LMPC Online
At Lake Murray Presbyterian Church we strive to help people to fully engage in the life of the congregation, whether in person on our physical campus or electronically through our online campus. Nearly all of us now make use of both platforms in some mixture. LMPC is committed to being a church both in person and online.
Join both our 8:30 and 10:30 worship services online!

Welcome to LMPC
  Please join us online Sunday, November 22nd at 1:00 pm for an introduction to the congregation.  Guests, new members and their membership sponsors are encouraged to attend. The meeting will last less that an hour. You can join through zoom, here:
WORSHIP
8:30 and 10:30 Online and in the sanctuary
We ask everyone attending in person to allow us to check your temperature, to wear a mask, and to sit in designated places in the pews (6+ feet apart). Households may sit together. We do not offer a nursery at this time.
 
We are doing all we can to keep you safe during services. We have recently purchases a Covid Fogger that is used after the service in the Sanctuary. We also rotate the Pews used each service so you are not using the same pew that was used prior. 
 
We stream the 10:30 service live on Facebook or YouTube or our website.
