SPIRIT OF CHRISTMAS ON MAINE AVE.

Lakeside’s “Spirit of Christmas” on Maine Ave is Saturday December 4.  This year, LCPC will assist the Lakeside Historical Society with their sale. The Historical Society is very excited that we are willing to help during the Spirit of Christmas event (anytime between 3:30PM and 8:00PM).  Please consider signing up after church on the patio. If you have never been to Lakeside’s Christmas event, you have missed a very special time, so this year consider joining other LCPC members and volunteer at the Lakeside Historical Society and afterwards enjoy the music, food and entertainment!

 

M.O.M CHRISTMAS STORE

The Military Outreach Ministries has invited LCPC to host one of its Christmas stores for junior enlisted military families.  The event is planned for the late afternoon and evening of Tuesday, December 14th

The Christmas store is for two housing units in Lakeside:  Woodlake and Eucalyptus Ridge, plus the housing facility in Ramona.  Once again, Sioux Swart and her crew will give horse-drawn wagon rides.  MOM will furnish all the gift items and will organize the running of the store.  Church volunteers will be needed for set-up, helping families with shopping, childcare (and craft time), light refreshments, and clean-up.  We will need volunteers for 2 to 3 hour shifts.  There will be sign up opportunities on the patio.  Please keep Tues., Dec 14th in mind to help with this worthy project to support our military personnel and their families.  If you have helped in the past, you know it is a heart-warming experience and also fun!  Please contact Sioux Swart or Jolene Rich with any questions or to volunteer!
