The missions programs at Lake Murray Presbyterian shares the love of Jesus Christ in tangible ways. We have active mission partnerships locally, regionally, and internationally.

THE JUSTIN PEPPER FOUNDATION was established in October of 2007 in memory of Justin Pepper, an 11-year old member at LMPC to encourage youth to follow in his footsteps and to give back to their community through acts of philanthropy and volunteerism.  The Justin Thomas Gustav Pepper Memorial Scholarships provides $1,000 to local students for ongoing education.
