Church Mouse: July 2019

Posted by Church Mouse on

Summer’s in full force around LCPC! Kids are giddy about Summer break, college students are home, graduation and vacation pictures are all over Facebook and Instagram, and the weather is heating up! I hope that 100-degree hot spell a few weeks ago is not an indication of what the rest of the Summer will be like! Congratulations to all our graduates! The Cary Family hosted another fantastic Senior Banquet at their lovely home and eight of our graduating seniors were showered with love and good wishes, along with a delicious taco dinner, photo booth, and presentation of a yam - a little reminder that they will always be welcome at the Sunday night YAM (Young Adult Ministry) gatherings! We’re starting off the month with Dodger Night on July 2. We have a block of seats along the 3rd baseline and it’s always a fabulous night of cheering for our favorite team! Tickets are $30. Email Craig Carlson at to
see if he might have a ticket or two left. CFC will be having their annual Red, White and Blue Parade along Montrose Avenue on Wednesday, July 3, at 11:00 AM. Right afterwards there will be a bonus Bistro 50+ BBQ lunch in Koopmans. Come join the festivities! The long awaited VBS “In the Wild – Amazing Encounters with Jesus” is just days away! You can register your kids online at lcpcVBS or grab a registration form in the church office. It’s 9:00 AM to Noon, July 8-12, and it’s just $40 for a week of games, crafts, skits, stories and Jesus. Best deal in town! From July 12-15 there will be a team heading down to Rosarito, Mexico to continue work on the Casa de Los Angeles Orphanage. They would love to have you join them if you are high school age or older and have a passport. Contact Pastor Andy to sign up. LCPC kids will be well represented at the coolest camps in California this month. Junior highers will be spending five days in Catalina at Campus by the Sea July 18-22; SPARKS will be heading up to Forest Home’s The Village July 21-26; and high schoolers will be at their happy place Mount Hermon in Santa Cruz July 28-August 3, along with nine LCPC young adults who will be working at the camp this Summer. Our kids love camp so much that they can’t wait to work there and give kids the
same incredible experiences they had. For those of you who have been anxiously awaiting a chance to become a member of our wonderful church family – the wait is over! There are two new member classes coming up - Wednesday, July 17, and Wednesday, July 31. You only need to attend one. Contact Nancy in the office for all the details. Josh is excited to have a new Summer intern, Allie Fernandez! Allie will be working with Josh while Austin is at Mount Hermon. Becca is scaling back her time at LCPC to focus on her Ph.D. program at Fuller Seminary, but will still continue to lead a high school girls small group. Josh and Allie have started up a high school Bible study every Friday afternoon, 1:30-3:00 PM at Tickle Tree Café on Foothill. Kids just need a Bible and money for coffee.
