Pastor’s Note 5/28/21


I have some bittersweet news to share with the LCPC family as we are going to be saying “goodbye” to Silvia, our church’s
secretary. Silvia gave her two-week notice last Friday as she has been offered a new position at a business in Santee and will be
starting there on June 7.

Our sister in Christ

As many of you know, Silvia has been the heart and soul of our church’s office for over 5 years. She is much more than a
secretary who answers the phone and puts together a Sunday bulletin. She has been the smiling face as you are greeted at the
door, the pleasant voice that answers the church phones and the problem solver to many of our situations. She always goes above and beyond what is expected and most importantly, she has been a prayer warrior for so many situations that have arisen at church. Silvia will be dearly missed and hard to replace.


We are having a going away lunch for Silvia next Wednesday, June 2 from 12-1pm if you would like to personally say your
good-byes to her. (Please let Gary MacDonald know that you will be coming to the lunch so we can plan accordingly. Contact the church if you need Gary’s email or phone number). Let’s all pray for Silvia and the various transitions that are
Blessings on the rest of your week

Pastor’s Note 5/21/21

“Jacob’s well was there, and Jesus, tired as He was from the journey, sat down by the well. It was about noon.”

John 4:6

The Long Journey

This week my wife Karyn and I are moving. We finally will be able to get the keys to our new home and get settled into a new neighborhood. It has been a long journey in getting to this point.

(If I really think about it, it has been years in the making. You can ask me about the long journey some time).

Throughout this journey and our search for our new home we have been praying that God would lead us to the right place. We wanted to be in a place that not only we liked, but also a place in a neighborhood where we were needed. As we get the keys to the home this week, we don’t know what God has in store, so our eyes and ears will be wide open to see what God is up to. It may take years to realize the reason but we do know that God has been leading us. In the meantime, we want to be good neighbors.


Being a Good Neighbor

Being a good neighbor is in short supply these days. We tend to live behind our closed garage doors, not building relationships with those around us. Sometimes it makes life easier when we do this. It means less small talk, less time away from “more important” things but sometimes that is what Jesus wants us to do. He wants us to be good neighbors, available to others, so that we can “do good,”  or when someone asks us a question, and we can point them to Him. That’s what happened to Jesus and the woman at the well in John 4. The same thing can happen to you and to me when we make ourselves available.


So be a good neighbor and let’s see what God is up to. I can’t wait to hear your stories!


Know that I am praying for you and I will see you on Sunday.
