A Big Front Porch
At the Presbyterian Church of Lawrenceville, we have a big front porch. What we mean is this: the front porch is the place where members of a household meet and connect, and is also the place between the house and the street where those on the outside are invited in. Our metaphorical “front porch” is the means by which we connect with each other, and invite new people into our fellowship.
There are a number of ways we connect and invite new people in.
Fellowship Groups are small groups of 15-20 members that enable members to grow spiritually through shared experiences of fellowship, support and connecting faith to real life. Primarily for members, they are also the best way for people to get to know each other, and our community, deeply.
We have a variety of other small groups that are the means by which people connect to each other, and invite new folks into our fellowship. Here are just a few:
- Adult Choir, which meets Thursday evenings.
- Create and Relate, a group that meets Monday at 10 to do needlework – and connect with each other.
- We have a Men’s Group and a Women’s Group
- In addition, we have frequent service groups that go out into the community – and into the world – for the purpose of service.
- Committees – hey, every organization has to have them. To roll up your sleeves and join in the work is often how we get to know each other too.
