We offer numerous opportunities to get to know people who are interested in the same things that interest you. Some of these are simply to have fun or enjoy a good meal together. Others include elements of study or service. Please explore and try one out.
The end of summer brings new students to Lexington, giving us that opportunity once again to invite these young people into our church community and to get to know some of them personally. Each year we offer the Adopt-a-Student program to make them feel at home in Lexington.
Campus Ministry offers a coffee fellowship each Sunday at 10:30am before the 11:00AM service.
This ministry provides exam care packages for local students and cards and gift certificates to LPC youth away at college.
Fellowship featuring coffee during the cold months, lemonade during the warm months, and cookies all year follows the 11:00am service (10:00am in summer). We usually meet in Brady Chapel, but sometimes we gather in the garden between the sanctuary and Murray Hall.
In-home fellowship provides an opportunity to nurture a sense of community and belonging among our adult members. We meet monthly in groups of 12 or 15 people October through May, in the homes of group members. Together we enjoy a potluck meal and lots of good fellowship.
A simple curriculum is provided by one of your pastors that becomes the spring-board for conversation after sharing a bountiful meal. The aim of House Church is to build the community. It is not meant to be a Bible study or an encounter group. It is meant to be a time for the members of this congregation to gather to get to know one another better. In so many ways the stories shared at House Church gatherings help us all grow in our faith.
The Saturday Morning Men's Fellowship Group meets in Dunlap-1, the former Museum Room, at 7:30am the second Saturday of the month from September to May. Meetings last one hour, and include breakfast (provided on a rotation basis by each member) and a discussion of an assigned reading. Adult men of all ages are welcome.
The group is discussing Life Together by Dietrich Bonhoeffer.

Our purpose is stated as: Forgiven and freed by God in Jesus Christ, we commit ourselves: to nurture our faith through prayer and Bible study, to support the mission of the church worldwide, to work for justice and peace, and to build an inclusive, caring community of women that strengthens the Presbyterian Church (USA) and witnesses to the promise of God's kingdom.
Fellowship dinnerFood, fun and fellowship. If you like any of these things, then come to church on Thursdays at 5:45 p.m. for a prepared dinner and short program. We will have a child-friendly menu for those under 12. The charge for the meal is $6 per person or $16 for a family. Please sign up in the Thantastic Thursdays book outside of the Main Office. Once a month we offer Sunday brunch after the 11:00 service instead of a Thursday evening event.
We offer Infant through Toddler care during the program part of Thantastic Thursday evenings with pre-registration. We will have a "homework room" for older children if desired. If you would like to volunteer to oversee one of these areas for a Thursday evening then please contact Sarah Hill gro.s1503382547erpxe1503382547l@lli1503382547hs1503382547.
If you have a couple hours a month, please consider helping with the Thantastic Thursday meals. We need help with preparation (Wednesday 10-2), set-up (Thursday 12-3 and 3-6), and clean up (Thursday 6-8:30 pm). If you can just take one day a month and we spread the work out among many of us, it will be a sustainable ministry. We are hoping that this program will help reconnect many of our own members, attract young families and others from the community. There are several sign-up sheets around the church or speak to Macy Coffey about how you can serve the church in this program.
