Love Does

Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.

Welcome to Lafayette-Orinda Presbyterian Church

Love Does

Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.

-Matthew 25:40, NIV

One of the most important things that we can do as Christians is to demonstrate God’s love for the world, and our community.  Love Does is LOPC’s aptly named program that provides opportunities to serve locally and globally and show our love to those that are in need. Serving others is demonstrable way to say we care for them and love them as Christ encourages us to do.  

LOPC encourages individuals of all ages and capabilities to find ways to serve intergenerationally together. Throughout the year our love does program offers monthly opportunities to serve both on-campus and locally off-site throughout Contra Costa and the neighboring counties of Solano and Alameda counties.

Ongoing Opportunities

MCC Food Barrels

Monument Crisis Center continues to be an important source of food for low income and at-risk individuals and families in Contra Costa County. Food distribution is at the heart of their program. The Center supplies food to approximately 2,200 different households, serving over 8,000 individuals, while taking in over 25,000 lbs. of food in donations – every month. In order to keep up with demand, MCC is continuing to ask for donations of non-perishable food items, and especially in demand are cereal, peanut butter, beans, rice and pasta. As you are doing your weekly shopping, please be mindful of the need that exists for food and buy an extra item(s) for MCC and place it in one of the LOPC barrels. It can be one item, but collectively it can make a difference in the lives of those that need it. Food can be placed in barrels located outside the Oak Room any time of day, 7 days a week.
