Expect to find a lot of imperfect people who worship a perfect God. Expect to open the Bible, sing, laugh and get serious.
Expect to be relaxed, without worrying what others will think of you, or how you are dressed.
WHAT TIME SHOULD I ARRIVE

WHAT WILL HAPPEN
Our services are very dynamic, but this a brief description of what happens if you are thinking of visiting.
One of the LPM Church volunteers welcomes everyone and gives a small prayer of thanks to God for usbeing together again as a family to worship him. Our band then leads us in a time of praise and worship.
Our band then leads us in a time of praise and worship. The lyrics of the songs are projected on a screen to help you, you can remain standing or sitting as you feel more comfortable.
After we worship God, there are some announcements about things that are happening in the life of the church.
Then, one of the leaders will bring a message based on the Bible lasting around 40 minutes. The purpose of the message is to understand the Father's heart and his will for us, to be filled with the Holy Spirit, and to learn to live like Jesus, understanding the Kingdom of God.
After the message as an act of prayer and thanksgiving we have a moment to collect offerings and tithes,something that you are not obliged to participate in, but if you feel this desire you can use the envelope you received at the entrance.
