  • 12/02/2020: Share Holiday Cheer! - Dear LAC Community, It is the time of year where we experience the joy of Advent, the time leading up to Christmas day. For many this year, it will be difficult to feel this joy. The holiday season can be a challenging time of year for anyone, but especially those who are in need. The stress of the season mixed with financial woes can be a lot for anyone to handle. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the number of families who are struggling… Read more
  • 11/25/2020: Virtual Advent Workshop - Greetings LAC Family, Can you believe Thanksgiving is tomorrow? I literally bought my turkey on Monday night and am very grateful that it was not frozen!

It is my hope that you all are finding meaningful ways to continue to celebrate and continue traditions. It is in that spirit that I hope you will be… Read more
  • 11/18/2020: Grateful for (Re)Discovery - Oh, feed me this day, Holy Spirt, with the fragrance of the fields and the freshness of the oceans which you have made; and help me to hear and to hold in all dearness those exacting and wonderful words of our Lord Christ Jesus, saying: Follow me. Excerpted from "Six Recognitions of the Lord" by Mary Oliver, Devotions, Penguin Press, 2017, pp. 125-128 Dear LAC Community, Every year about this time when jackets become less optional and there are more… Read more
  • 11/11/2020: Hunger & Homelessness Awareness Week - Dear LAC Community, As the holidays approach, people take time to consider the many blessings they have in their lives. Many people choose to donate some of their time, attention and resources to others who are the victims of hunger and homelessness in our Westchester County community. As in past years, the Church and Society Committee of LAC urges all members to make a generous donation to our special Thanksgiving offering which will support our Mission Partners who work tirelessly to reduce and eliminate hunger in Westchester… Read more
  • 10/4/2020: Space for Prayer and Reflection - Dear LAC Community, As we move into this day after the election, I am sure there are still so many unanswered questions. This election season particularly has been very long and perhaps a little bit fraught. In light of this, we will have the LAC sanctuary open today from noon - 6:00 p.m. ( and virtually for those who would prefer) for a time of prayer, reflection, or just a little chat. Please email me at or send a text message to (240)899-8386… Read more
  • 10/28/2020: Worship–An Anchor for Months Ahead - Dear Fellow Congregants,   When I was a child, I went with my mother to a refinisher to have a chair repaired. Walking in the door the repairman told my mother she looked familiar and asked her where she lived. She said, "I am from Union." He said, "I thought I had seen you before, I went to church there." My mother asked (much to my total embarrassment), "Why didn't you come back?" His reply? "I guess I got into… Read more
  • 10/22/2020: Goodbye with Gratitude - Dear LAC family: It has been an honor to serve as your interim Pastor these last two years. This Sunday will be my last one preaching to you in worship. My interim contract comes to a close at month's end. As I announced last week, I will be joining the Presbyterian Church of Chatham Township on November 15th as their installed Sr. Pastor/Head of Staff.

  • 10/15/2020: A Plan for the Weeks Ahead - Dear LAC family: While we celebrate with Rev. Clémot the joyful news of her installed call to a church in Chatham, we now face the challenge of becoming a church without a Pastor at month's end. It is always hard to say goodbye to our pastoral leaders, but harder still to face a hiatus between pastors. Nevertheless, we will manage. After consulting with Presbytery leadership and other pastors, we have developed a plan to ensure the smooth continuation of our… Read more
  • 10/13/2020: Thank You, LAC! - Dear LAC Family: It has been a privilege and a pleasure to serve as your interim minister for these past two years. I have been honored to work beside you in ministry, lead you in worship, and dream with you about the future of LAC.
