LPCA had its Community service day on Wednesday, April 25, 2018, and helped to make a difference to local missions in the Mooresville area. Parents and students volunteered their time to help Serenity House, Mooresville Pregnancy Center, Power Cross ministries, Hope of Mooresville, Mooresville Christian Mission.
Families at Mooresville Christian Mission helped out in the warehouse sorting donations and helped to prepare them for the families that would be coming to get food.
Serenity House was blessed with students and parents who cleaned the house from the baseboards to the ceilings. They even took the time to visit with a resident, Pat, who welcomed them into the house. Cheryl, the director of the house, shared that she was impressed with how hard the girls worked, how respectful they were, and how they did anything asked without complaints. Serenity House has many ways to volunteer and to find out more you can check out their website http://carolinacomfortcoalition.org
Students rolled up their sleeves and rolled 500 brochures for Mooresville Pregnancy center. These brochures will be placed in baby bottles for the center’s annual baby bottle boomerang to help raise funds in order to support and let women know they are not alone.
Power Cross Ministries in Statesville mission is “To spread the life-changing word of Christ into our community, reaching out to young men and their families through athletics, tutoring, and character-building opportunities. To provide a ‘gang’ of Christian brothers with whom to walk through life. To teach young men how to use the tools which they have been blessed with to build and glorify the kingdom of God.” Our families on Wednesday morning helped prepare food for the Identity rally that was going on all that week. Wednesday night LPCA showed up again to help prepare, serve and clean up from over 800 meals that were served to people who came to the rally. Power Cross has opened a second location in Salisbury this past year. To learn more about this organization and how you can volunteer to check them out at https://www.powercross.org
Hope Home of Mooresville, aka Hope of Mooresville, was blown away by the generous donations of our families. Our families donated and helped bag over 400 snack bags for homeless students who are in Mooresville Graded Schools and Iredell-Statesville schools. This will provide the students at least two snacks a day until the end of the school year. HOM provides emergency supportive housing for the homeless women & children. Year-round resources such as job training, mentoring, financial counselling, mental & physical health assistance, substance abuse referrals and education.

Thank you to everyone that took time out of their day to give back and help serve. These organizations rely on donations and volunteers to help them be able to help the community with their services. When we donate our time, we are obedient to be his heart, be his hands, and be his voice.
