Pastor’s Note 08/17/2023

If you attend church this Sunday, I am hoping that you will experience better sound coming from our audio system. This past week, installation took place of some new speakers, a new audio board and an amplifier. This new equipment should also enhance the audio on our streaming system so if you are unable to attend a worship service, this experience should be improved. We also installed a new audio-enhancement system that will be helpful for those that attend our services that have a hard time hearing. These devices will help you to hear things more clearly. Special thanks go out to the Sound Image team, Bill Hultman and the LCPC sound team of Evan Hilley, Colin Hagan, and Mark Vettel. They still have more to learn about the new system and how it will best work in our setting but we have taken a great step in making improvements by the installation of the new audio equipment.


We also are grateful to everyone who has helped to improve our Community Garden on our church property (especially Edgar and Jessica Fernandez and Joe Conard). The rains from last season caused a lot of growth of the weeds on that portion of our property which became a hazard for those driving at Lakeside Gardens. It took a big effort to clear and remove the weeds and debris.


This is all part of the long on-going process of improving our church campus. Now we don’t want to improve things just to improve things, but we spend precious time and financial resources to help us to better communicate the message of Jesus. As we take steps to fix and update our buildings it is all done to be good stewards of what God has given us so that we can play a role in the task of expanding His kingdom here in Lakeside, East County and around the world.


Have a great rest of the week and I hope to see you on Sunday.

Pastor’s Note 08/03/2023

This week we start a new sermon series, “Biblical Nuggets” where we will be looking at phrases from the Bible that have become a part of our own English cliches and idioms. There are many that are scattered throughout the Scriptures and each has meanings that go deeper than we usually mean. This week we look at the story of Cain and Abel in Genesis 4 as Cain responds to God’s question with a question, “Am I my brother’s keeper?”


So I hope that you can join us in person or online as we discover some wisdom from God in His Word.


Have a great rest of the week.
