Mission Opportunities - LAC is a church committed to service in the wider world. Each week a group of LAC members volunteers at the HOPE food pantry serving meals to families in need in New Rochelle. LAC participates in the Midnight Run (www.midnightrun.org) on a quarterly basis, traveling in to New York City to offer food and clothing to those living on the streets. Each year, LAC sends a group of people to Nicaragua through Bridges to Community (www.bridgestocommunity.org), to build houses for those in need. These are just some of the many ways you might get involved in mission at LAC.
Memorial Hospitality – The church provides a memorial hospitality service for all LAC members. While the Deacons procure all necessary foods, additional help is needed for set-up, serving, and clean-up at the receptions. This requires no more than 1–2 hours of your time, and is greatly appreciated by all.
Food Connection – Volunteers from the congregation are connected to those members in need of meals for reasons of illness, births or deaths in the family. All that is required of volunteers is to cook an occasional simple meal for one of our families or members in need.
Hope Food Pantry – Larchmont Avenue Church donates and delivers food and household supplies to the HOPE Community Center twice a month. HOPE then distributes these items to needy families in the Westchester community. The church is looking for anyone who can donate a bag of groceries twice during the year. (You will get a reminder, so don’t worry about forgetting the date!)
Parish Care – The Deacons coordinate visits and calls by LAC members to other members of the congregation who are unable to attend worship services or otherwise could benefit from our support. If you are able to visit with these members – in person, or by phone – your help is welcome!
Worship Participation - LAC is a congregation filled with diverse and talented people. From musicians to dancers to artists, we are always looking for ways we can help you offer your gifts to God during our worship services.
