A note from the Pastor

“Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances;
for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.”
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

Giving thanks is an important part of the life of the Christ-follower. Gratitude to God for His guidance and His blessings is something that we are to do. So in good and even difficult times, we are to give praises to God. With this in mind, it is with much gratitude and praise that I write these words to all of you for my time here at LCPC. God has been good, He has been generous, and He has been trustworthy. I can see His fingerprints on so many different aspects of my year here and I continue to trust Him as together, we move forward in His Kingdom work.

So as we make preparations for next week’s Thanksgiving celebrations and gatherings, pause long enough to give God thanks. Even if you are in a difficult season of life, give thanks where you can. Reflect on how He has been faithful in the past. Pause long enough to see His kindness today. Look for the blessings that He has and He is providing. This is a good spiritual exercise to do on a regular basis.

Also, be in prayer for me and my family as we travel to Texas to celebrate daughter Lauren’s marriage to Thomas Watson. It will be a grand celebration, Texas style, so we are looking forward to all that will take place.

Y’all have a great rest of the week.

A Note from the Pastor, 11/13/21

We are a vibrant church, growing in love for Jesus Christ who seek to make a difference through Worship, Community and Service.


        Thanks to all of you who were able to attend last Sunday’s Congregational Meeting in order to take care of the necessary business of the church. In the midst of all of the elections and approvals you asked some very good questions about our church, our future and what are the steps that we are taking to becoming the vibrant difference making church that we want to be.

        As we continue to grapple with the issues that we have we will always remember some of the characteristics of the God that we know and love. These characteristics of God have been a part of our sermon series these past weeks, The Good and Beautiful God. Together we have learned that our God is good, our God is trustworthy, our God is generous, our God is love, our God is holy, our God is self-sacrificing, and our God transforms. Being reminded of this is important as we move forward to being a vibrant church.  So be praying for our church and that we might love the God that Jesus reveals to us and share that good news with others.

Know that I am praying for you and for our church and I hope to see you this weekend.
