MINISTRIES

Below we have a list of the ministries that we offer here at lfm church. We want you to feel as comfortable as possible when joining one of our ministry programs. We believe that engaging in fellowship is a very important tool when growing to be more like Jesus. The encouragment of others is a powerful thing.


Missions

Our mission is to give as Christ gave. As He gave His life, let us give our resources, time, and talents so others can live abundantly and come to know Christ as their Lord and Savior. We support local mission projects and also global missionary work through our Free Methodist Denomination. Consider giving to these mission projects or supporting a child monthly. Visit the denominational missions website for more information.

Samaritan's Purse

Samaritan's Purse is an evangelical Christian humanitarian aid organization that provides help to people in physical need as a key part of Christian missionary work. Our church helps this cause through Operation Christmas Child. We put together shoeboxes of needed items for children around the world and ship them out in October. For more information about this ministry please visit their website.

Grief Share

Grief Share is a ministry offering online support, books, and local groups to help you through a difficult time of grief and loss. More information about this fantastic ministry of support and the locations of local groups can be found through the ministry's website.

Life Groups

Life Groups are communities of believers that do life together. We are all at different places in our journey with Christ, but all share one goal: following Jesus wholeheartedly. Our life groups meet from September-May. These groups are open too all adults and meet in various locations. We encourage you to get plugged in to one today!

"2911" Youth Ministry

Our Youth Group is a ministry that is designed specifically for students in grades 6-12 and focuses primarily on discipleship, fellowship, and fun. This is a place where students can be challenged to live out their Godly calling on this earth and learn how to love and serve Jesus and make a difference for Him. This group meets weekly on Sunday evenings from 5-7pm during the school year but will be meeting once a month during the summer months (June, July, August). Please get in touch with the church office for more information concerning upcoming dates/times for gatherings.

Growth Groups

Growth Groups are adult and children's classes that meet following our Sunday morning service and begin at 11:30am. We currently offer a few different adult Bible study groups as well as some expanded fellowship time through our Gathering Grounds coffee and community group. We also provide classes for children where they can learn more about Jesus in a small group setting and have concepts and ideas explained to them at their level. Get connected with a class and keep growing in your relationship with others and with God.

So Long Summer

The So Long Summer Festival is a community event that we put on in order to provide a fun and safe place for families to enjoy some "together" time. We have food brought in from Famous Dave's BBQ, a giant climbing wall, a car show with prizes, bounce houses, facepainting, a kid zone, and much more. This year's SLS Festival will be taking place on August 25th, 2018. This ministry is made possible by generous donations from our local businesses and from individual supporters. If you can help with this event in any way, please contact RKulinec@gmail.com.

Men's Ministry

Our Men's Ministry creates opportunity for fellowship and service through different gatherings throughout the year.

Doing work projects around the church grounds and at local missions helps them keep a servant's attitude at the center of their hearts.

Children's Ministry

The Children's Ministry here at lfm church introduces infants and children through 5th grade to the Word of God through interactive Biblical teaching and preaching, games, music, crafts, small groups, and fun events/gatherings. One of the ways we currently minister to our children is through KID CENTRAL, which is a purposeful and hands-on service designed specifically for students in Preschool-5th grade and takes place once a month during our Sunday morning service. We also have age-specific classes during our Growth Groups at 11:30am.

Upward Sports

Here at lfm church we do our best to provide ministry to the community wherever we are able. Being a part of UPWARD sports and specifically providing a place for students to be involved with UPWARD basketball and cheerleading is one of the ways we do that. We provide Upward Basketball for students in grades 7-12 and cheerleading for grades K-5. We will be registering for the 2019 Upward season in November.
