LVPC Mission

The Mission Committee is dedicated to providing outreach and support to our community, near and far, in all its dimensions.

The Giving Fair

Each November, the Mission Committee hosts the Giving Fair (formerly known as the Alternative Gift Fair). This provides an opportunity for holiday shoppers to purchase symbolic gifts for friends and family through donations to local, regional, national, and international charities.

Visit The Giving Fair page to learn much more about this exciting opportunity.

Local Action Team

Our Local Action Team is a group of adults and children who want to give back by helping others in our community. We visit the homes of people in our community to help with small chores or projects that they cannot do because of illness or other incapacity. We help with chores such as snow and ice removal, interior painting, grocery shopping, leaf raking, or just spend some time with someone who is unable to get out and about. If you would like our Local Action Team to visit you, please contact the church office or Pastor Chad. We are here to help!
