ABOUT US

We are an open book. We want to be as transparent as a church as possible. We are very open with our goals and ambitions through Christ. Feel free to ask us anything you need.


It is our hope that this page answers three basic questions. We want to make sure that you understand the personality of the church. We love God, love people, make disciples, and would love for you to join us. 

  • Who is involved in working with this church?

  • What does this church stand for?

  • What are people saying about this church?



WHY WE EXIST

We exist for three main reasons that we feel very strongly about. We believe that focusing on these three things is what God calls for us to do. We trust in the Lord and follow His will. 


LOVE GOD

The first and greatest command is to love God with all of our heart, soul, strength, and mind. We strive to keep "the main thing the main thing" and focus on our personal relationship with God through a very real and personal relationship with Jesus. Healthy biblical teaching and preaching help to nurture that focus here at lfm church along with purposeful, intentional, and engaging services.

LOVE PEOPLE

The second greatest command is similar to the first but involves our relationship with those around us. As we learn to love God more and more each day, we learn how to love the people around us too. We know that love is shown through action as well as speech, so we do our best to promote an atmosphere of love and acceptance and seek every opportunity to serve our communities.

MAKE DISCIPLES

We not only want to be touching the lives of people around us, but want to encourage and teach others to do the same. We know that one person, spreading the Good News of what Jesus has done is amazing, but when many people are doing the same thing the impact will be much greater. We want to see many lives transformed for Christ and we do that by modeling, encouraging, and training people in how to be a follower or "disciple" of Jesus.


BE A COMMUNITY WHERE GOD'S LOVE WINS

AND LIVES ARE TRANSFORMED.


OUR TEAM

John Price, Lead Pastor

Pastor John has been in full time pastoral ministry since 1988 including 6 years as a staff pastor specializing in people connections. “My call, experiences, and giftings have developed in me a passion to help people discover the fullness of God’s personalized, creative design and to weave that design into the fabric of the body of Christ – the church.  It is only as both of these elements come together that the power of the presence of Jesus in the world is fulfilled!”

Mike Anderson, Associate Pastor

Pastor Mike Anderson received his calling into pastoral ministry while an attendee of lfm church. He and his wife Cindy have been ministering in this congregation for over

25 years. Pastor Mike currently serves as a bi-vocational Associate Pastor and strives to make sure that everyone

who walks through these doors feels welcome. He wants all people to have an inviting and positive experience and to  know that they belong here. In his free time he enjoys hanging out with his three grown children and many cherished grandchildren.

 

Trisha Crotteau, Children/Youth Leader


Trisha joined us in 2018 and has worked in Youth and Children's ministry for over 20 years.  Trisha & her husband have three children that keep them busy! Her positive, encouraging personality keeps the ministry running along smoothly.  She is quick to raise people to the next level of leadership and is always happy to help others. She always has encouragement as she leads the group into a Christ-Centered life. We are happy to say that Trisha & her family call lfmchurch their home.


TESTIMONIALS

"I love LFM! When a friend saw that I began reading the Bible and coming to faith in Jesus, he invited me to come to LFM Church. At first I was apprehensive due to negative preconceived notions I had about Church. But when I came, I experienced the love of Jesus in a community of believers, forever changing my life as well as my notion of 'Church.' I found it easy to build new relationships within the congregation and to find a place to participate in the ministry. LFM is an excellent place for anyone, regardless of class or ethnicity, to be engaged with God and find purpose in something bigger than themselves."
