Online Sunday Services in April

 
 
Worshipping at the Lamington Crossroads Since 1740 
 
We are a family of faith wrapping our arms around God's world
and making Jesus Christ a way of life
through worship, as we praise and glorify God;
through study, as we listen for God's Word in body, mind and spirit;
through mission, as we embody God's love in service to the world;
through giving, as we express gratitude to God;
through fellowship, as we love and care for one another.
 
 
Important Communication


“…we have not ceased praying for you and asking that you may be filled with the knowledge of God’s will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding, so that you may lead lives worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to him, as you bear fruit in every good work and as you grow in the knowledge of God. May you be made strong with all the strength that comes from his glorious power, and may you be prepared to endure everything with patience, while joyfully giving thanks to the Father, who has enabled you to share in the inheritance of the saints in the light. He has rescued us from the power of darkness and transferred us into the kingdom of his beloved Son, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.” – Colossians 1:9 - 14

 

These verses serve not only as part of a larger greeting but also as an intercessory prayer. As we all continue to practice spatial distancing (rather than social distancing), let us be encouraged and strengthened by these words as we “endure everything with patience.” Patience is a special commodity during this time of uncertainty. We eagerly await a time when we can return to our “normal” routine and activities; yet, we know that nothing is more important than to heed the advice of medical experts and continue to stay home. By doing so, I believe, we are indeed bearing fruit in every good work.

The Lamington Church continues to bear fruit by continuing with your mission out into the world. Lunch bags continue to be filled and food bank assistance continues in new ways. The Deacons are making phone calls to check in with their flocks, offering words of encouragement and prayer. And your Session continues to meet via Zoom on a weekly basis to check in with one another to lead with energy, intelligence, imagination, and love.

Yes, these are challenging times; but as people of faith, we can rely on our collective prayers, providing us hope, strengthening us for the coming of these days. As a people of faith who are in them midst of a Lenten journey, we have the knowledge that the darkness of the world cannot overcome the light we find in and through our faith in the one who provides us with the resurrection hope, Jesus Christ, the light of the world. 



Peace be with you,

Worship With Us!

 

Sunday morning worship takes place in the Sanctuary on Sundays at 10:15AM.  The Sacrament of the Lord’s Supper is celebrated on the first Sunday of every month. Following worship we gather for fellowship in the Gladish Room and enjoy coffee and conversation.

Children are welcome in all our worship services. During the school year, Sunday School classes for kids from pre-school through Grade 7 take place on Sunday mornings in the classrooms. Children come into the worship service with their parents, then leave with their church school teachers after the Children’s Moment (about 10:45AM). Parents then pick their children up at the conclusion of Sunday School (around 11:30AM). 

Baptisms and weddings may be arranged by contacting the church office. At least one parent/adult must be a member of the Lamington Presbyterian Church. All baptisms and weddings are subject to Session approval.
