The First Presbyterian Church of Lake Alfred is proud to share its facility with  Life Skills Academy(LSA).  LSA is a private non-profit school NOW serving grades Pre-K thru 12th, with a 501(c) 3 charitable designation, whose mission is to improve the quality of life for children with diverse and special needs by providing education, therapy, and career training.


Life Skills Academy offers a unique educational experience for children whose diverse and special needs are not met at most other schools. At LSA, we take a wholistic approach to education which incorporates education, therapy, and career training.

 

Our students benefit from an collaborative team that meets with the family at least once a year to assess the student’s progress and formulate educational, therapeutic, career, and life goals. With functional independence as the ultimate objective, goals are tailored to each child’s strengths and personal needs.

​Lord, You are the cornerstone to the church you have gathered and built, a necessary foundation. You build and bind your people together, so that the whole is greater than the sum, so we can be greater and do far greater that if we were alone. In you, we have our breath, and vitality of life. In you, we are a small part of the kingdom of God's glory and the work of redemption for all creation. Yet we make ourselves small. We forget to dream. We lose sight and wander in this world. So, forgive us for losing sight of your mission, for letting go of passion, and for ignoring the gift of being your community - the church. Heal us in your Spirit's power that we might be a community of great faith and deep abiding love for all the world to see. We pray these things in the name of the one who is not finished with us yet, Jesus Christ. Amen.  ​

We are a Bible-based church located in the heart of Lake Alfred. Our faith community welcomes you and your family. Join us every Sunday to worship, pray and learn.

   ​Bible Study: The Seven Marks of a Vital Congregation. June 16th: Ecclesial health is about: 1) Why we gather as a church community 2) How we practice being church together. It is about whether our mission, vision, and values match up with the ways we live together. It requires continual attentiveness, awareness, and assessment in asking "are we who we say we are?" And more importantly, "are we who God is calling us to be?" Prayer and discernment are at the heart of ecclesial health! There are several factors to ecclesial health: prayerful discernment, decision-making process, health of pastors, stewardship of budget and resources, clarity in mission and ministries. Ecclesial health is about the people of God having a clear purpose; all people are stake-holders invested in being a part of this community of faith. There are shared core values, a clear mission, and commitment and loyalty to the life we gather in as church. Yet, they also know that this is a living faith. So, they dare to dream and understand that change is inevitable. With ecclesial health, there is joy and gratitude in coming together; people, not programs or properties are valued. People gather and are sent to be Christ's Church.
