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?


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. 


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.


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.


Not only do we want to be reaching out into the lives of the people around us, we 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.

Mike Anderson

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


Trisha joined us in 2018 as our Children's and Youth Ministry Leader 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.


Deena Ackley


You know how there is often one person who holds an organization together

and without whom the place would fall apart?  That's the role the church administrator Deena Ackley plays.  Apart from God, she is the glue that holds the church's organization structure together.  Deena joined the team at lfm church in 2015 and has been a tremendous asset to the ministry.  She is married and has two grown sons.  If you contact the church through phone

or email she is probably the one you will find yourself talking to.  Deena has

many skills and has decided to be gracious enough to share them with lfm church. 


"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."
