GOD’S LOVE ENACTED – During Lent our children did 142 acts of kindness, showing God’s love to others. We pledged to match these loving acts with a love offering of one dollar per act of kindness. If you wish to participate in this offering mark your donation: “Children’s Sunday School Project”.

CONGREGATIONAL BRUNCH-The postponed brunch has been rescheduled for Sat. May 4 at 10:30am. Please sign-up on the list at the back of the sanctuary if you plan to come.

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

PCC MISSION MOMENTS Rebuilding businesses and dreams
In Malawi, Lucia and her husband care for their six orphaned grandchildren. It’s a lot of work to meet the needs of a large family, but Lucia was earning a good income running a grocery store—a dream she’d always had. When her husband fell ill, Lucia used all her earnings to pay hospital bills and could no longer afford her grandchildren’s school fees. When her husband was discharged, Lucia had no money left to rebuild the business she loved. An answer to her prayers, Lucia received a loan to get her store running again through a Presbyterian World Service & Development-supported self-help group. “I was worried about how I would pay school fees and provide for my grandchildren’s basic needs,” Lucia said. “Self-help groups have really helped.”
