HELP WANTED – LPC is hosting an evening of exploration for people who are affiliated with our congregation but who do not find attending Sunday worship possible or perhaps meaningful. The intent of our evening is to help these people explore possible ways of forming an alternative community that would help them to grow in their discipleship to Jesus.
To make this evening a success we need the following helpers:
• Two adult nursery helpers
• One or more people who will prepare and lead the older children in a craft time and perhaps some outdoor activities
• Two people to set up the hall for a buffet style meal
• Two or more people to cook a spaghetti dinner with two sauces (one veg. one meat), garlic bread, Cesar salad and a dessert
• Two or more people to help clean up after the event
•  Musicians & their instruments
Date & Time: May 11, 2019 – meet & greet at 4:30 PM, dinner at 5:00 PM
Place: Langley Presbyterian Church Hall
Sign up sheet: In rear of sanctuary

PCC MISSION MOMENTS Earth Day (April 22)
On Earth Day, we reflect on the uniqueness of God’s creation and the ecosystems that nourish us. Unfortunately, contributions to greenhouse gas emissions continue to take a toll on the planet’s health and trigger extreme weather patterns such as prolonged drought and heavy rains. These weather patterns can make it difficult for small-scale farmers in the global south to meet their food needs and earn liveable incomes. The need to adapt to these challenges is now a reality, and Presbyterian World Service & Development is providing support. In Guatemala, Haiti, Malawi and Nicaragua, PWS&D is empowering farmers to learn sustainable, environmentally-friendly farming techniques that both heal the earth and improve crop yields.
