Pastor’s Note 04/07/22

This Sunday is Palm Sunday and the beginning of Holy Week.


The most important week of the Christian calendar starts on Sunday and we have something taking place every day next week.


  • Monday thru Friday at noon, we will have a short communion service. Friday’s service will also include a multi-media presentation of the Stations of the Cross.
  • On Thursday, we will have a 6pm Maundy Thursday Service with communion.
  • On Good Friday, at 6pm we have a service remembering Christ’s sacrifice for our sins by dying on a cross. This can be an emotionally packed service as we listen and see nails be driven into a cross.
  • On Easter Sunday, we will have a celebratory service remembering Christ’s resurrection, with lots of great music and excitement. Of course we will have some goodies to eat after the service to enjoy.


 Who will you invite to these services and to Easter this year?


Holy Week and Easter Sunday are the perfect times to share about the great love that God has for us and it is the perfect time to invite others to hear about God’s love story and His desire to see the world know about His love.


So, is there a family member, a friend, a co-worker that might be open to coming with you to Easter services at LCPC? Let me encourage you pray about who you might invite and may we make this Easter time where God’s love shines through as we remember the resurrection of His son Jesus Christ.


I am praying for our week together and I hope to see you.


Pastor’s Note 04/01/22

Last weekend my family and I had a wonderful time celebrating with family and friends our son Aaron’s marriage to Kara Kono in Carlsbad, CA. Karyn and I are truly blessed to now have three additions to our family and God has been good through these busy 8 months of 3 marriage celebrations.


I need to say “thank you” to Garry Smith for preaching on Sunday. I appreciated his willingness to bring a message from God’s Word and to share with us the insights God gave him from the Scriptures.


This coming weekend we come to the final sermon in our series, “Hearing God.” Over the weeks we learned that God can and does speak to us. We can, as ordinary people make ordinary contact with the God who is ever present and is constantly reaching out to us. We can hear God speak through the Bible, through people, through acts of love in the world and this week we are learning that we can hear God through life’s circumstances. I hope that you will be able to join us, whether it is in person or online.


Know that I am praying for you.
