     LCPC humbly asks about the realities of race and reconciliation in our neighborhoods and community.  Thoughtful time spent reading        books, discussion and worship invites us to challenge how our claimed faith lives in the world.  As we continue to allow the living God      to shape the course of our lives, our commitment is to:
 
  • Practice solidarity in the struggle 
  • See the world from a new perspective
  • Name unfounded fear
  • Tell the story, be soaked in scripture:

     Faith Leader

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. 

 

     Storytelling

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.
