LAPC History and Legacy 

LAPC History is one of intrepid witness on behalf of the great social questions of past generations as well as our own: abolition, women's equality, sexual orientation, peacemaking, economic justice, civil rights, and solidarity with the marginalized.


This history is not a single narrative but is rather a compilation of many stories lived by many different people, told with faith and affection by the 15,000 men and women who have been members of this congregation since 1857. 

Our foremothers and forefathers have bestowed on us a rich heritage of faithful witness. Our descendants will likewise be looking back at us to see how we have responded to our calling and "made history" in the early twenty-first century. We are a living church still making history in our own day and age.
