Pastor’s Note 07/28/22


Picture a room full of tables. There is a buffet table at one end full of foods ready to be served. Throughout the room, dinner tables are in place with settings of plastic utensils, a cup for a cool drink, a center piece in the middle and enough room to gather in comfort.

The room is buzzing with all different kinds of people. Kids are running around playing with each other, checking out the prizes that they might win during game time. There is talking and laughing. Some are meeting new friends, others are connecting with people that they have gotten to know over time.


Some are here to get a hot-meal, others are here to serve and to connect with the guests that are new to the room. Throughout the room you see people conversing and serving one another. It feels like a family gathering of sorts.


This is a snap-shot of what is happening at “Eat and Greet” here at LCPC on the last Sunday of the month. In a unique, non-threatening way, people are invited to come, enjoy a meal, have good conversation and catch a glimpse of what God’s church is like. It is a diverse, multi-dimensional gathering of people who are learning to be disciples of Jesus. This may be a new kind of church. It may be a little bit of God’s Kingdom on earth, just as it is in heaven.


God is on a mission to grow His church! Won’t you join us in building it, one relationship at a time.


It would be great to see you this Sunday at our Worship Service and at Eat and Greet!

Pastor’s Note 07/21/22

“Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God.

 Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God.”

1 John 4:7


Better Together.


We are a better church connected to one another. Being connected is more than just saying “hi” to someone on a Sunday morning. It is studying the Scriptures together. It is praying for one another. It is being connected to other brothers and sisters at church but also outside of church. It is sharing life together and being a church family.


We are better when we do life together in Christ.


One of the ways that we can grow in this connectedness is by studying the scriptures with each other. This Sunday we have an opportunity to do that in a class with Rev. John Moser at 11am. John is the Interim Executive Presbyter for Presbytery of San Diego. Before becoming the Interim Presbyter, John was the pastor at Mt. Soledad Presbyterian Church in La Jolla for 14 years. Come and learn about Christ in the Scriptures but more importantly, come and be with others as we learn together what it means to be a disciple of Christ.


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