Gathering Time

Sundays at the 10AM

Grab a cup of coffee and a cookie in the Gathering Place between the Sunday morning worship services and enjoy some good conversation each week. The Gathering Time is one of the most important hours of the week at The Presbyterian Church of La Porte. Our crowd likes to connect, catch up on all the local news, swap family stories and make new friends. People from the first service stay late to chat. People from the second service come early so the church community has a chance to be together. Parents often let their children run outside to our newly built playground. We have swings, slides, climbers, and play houses! The area is fenced and can be easily viewed from the Gathering Place. Be sure to join us for a relaxed visit among friends in a warm space overlooking the beauty of God’s creation.

Progressive Dinner

Progessive Dinner has a long happy tradition in The Presbyterian Church of La Porte as an annual event. The dinner menu is established and divided up among the participants. Appetizers and desserts are shared as a large group while dinner is served in groups of eight. This is an adult only event as the adults do partake in wine with dinner.

Men's Breakfast

8AM Second Saturday of the Month

The men of the church and friends gather together on the second Saturday of the month at 8 AM to share some time and fellowship over their favorite meal. Men's Breakfast does not meet in July.

Presbyterian Women

9AM Third Thursday of the Month

The Presbyterian Women enjoy tea and coffee cake and engage in Bible study. They usually follow an excellent Bible study guide provided by the PCUSA called Horizon's Women's Bible Study. The Presbyterian Women also have a selection of Mission causes they support through annual fundraisers, the most important of which is the twice yearly Garage Sale.
