Mission Statement

Transforming lives by showing our love for God, living the Word and by serving our neighbors in the way Jesus did, as compassionate servants.

We are continuing with our program of utilizing touchpoints for each individual ministry LGCC is supporting. 

Program highlights include:

1. The LGCC outreach program is reaching all parts of the world, including locally.

2. The touch points for each ministry have been supporting their ministries with prayer and other needs.

3. We’ve had opportunities on a regular basis to hear from ministries that we are supporting.

4. We continue to encourage small groups to organize and to lead some of our church wide efforts.
