Those things that deserve our thanks and applause
If you have information about your ministry that you would like displayed, please contact Meg Shefield. Enjoy watching the photos pass by. You'll recognize friends, family, and perhaps yourself, happily engaged in good fellowship with each other.
The Kirkin' of the Tartans on January 29th was wonderful! The Florida Times Union posted pictures taken by our own Will Dickey and you can see them by clicking on http://jacksonville.com/slideshow/slideshows/2017-01-31/kirkin-tartans-lakewood-presbyterian#slide-1
Things Coming Up
Knit Wits is continuing their ministry to LPC members by knitting prayer shawls. There will be another blessing of these at a church service late in the summer or early fall. If you would like to knit or crochet one, please contact Ann Sorry Meadows through the church office or visit www.ravelry.com for free prayer shawl patterns. Finished projects may be brought to the church office and will be blessed before being delivered to an LPC member in need of extra comfort.
Meals on Wheels needs drivers for the 1st, 4th and 5th Fridays and for the 5th Monday of the month. If you can spare some time to bring a hot meal to senior citizens in our community, please contact Marty Succi, LPC member, and Meals on Wheels coordinator.
There is a need for nursery volunteers who are willing to be in the nursery when the regular attendant is absent or to be a second person in the room with the attendant to meet child protection policy requirements. If you have had child protection training or are willing to be trained and could be a volunteer or substitute for nursery coverage on Sunday mornings or Wednesday evenings, please contact Lenora Wilson. It would be ideal to have a list of willing volunteers to provide coverage on a rotating or "as needed" basis.
