LPC's Outreach Ministry coordinates a number of projects throughout the year in conjunction with other ministries and fellowship groups to provide assistance to those in need in our community, our country, and our world. We believe strongly in living our faith and knowing that the love of God extends far outside our church walls through our hearts and hands.

Is there a mission focus you would like to see LPC become involved in that we are not already supporting?  Email the church office at info@lpcjax and let us hear from you.  We are open to new ideas.

I.C.A.R.E.

 “What would be different if Jacksonville were the city God intended?” You are invited to dream big with us and explore this topic in our annual discussion groups sponsored by LPC's Justice Ministry Network (as part of I.C.A.R.E.'s annual listening process).  In addition to LPC, 38 other congregations will be having similar events this year.

Meeting Date: Tuesday, Oct. 10, at 11:30 a.m., at the home of Linda Allen, 1604 Arcadia Dr. Unit 310, 32207. Lunch will be provided.

On November 14, I.C.A.R.E. leaders will vote on priorities for 2018 based on the issues raised during our discussion groups. This event is I.C.A.R.E.'s Community Problems Assembly and is being held at Christ the King Catholic Church at 7:00 p.m. More information will be included in the November newsletter.
