Lake Grove Presbyterian hosting interfaith events
Lake Grove Presbyterian Church invites members of the community to join them for two events which are intended to build bridges to new friendships and deeper understanding of people around the world.
The first event, titled Love Your Neighbor, features leaders from LGPC and Masjid As-Sabre Mosque sharing information about what Muslims and Christians believe. Cost is $5, and a lunch of Middle Eastern cuisine will be served. Registration is required. Call the church at 503-646-5656 to register. Scholarships are available.
The second event will take place from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Oct. 20 in the church fellowship hall. Representatives from the church's many mission partners will be present to share information about the programs. This is an opportunity to learn about ministry opportunities available "across the street and around the world."
To learn more about either program call the church at 503-636-5656. LGPC is located at 4040 Sunset Drive in Lake Oswego.
