In local outreach, we use our time, talents and resources to share the love of Christ with our neighbors in the Los Angeles area as well as throughout the United States overall. LCPC members serve regularly and provide ongoing financial support to about 19 local ministry partners that care for the poor and forgotten: providing shelter for the homeless and food for the hungry; educating children, youth and their parents; helping abused women and children; and providing safety and hope for at-risk youth.

Local SERVEOpps
These local group service projects are a great way to serve and learn from the poor and underserved right here in LA County.  Click here to find out more, and check the bulletin for current opportunities in the coming months.

Grow & Go Sundays (monthly)
November 13
Room 309, Demarest Family Life Center

If you want to prepare for the above SERVEOpps or explore connections between serving the community and following Jesus, join us for Grow & Go!  Once/month we meet for Bible Study focusing on Christ’s heart for the poor, reflection and preparation to serve at our local outreach partners, fellowship, and prayer.  Participants are then equipped to serve on SERVEOpps (i.e., local service opportunities) offered twice monthly.  Parents are also equipped to prepare their children for these service opportunities.  Get in touch with megan@lacanadapc.org or find out more through this video or this sample curriculum.  The class is open to anyone, so join us!

Ongoing and One-on-One Service Opportunities
While Go Journeys are a great introduction to our local outreach partners, real transformation takes place in ongoing relationships with them. Consider making deepr connections by giving an hour or more each week with these opportunities.

Give Resources or In-Kind Donations to Partners
Relationships with our local partners are sustained through the generosity of people like you. Your Faith Missions giving  allows us to make make annual grants to our local and global partners. If you are spring cleaning, you can also consider giving these items  to our local outreach partners.

Become an advocate for one of our local ministry partners.
Each local ministry partner has one or more advocates at LCPC who keep in touch, convey needs to the local team, and encourage others to get involved in the ministry.  We are always looking for new advocates, and we can find you a partner whose ministry work fits with your interests. 

Local Outreach Team
The Local Outreach Team meets once a month to facilitate LCPC’s relationship with its local partners, especially by encouraging members of the LCPC family to engage directly with these local ministries.  You will be part of a team that helps financially and prayerfully support these partners, as well as help LCPC worshippers become Christ’s people among the poor and forgotten.
