WELCOME TO GUESTS! - We are so glad to have you with us today. If you have needs or questions, just reach out to an usher or Pastor, or use the contact info on the back of the bulletin. We’d love to hear from you! Turn in your guest card to an usher to receive a little token of our friendship. 



LPCC is dedicated to sharing God’s love and grace by providing individuals and families with education, resources, and supportive mentoring for life-affirming choices regarding pregnancy, pregnancy loss, childbirth, and early childhood parenting.

Our mission statement has changed slightly to add early childhood parenting, and we are blessed to see many little ones come in with their parent(s)!

Please join us in this community ministry by filling a baby bottle with monetary gifts!
