LP Presbyterian offers worship service options

This Sunday The Presbyterian Church of La Porte will offer different ways to participate in worship services. Parishioners may choose to worship on Zoom, on a landline or cell phone, on Facebook live streamed, or in their cars at the church parking lot, 307 Kingsbury Ave.

With COVID-19 cases rising, there will be no in-person worship Sunday.

For either service via Zoom on a tablet or computer, everyone will be able to see each other as a congregation and talk together after worship for an online “coffee hour.” 

Contemporary Cross Connection service is at 9:30 a.m. Traditional worship is at 11:30 a.m. For both services, another option is the parking lot service; tune to radio station 89.1 FM. The bulletin and hymn for traditional worship are available on the church website at

Both services may be viewed on Facebook at presbyterianchurchoflaporte.

Carillonneur John Gouwens will perform a carillon concert after the 11:30 a.m. parking lot service.
