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 November. 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!

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.
