Love Does Service Day

Lenten Study: Questioning Jesus
March 1 – April 4
Lent is a time when we get a boost in our spiritual lives. This year during Lent we will explore the questions that people put to Jesus in Luke 9:51-19:28 while he is on the way to Jerusalem. Small groups will focus on these texts in a way that encourages participants to reflect deeply and personally on them, and even to wrestle with them. The goal is to engage the text each week in a way that shapes and nurtures our own faith in the safe, welcoming context of a small group.
REGISTER HERE. Study guides will be available online and in the Ministry Center during the week. Pick up a list of groups with dates, times, and locations on the Plaza or visit the website.
Love Does Family
Thursday, March 26, 2:00 p.m. - 4:30 p.m.
Please join us for an after school love does family service project for the benefit of Contra Costa Interfaith Housing (CCIH) and Monument Crisis Center (MCC), two of LOPC’s longstanding mission partners. This is an afternoon of service that we know your preschool through middle school-aged child(ren) will enjoy as we assemble Easter baskets and make cards for CCIH, create toiletry kits for MCC, and share an afternoon snack! Invite your friends and come join us for fellowship and fun while we all work together to make an impact on the lives of others in our greater community!
Please RSVP here. Though drop-ins are welcome, we appreciate advance sign-ups for planning purposes.
5TH & 6TH GRADE SERVICE SQUAD
June 1 - 5
Youth who have completed 5th or 6th grade in MAY will serve for a couple hours each day with a local (East Bay) mission partner, then returning to debrief and reflect on their experience. Youth will become acquainted with the many ways in which we can share God’s love even within our own community! Our dream is that this week will inspire youth for a life of serving and loving others. Service may include food sorting and packing, yardwork, visiting the elderly and home-bound, running programs for children living in a shelter, and more!

HIGH SCHOOL SERVICE LEARNING TRIP: WAPATO, WASHINGTON
June 20 - 27
Youth who complete 9th-12th grade in May will travel to Wapato, Washington to partner with an indigenous led organization: S.L.A.M. (Students Learning About Missions). S.L.A.M. is based within the Yakima Nation and focuses on teaching outside groups how they follow ‘The Jesus Way’ through their native traditions. Youth service teams will witness various ceremonies, learn about the history and culture of the Yakima people, and provide basic housework service in tribe elders’ homes. The trip will be mainly relational— aiming to deepen our understanding and connections to the larger body of Christ from a different cultural, historical and spiritual perspective.
