Where Can I Serve?

Jesus told us, his disciples, to make disciples of all nations. One of the most important values of Lakeside Community Presbyterian Church (LCPC)  is our mission to the world. It begins in our own community, and spreads overseas to every nation. LCPC members are involved in a variety of ministries from things as simple as quilt making, to preparing the church bulletins.


Mission Outreach

LCPC is thrilled to be part of the spread of God’s kingdom around the world. We are active in sending missionaries and supporting these missionaries with our money and with our prayers. We support multiple missionaries around the world, from the  San Diego to Florida, Africa,  Mexico, and Malaysia.  We encourage all of our people to respond to God’s call for laborers, whether it means they move to a foreign country, or minister in our own community.


Music

God-honoring worship is something we strive for at LCPC.  We have an active and vibrant music program.  Some play  instruments. Some are vocalists. Others are involved in the choir. These volunteers are an important part of the ministry of LCPC, using their talents and gifts to glorify God.


Ushers & Fellowship Time

The usher team at LCPC fills an important role. They are involved in directing attendees to their seats, ensuring the safety of the building during services, helping visitors, providing direction, unlocking doors, locking doors, and generally ensuring that the service can proceed problem-free. The usher team is a servant-hearted group of men and women whose ministry is integral to church life.  Fellowship Time volunteers serve complimentary refreshments on the patio (coffee, tea, lemonade and occasionally dessert) after Worship service and before Sunday school.

 

Media & Technology

Using media to spread the gospel is in its infancy stage at LCPC. In an age of widespread technology, we have a strong desire to implement these tools as best as possible for kingdom purposes. All of our weekly sermons are uploaded to our website in audio format and in the future we plan to add video formats.

 

Marriage Counseling

Marriages can be difficult to maintain. Misunderstanding, confusion, resentment, and anger can flare up in any marriage. Pastor Dr. Bob Mentze is available for listening, understanding, helping, and encouraging struggling couples has, by God’s grace, saved marriages, and repaired relationships. Couples can find fresh hope and new joy in a warm and fulfilling relationship with their spouse.


Prayer Warriors

Prayer cannot be overestimated. Prayer moves the hand of God. LCPC is a body of believers dependent upon prayer, and committed to God’s sovereignty. Each Sunday, prior to the morning service, everyone is encouraged to meet in the Pastor’s office at 9:10 for prayer time.  We also have a Prayer Chain, daytime, nighttime and via email. This team of volunteer prayer warriors  pray for special requests, pray for the pastor, missionary needs, our country, and  for the ministry of the Word.


Children’s Kaleidoscope

In order to give our children the best Bible teaching possible, LCPC holds a children’s church service in conjunction with the main service. This special time gives kids a greater opportunity for interaction and learning in a context and manner that may be better suited to their age and learning styles. Our friendly children’s church volunteers have an endless stream of creativity–ranging from puppet shows, to games, to object lessons and crafts.
