Articles of faith

Does your church have a brief news announcement?  “Articles of Faith” will be appearing at the end of the week on WNLP. Please submit your church’s news brief for the upcoming weekend at wnlp@whatsnewlaporte.com.

The Presbyterian Church of La Porte

On June 14, the second Sunday of Pentecost, Rev. Peggy Huston’s sermon title is “Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner,” based on Matt. 9:9-13. Huston says watching the classic and relevant 1967 film will give a good background for her sermon, which will be live on Facebook, laportepresbyterianchurch, at 9:30 a.m. At 11:30 a.m. there will be a church parking lot service at 307 Kingsbury Ave., followed by a carillon concert by John Gouwens. People will listen to the sermon and concert from their cars and be able to wave greetings to each other.

The mission team reports that it continues to fill the Center Township Trustee cabinets with food items and 180-plus children’s books have been donated to Dunebrook.

La Porte New Church

While the La Porte New Church, located at the corner of Indiana and Maple Avenues, is closed during this cautious Covid-19 time, Sunday services are being held via Zoom online at 10 a.m. All are welcome.

Contact Rev. Kit Billings via email (  revkit123@gmail.com) or phone/text (219-480-4682) to receive the Zoom invitation.
Rev. Billings is available by appointment for phone or online meetings for information on grief support, weddings, or anything else related to the New Church.
St. Paul’s Episcopal Church
St. Paul’s continues to offer only one online service at this point, a 9 a.m. morning prayer service on Thursdays via the church’s Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/stpaullaporte).
In addition the judicatory, the Episcopal Diocese of Northern Indiana, offers four online services daily,  Monday through Saturday, in addition to a Sunday morning service.  Those services can be found at https://ednin.org/virtual-worship-schedule

“As time  continues without in-person services, we may decide to add more locally.  Until then we are relying on our Diocese, and other parish, to share their resources and creativity,” said Mother Michelle Walker, the priest at St. Paul’s.
