  • 06/02/2021: Sharing in the Sacrament - “For I received from the Lord what I also handed on to you, that the Lord Jesus on the night when he was betrayed took a loaf of bread,  and when he had given thanks, he broke it and said, ‘This is my body that is for you. Do this in remembrance of me’.” (1 Corinthians 11:23-24) This Sunday, we will observe a liturgical ritual that was handed to Paul, who handed it on to his churches, who in turn… Read more
  • 5/27/2021: Gifts for Leadership - “Above all, maintain constant love for one another… Like good stewards of the manifold grace of God, serve one another with whatever gift each of you has received.” (1 Peter 4:8-10)   One of the things I love about the church is that it is governed by people working together in community. In important decisions, everyone has a voice. And, even when it comes to more mundane decisions, the church has always been careful about how choices are made… and… Read more
  • 5/19/2021: Opening Our Doors - “… pray for us as well that God will open to us a door for the word…” (Colossians 4:3) As the world continues to discuss the reopening of all kinds of doors that have been closed and shuttered over the past year, two hopeful signs emerged at LAC this past week. First, the diligent work of a number of our members to have LAC’s longtime community presence recognized on a broader scale finally came to fruition, as the church was… Read more
  • 05/12/2021: Joy and Gratitude - I was glad when they said to me, “Let us go to the house of the Lord!” (Psalm 122:1) There was a great spirit in the sanctuary this past Sunday, as LAC opened the doors of the sanctuary for the first time in a while. As your new pastor, it was a wonderful blessing to experience the warmth and faith of this community’s worship, and I am grateful for the welcome that many of you extended to me after the service.… Read more
  • 05/05/2021: Returning to In-Person Worship - Dear Larchmont Avenue Church, We are thrilled to be able to gather together physically in our beautiful sanctuary once again as we welcome our new Pastor, Rev. Bynum! Our services will continue to be livestreamed via our website, Facebook, and YouTube, but here is an overview of what to expect if you are joining us for the in-person service. The following are procedures we will use as we reopen the sanctuary for worship: out of an abundance of caution, for now… Read more
  • 04/28/2021: LAC’s Mission Partners Need You! - Each year LAC’s Church and Society Committee distributes approximately $25,000 in grants to our Mission Partners, including such organizations as the Community Resource Center, the Larchmont/Mamaroneck Hunger Task Force, At Home on the Sound, the Community Counseling Center, HOPE Community Services and The Sharing Shelf. Unfortunately, for the second year in a row, COVID19 has prevented LAC from holding its annual Rummage Sale, which has historically provided a good share of the funding for these grants. Can you help us… Read more
  • 04/14/2021: LAC’s New Senior Pastor is Rev. Dr. Peter Bynum! - Beloved LAC Community, Last Sunday was a momentous occasion for our church! Our Pastor Nominating Committee led worship and Rev. Dr. Peter Bynum preached a sermon titled "Lifted Up." (You can watch the service here [LINK] if you missed it!) Later that afternoon, we gathered via Zoom for a Congregational Meeting where the Pastor Nominating Committee shared a full report of their search process and answered questions. PNC Co-Chair Thea Beaver introduced Rev. Bynum: You have already “met” our candidate during this… Read more

  • 03/31/2021: On Proclamation & the Arts - Dear LAC, During Advent, we talked a little bit about the arts in worship as a type of proclamation as we prepared for this year’s Dancing Magnificat, and as we look forward to another arts-based service for Good Friday, it seems like a good time for a recap: In our Reformed tradition, proclamation (κήρυγμα / kerygma) is the heart of our worship. We believe that there is something transformative that happens when we gather as a community and read scripture together. The… Read more
  • 03/24/2021: COVID-19 Update - Dear LAC, Spring is in the air! More and more folks within our community are receiving their COVID-19 vaccinations, and schools are preparing for fully in-person instruction. What does this mean for Larchmont Avenue Church? Are we ready to return to worshiping in-person? The short answer: not yet. Our Elders on Session will continue to carefully discern and to prepare in order to make the transition from pre-recorded to livestreamed in-person services as smooth as possible. LAC's worship will continue to… Read more
