A MESSAGE FROM ANDY WILSON (Public Worship Reopening on the LCPC Campus)

A MESSAGE FROM ANDY WILSON (Public Worship Reopening on the LCPC Campus)

UPDATE:  7/14/2020

 

Hello beloved LCPC family!

By now you’ve probably heard:   Governor Newsom has now prohibited all forms of worship inside church buildings.

In response to this mandate, LCPC is implementing PLAN C. We’re all moving outdoors! Every Sunday through September, 2020, we’ll gather in the LCPC Courtyard from 6:30-7:20p.m. for a joyful time of socially-distanced, al fresco worship! Come for the kick-off this Sunday, July 19!

What can you expect at our new Evensong Al Fresco services?

  • Interactive, Spirit-filled prayer times
  • Contemplative live music performed by extraordinary musicians (still no singing allowed)
  • Bible readings and an inspiring message (same as the ones heard online)
  • COVID-safe practices including social distancing and mask-wearing
  • Fresh baked cookies, ice water, sanitizer, masks and gloves – all free!

Well-spaced seating will be available throughout the Courtyard facing the stage and in front of the upper floor railings.

Very few churches in California will be offering public worship. Tell your friends who are stir-crazy from sheltering and hungry for Good News!

Remember, too:  we still offer a Spirit-filled online worship option. We post a new service every Sunday morning at 9:00a.m. that can be accessed at this website or the LCPC YouTube channel.

Don’t give in to discouragement! Trust in the Lord! Stay connected to his body – his beloved Bride – the Church!

In Christ’s love,

Andy Wilson

UPDATE:  7/7/2020

Hello church family!

May the grace and peace of Jesus be with you.

We continue to worship online and to offer public services every Sunday on the LCPC campus. We re-opened for public worship on June 14. Please join us for one or more of the four worship options described below.

Since learning on July 1 that Governor Newsom banned all singing in public worship services we’ve found creative ways to incorporate music. Though we don’t sing together at any of the three on-campus services, we do “make a joyful noise to the Lord.”

  • At 9 am our full band plays ‘as usual’, and our singer – usually Lana Sanfilippo – sings from inside the sanctuary drum booth. We see her through the plate glass! And since the booth is a separate room, we aren’t in violation of the singing prohibition.
  • At 11 am, for classic worship, we do the same thing. Hymns are sung by a soloist in the drum booth. We also incorporate solos and ensembles by Gary Woodward, Elzbieta Nawrocka and other highly-gifted musicians.

The musical restrictions are helping us to listen more closely to what the Spirit is saying to the church and to be more focused and interactive in the ways that we pray.

If you’re healthy and eager to reconnect with friends, we hope you’ll consider worshipping at one of our three public Sunday services. And as always, we’re encouraging everyone to spread the word about the powerful services we’re posting every Sunday on YouTube (accessible there or through this website).

In Christ’s love,

Andy Wilson

UPDATE:  6/25/2020

Greetings in the wonderful name of Jesus!

Praise God – many of us in the LCPC family are now worshipping every Sunday morning in the sanctuary and courtyard! We re-opened for public worship on Sunday, June 14 and welcomed 116 people to our three services. Our team of more than a dozen enthusiastic worship support volunteers is helping up to maintain high standards for hygiene and social distancing.

Many more people continue to worship via the services we post on YouTube on Sundays at 9:00am. Those services are available anytime. You can access them through this website or on our YouTube channel. 

Here’s a summary you can use to let people know about the four worship services that LCPC now offers: 

  • 9AM NEW SONG CONTEMPORARY WORSHIP IN THE SANCTUARY, with music led by our praise band, The Blessed
  • 9AM NEW SONG CONTEMPORARY “AL FRESCO” WORSHIP, a friendly, worshipful simulcast of the New Song service on an 86” screen in the courtyard
  • 11AM CLASSIC WORSHIP IN THE SANCTUARY, with music led by Gary Woodward, Elzbieta Nawrocka and our Choral Music Department
  • ONLINE WORSHIP POSTED AT 9AM, AVAILABLE VIA YOUTUBE AND LCPC.NET, pre-recorded, but with the same readings and message as the other three services

Below we’ve posted the guidelines and other details relating to our efforts to prevent the spread of COVID. As you see, we practice social distancing… require masks… encouraging hand washing… offer free sanitizer, masks and gloves… prohibit socializing indoors… don’t have a “greeting time” or coffee fellowship. In the courtyard we require temperature screening.

Everyone today needs a heavy infusion of Good News. Our world needs the Lord Jesus Christ! Spread the word!

UPDATE:  6/7/2020

Greetings church family!

The time has come at last for us to re-open for public worship on the LCPC campus. The first services will be Sunday, June 14. Alleluia!

Some of you will want to know all about what we’re doing to prevent the spread of COVID. I’ll post that information below. If you just want to know the basic schedule and key guidelines, read this letter and skim or skip the part that follows.

Starting on June 14 and probably continuing through the summer, we’ll offer 4 worship options, all featuring the same readings and message:

  • 9am New Song Contemporary worship in the sanctuary (music led by our praise band, The Blessed)
  • 9am New Song Contemporary “Al Fresco” worship, a friendly, worshipful simulcast of the New Song service on an 86” screen in the courtyard
  • 11am Classic worship in the sanctuary (music led by Gary Woodward, Elzbieta Nawrocka and our Choral Music Department)
  • Online worship posted at 9am on YouTube and at lcpc.net (pre-recorded, but with the same readings and message as the other 3 services)

The key guidelines? We’ll practice social distancing. We’ll require masks during worship. We’ll encouraging hand washing and offer free sanitizer, masks and gloves. We’ll discourage socializing indoors. We won’t have a “greeting time” during services or coffee fellowship between services. In the courtyard we’ll require temperature screening.

Spread the word! Tell your friends! Think of people who’ve had a hard time during the sheltering and the turmoil following the death of George Floyd and invite them to join you in worship!

Can’t wait to see you!

Andy

WHAT WILL WORSHIP AT LCPC LOOK LIKE AFTER JUNE 14?

Our planning process for re-opening involved many hours of discussion, research and prayer. Our goals have been: (1) to obey laws and follow sound guidelines provided by various government agencies; (2) to provide choices, especially for those who want or need a high level of safety; and (3) to set a high standard of excellence for all services.

What does a “reasonable” level of safety looks like? As we worked through the issues we realized: it looks different to different people. Some have health challenges or live with people with health challenges that require them to exercise extreme caution. Others just don’t feel comfortable being indoors with any more than a few people. We’ve designed the courtyard service and our online service with those people in mind. We want everyone to feel welcome and included.

Safety Guidelines:

Seeking to prevent the spread of COVID, the LCPC Session has established these worship guidelines:

  • All will be encouraged to use hand sanitizer as they enter and exit worship
  • All worshipers will be required to wear masks (except worship leaders on the chancel/stage when reading, speaking, leading singing or playing wind instruments)
  • Disposable masks and gloves will be available at no charge
  • Socializing in circles will be prohibited in the sanctuary building (family groups excepted)
  • We will sing at all worship services
  • We will not offer special programs for children or youth
  • We will not have a greeting time during services or a fellowship time between services
  • At the 11:00 am Classic service: the LCPC Choir will be on summer hiatus, but various ensembles of singers and musicians will be featured throughout the summer
  • We will not offer Communion in public worship until July 19 at the earliest
    - An online option will be offered before that time
    - During summer Communion the meal will be brought to worshippers at their seats in trays using small plastic cups (for both bread and juice)
  • Bulletins will be handed out by ushers
  • The offering will be collected at all services using baskets on poles (a common practice in many churches!)

In the sanctuary:

  • Every other pew will be blocked off and 6’ distancing in seating will be required (family groups excepted)
  • For an extra measure of safety the back 2 open pews (north end) will be separated by 2 closed pews
  • The swinging doors leading from hallways and narthex in sanctuary will be propped open
  • If the temperature rises above 80 degrees, the doors will be closed and air conditioning turned on
  • The ‘Cry Room’ adjacent to the balcony will be available for parents and young children
  • A team of 4 people will clean and disinfect the sanctuary, narthex and sanctuary area bathrooms between services

In the courtyard:

  • Chairs will be placed 7’ apart

  • Those worshiping in the courtyard will be required to stop at one of two health stations for a temperature check
  • Those with a fever will be prevented from entering and special assistance will be offered

UPDATE:  5/27/2020

Hello church family,

The Lord is calling his body back together all over the world! The date for returning to public worship for LCPC will be Sunday, June 14, 2020! Spread the word! Bring your friends!

As you probably know, Governor Newsom declared on May 25 that CA churches could re-open for worship (with restrictions, including a 100 person limit). The LA County Board of Supervisors followed up a day later with a decision to lift worship restrictions in the county. With that news just a few hours old, the Session met Tuesday night, May 26 and established a set of policies that will guide us as we worship our awesome God.

Soon we’ll post a complete outline of the new worship policies, but here are the most important points:

As we greet one another and lift up our God we’ll practice social distancing… use hand sanitizer… encourage each other to wear masks… use common sense!

We’ll offer the usual 2 services in the sanctuary – 9 am contemporary and 11 am classic.

We’ll also offer a 3rd al fresco service in the courtyard at 9 am where the contemporary service taking place in the sanctuary will be live-streamed on an 84” TV screen. It will be a friendly, worshipful option for those seeking a higher level of precaution: temperatures will be taken, distancing will be greater and masks will be mandatory.

Families with children or youth will worship together. Separate rooms adjacent to the services will be available for young children and parents.

Some may wish to worship online. We’ll continue to post Spirit-filled services at lcpc.net even after we return for public worship.

A new day is dawning. The Lord has huge blessings in store for his church and lots of exciting work for us to do. Therefore, “let us be thankful, and so worship God acceptably with reverence and awe”
(Hebrews 12:28).

Joyfully,
Andy Wilson

LCPC UPDATE FROM ANDY WILSON (4-14-20)

Hello LCPC family! I hope you are experiencing God’s deep peace as you abide with the Risen Christ in your homes. I miss you – we all miss each other! But suddenly there’s talk nation-wide about how we might unwind the sheltering. Praise God!

Briefly, here are the most important real-time developments in our church’s life:

WORSHIP!

Your worship team continues to record and post services for viewing starting at 9am every Sunday.

  • You can click into this site, LCPC.net, or go to the LCPC YouTube account to watch any recent service.
  • The Lord has opened an unprecedented opportunity to extend our outreach and spread his Gospel of hope. Please share the link to our services and invite people you know to worship with us!

Many people joined our live Maundy Thursday Lord’s Supper service on the LCPC Facebook page. We’re hungry for fellowship with the Lord and each other! So we will schedule another evening communion service within the next two weeks. Watch for details.

Going forward, we’ll be recording readings, prayers and messages from different locations in our community. The band will still be in the sanctuary (songs were pre-recorded there).

CONNECTING ONLINE!

As you’ll discover from a quick tour of this site and the LCPC Facebook page, there are lots of fun ways to connect throughout the week with Children’s Ministry and Student Ministry. (Students: also check out: Abide/Student Ministry at LCPC.)

Lee Cook continues to offer an enriching study/reflection on the Psalms every weekday morning at 9am on the LCPC Facebook page.

I’m posting regularly on my “reflections” blog on this site, on the LCPC Facebook page and on my personal FB page.

OUTREACH!

CV Together, LCPC’s COVID-era outreach, continues to think creatively about ways LCPC can help our neighbors.

  • Clink the home page banner to seek help (for you or another), volunteer or donate.
  • So far a limited number of people have reached out for help but we expect that to change as economic conditions worsen.

CAMPS, RETREATS AND MISSION TRIPS!

Sooner or later, the sheltering will end and “normal” life will resume.

We are NOT planning a summer shut-down. Unless we’re still sheltering in late May, you can assume these beloved events will take place:

  • Dominican Republic Outreach (June 13-22)
  • Vacation Bible School (Ages 4 years through 6th grade, July 13-17)
  • High School camp at Mount Hermon (July 19-25)
  • Wildlife Tour (Sierra Nevada hiking trip, July 26-29)
  • SPARKS summer camp at Forest Home for rising 4th-6th graders (August 2-5)
  • Junior High camp on Catalina Island with Campus-by-the-Sea (August 6-9)

 

UPDATE:  4/3/20
HOLY WEEK OBSERVANCES AND CELEBRATIONS!

We’ll be posting pre-recorded worship services for:

  • PALM SUNDAY (April 5) at 9:00am
  • GOOD FRIDAY (April 10) at 6:30pm
  • EASTER (April 12) at 9:00am

Each will include inspiring music and a message and will last about 30 minutes. May the Spirit use them to unite our hearts and fill us with love for our amazing God!

Invite your friends to join us! Send them this a sermon link https://www.lcpc.net/resources/sermons/ or direct them to LCPC.net!

MAUNDY THURSDAY COMMUNION – LIVE-STREAMED FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY!

Do you miss sharing the Lord’s Supper with your church family? This Thursday evening we’re going celebrate the sacrament together even as we shelter in our homes. Tune in to the LCPC Facebook page this Thursday, April 9 at 7:00pm. Pastor Andy Wilson will lead this simple time of worship from his family dinner table. We’ll eat, pray and sing one or two songs.

Here’s what you’ll want to do to prepare:

  • Set your table (or a place where you can see a screen) with bread and either grape juice or red wine.
  • To ensure sanitation we won’t pass the meal from one person to another, so set a place for each person in your family.
  • If you have children and you want to include them (we hope you will!), explain that we’ll be sharing the bread and cup to remember Christ’s body broken for us and his blood shed for us.
  • Turn on your phone, tablet or computer at around 6:50pm and go to LCPC’s Facebook page.
  • The live-streamed service will begin at 7:00pm. We’ll be together 20-25 minutes.

Reminder:  “CV TOGETHER” – A COMMUNITY CARE MINISTRY IS UP AND RUNNING.  Our purpose is to help people in the church family and wider community who are home-bound or need special assistance during the COVID-19 Crisis.  

 

UPDATE:  3/26/20

Greetings LCPC family – and welcome online visitors!

In this strange season news headlines are changing from hour to hour. Church life also is in flux so I’ll be using this streamlined Q and A format to keep you fully-informed. Let’s worship together and stay connected

Pastor Andy Wilson

 

WHAT’S GOING ON WITH SUNDAY WORSHIP SERVICES?

For the next few Sundays (at least through Easter) we’ll continue to videotape services with uplifting music by our praise band and prayers and messages by our staff. Because they aren’t live streamed you can watch and worship anytime! Tell a friend!

Services are posted on YouTube at 9 am on Sundays. They’re accessible directly from this website.

Click the banner: “LCPC WORSHIP SERVICE FOR…”  Or go to:  lcpc.net/resources/sermons

WHAT’S AVAILABLE FOR KIDS (6TH GRADE AND UNDER) AND PARENTS?

Ashley and Kristy are writing and posting special devotionals. Also, kids can participate in On-Line Hangouts or contribute to our Easter Art Gallery!

Go to:  lcpc.net/ministries/children/

WHAT ABOUT MIDDLE SCHOOL AND HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS?

Josh and the Abide team have prepared online meet-ups, devotionals, games and more.

HOW CAN I CONNECT WITH PEOPLE, WORSHIP, STUDY THE WORD AND PRAY THROUGH THE WEEK?

Lee Cook is leading a Facebook Live Bible Study of Psalms most mornings at 9 am. Watch for FB notices of Praise Music Singalongs and other inspiring messages. 

Go to:   facebook.com/lacrescenta.presbyterianchurch/ 

WHAT’S LCPC DOING TO HELP THE COMMUNITY? HOW CAN I VOLUNTEER? HOW CAN I GET HELP?

In response to the COVID crisis, LCPC has just launched a special outreach ministry. Click the “CV Together” banner for more information. Using the 3 online forms provided you can volunteer, donate or seek aid.

WHERE CAN I GO IF I NEED PRAYER?

Pull down the “MINISTRIES” menu and select “Prayer Request.” Use the “PrayerChainOnline” form to submit a request. Our prayer team will connect with you and pray for you.

WHAT ABOUT UPCOMING RETREATS AND TRIPS? ARE THEY CANCELED?

No! We still hope to take a team of men to Rosarito, MX in May to build a house. We’re still going to the Dominican Republic June 13-22 (under the “EVENTS” menu you’ll find registration info). And we’re still hiking the eastern Sierras on the Wildlife Tour July 26-29!

WHAT LCPC EVENTS ARE CANCELED? WHAT ABOUT COMMITTEE AND MINISTRY AREA MEETINGS?

All gatherings greater than 10 are canceled. It’s up to small group leaders and committee/ministry area moderators to decide if their groups will meet. Some are using teleconferencing. If in doubt, check the church’s Shelby calendar (also posted on this website) for real time information.

WHAT’S HAPPENING WITH THE CHURCH STAFF AND THE CENTER FOR CHILDREN?

The Center for Children has been closed since March 12. We hope to re-open soon! The LCPC campus is quiet, but most of the church staff is working as hard as ever. We’re connecting lots more online and over the phone.

 

UPDATE:  3/21/20

Greetings LCPC family!

May the grace and peace of Jesus be with you! 

These days have been stressful for all of us. But the church family is standing strong! The Lord is on his throne! The Spirit continues to guide and strengthen us! 

Earlier this week the LCPC leadership team made the unanimous decision to cease public worship in the sanctuary. Because of the new pronouncement from the governor, we aren’t sure when services and other large gatherings will resume. Of course we’ll give you regular updates by email and on the LCPC website.

The good news is that we will still be able to worship together online! For the next month (and possibly beyond) a small group of us will be filming a worship service on Saturday and posting it on YouTube so it will be available on Sunday at 9 am (or anytime thereafter). 

Worship leaders will include staff ministry directors, other volunteers and me. Services will last about 50 minutes. Our wonderful 9 am praise band will lead music, including praise songs and hymns. Lee Cook will preach. This Sunday I’ll offer a short reflection and update. I’ll also tell you more about the new neighborhood outreach ministry described below (C V Together). 

Most of you will find it easy to access the service. You’ll just have to go to the LCPC web page (www.lcpc.net) and click on the link to the pre-recorded worship service on YouTube. It will be available starting at 9 am every Sunday. We’ll start this Sunday, March 22! Because the service will be taped – not live-streamed – it will be available any time after it is posted. 

You may wonder: Why is our worship team gathering to film? Isn’t that a violation of the ban on public gatherings? The ban does not apply to those offering vital public services and we believe worship (even if it is online) qualifies as a vital service. So we’re proceeding on that basis with our small production team. That could change if the ban is expanded in a way that explicitly prohibits taping and posting worship services. 

I’ll write you again later. I’ll also reflect with you through short online videos about walking in the Spirit in a time of crisis.

Trust God – don’t give in to fear – remember the words of Jesus: “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid” (John 14:27).

Andy Wilson

_______________________________________
 
 
HERE’S A SUMMARY OF THE MOST IMPORTANT DEVELOPMENTS: 
 
  • We’re working to funnel all information about church life onto the church web site ( www.lcpc.net ). Go there if you have questions. You can also check the Shelby calendar; the information there is updated daily. 
  • Children’s Ministry and Student Ministry will be posting Bible studies, web-based activities, prayers and other resources throughout the week. Messages and resources from Children’s Ministry can be found on the LCPC website, and from Student Ministries/Abide on the Abide website (which is linked to the LCPC site). Watch for texts and emails from Ashley and Josh!
  • Our Center for Children was officially closed on Thursday for two weeks. It now appears the CFC closure will have to be extended. Pray for our teachers, aids and administrators! And our CFC families!
  • All group gatherings of 10 or more are cancelled until further notice. Wednesday PEAK… Abide Fellowship… Cruisers… Sunday School… Choir…Bistro 50 – these and all other ‘10+’ meetings are cancelled.
  • What about small groups, prayer circles and ministry area/committee meetings? We don’t want to violate the restrictions imposed by various government agencies. So the guideline, for now, is that small groups and committees should rely on email, conference calls or other cyber-solutions to connect. 
  • What will happen during Holy Week? 
  • Maundy Thursday worship will be cancelled (mainly because the Lord’s Supper is only meaningful if we’re physically present). 
  • We will tape and post Good Friday and Easter services.

“CV TOGETHER” – A COMMUNITY CARE MINISTRY JUST LAUNCHED BY LCPC

 

Our purpose: To help people in the church family and wider community who are home-bound or need special assistance.
