Ladies Retreat

Several of our church women leave today for a two-day retreat of the Central Georgia Presbytery Women. The retreat is being held at Houston Lake Presbyterian Church in Kathleen, GA. Sara Ivill is the speaker. Keep the ladies in prayer for traveling mercies and for blessing on their time together.

And pray for the husbands who somehow have to take care of themselves for two days!

Community Bible Study

It is good to see the Community Bible Study ladies back for the fall. More than 100 women in and around the lake community meet weekly from fall through spring to study God's Word, and LOPC is blessed to provide the location for them to meet. To learn more about this ministry, check out their website at

New Pathway Addition

The path from the kitchen to the pavilion has had a nice pavement except for the small space between the sidewalk and wooden stairs. Thanks to Arn Ditmar and Dick Forrester that space can now be crossed without concern for wet and muddy conditions. Arn served as chief designer, project manager, purchasing specialist and hands-on construction supervisor.  Dick filled the common-laborer/photographer/correspondent roles.
