MINISTRIES – BE A BECON OF LIGHT

 
Jesus told us, his disciples, to make disciples of all nations.
 
We INVITE you to join one of our ministries and together we will grow, learn and enjoy our time together, knowing that we are followers of Jesus.

MEN’s MINISTRY –

 
Our men’s ministry is a group for the men (young and old) from our community & church family.  As friends and members of the Christian community, we meet monthly.  We learn from each other, share a meal, grow from a Biblical perspective, and have fun.  In the past we have gone bowling, trap shooting, toured naval ships, attended Padres games, and watched football together as we ate our way through all 4 quarters!  All men, from teenagers to seniors, are invited to be a part of this fellowship.  
 
 

All men are welcome and encouraged to bring a friend.

 
SENIORS MINISTRY – Young @ Heart
 
 
Whether you consider yourself a senior citizen, or an early retiree, we invite you to join us for our monthly events.  Typically, we get together in Rooms 1 and 2, for a brief devotional or Bible lesson, themed lunch, movie or play cards.  Canasta, Ino, or Bridge anyone?  Together we share our Valentine stories, participate in luau’s, Fourth of July parties, and Christmas white elephant exchanges.  
 
Monthly events, check with the church or calendar for next get together.

Prayer Quilt Ministry

The prayer quilters meet each Monday from 10AM to Noon. Some sew, knit, crochet, iron, talk, and just enjoy the company of others.  The quilts are presented & dedicated in the Sunday worship service. The quilt is then presented to the person in need of special prayers.  The LCPC Prayer Ministry has made over 700+ quilts since this ministry began.  

Prayer Ministry

This is something new in 2024.  The year began with a “Walk-about With Jesus” for 4 consecutive Saturdays and read a Psalm, discussed the history and meaning followed by a peaceful walk enjoying each other’s company.
 
A 24-hour Prayer Vigil will happen Friday March 14th from 9 AM thru Saturday March 15th 9 AM.  Signup for 30-minute slot. Pray anywhere, come to the church Friday through 2PM, or pray in your home, outside, the goal is to pray.  
 
Other future get togethers will be a Prayer Breakfast, Prayer vigil, and signups for a Prayer Partner.  If you are interested or have other ideas, talk to Pastor Tim or inform the office.
 

Missional Outreach

LCPC is thrilled to be part of the spread of God’s kingdom around the world. We are active in sending missionaries and supporting these missionaries with our money and with our prayers. We support multiple missionaries around the world, from San Diego to Florida, Africa, Mexico, and Malaysia.  We encourage all of our people to respond to God’s call for laborers, whether it means they move to a foreign country, or minister in our own community.
