The Lao people were among some of the first official refugees to come to the United States. It is estimated that 800,000 Lao people fled Laos following the Communist uprisings of Southeast Asia in the 1970s. Most Americans are more familiar with the Vietnam War, but the Lao people fled a similar conflict in their own nation around the same time. PCPC has a special relationship with the Lao community in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area, going back to the early 1980s. We call our ministry to these friends Lao Presbyterian Fellowship (LPF). Through LPF, we seek to serve the Lao people in the name of Jesus through discipleship, Christian fellowship and cultural events for the broader Lao community.
LPF meets every Sunday at 9:30 am in the Sanctuary for the main PCPC Service with live interpretation. Here is the LPF schedule on Sundays at PCPC:
9:30 - PCPC Worship Service with live Lao Translation
10:45- Coffee and fellowship in LPF room (LPF Room in Oak Lawn West building)
11:30 - LPF Bible Study
