LGCC Outreach

The mission of the Long Grove Community Church Outreach support is to transform lives by showing our love for God, living the word and serving people by serving our neighbors in the way Jesus did, as compassionate servants.  We do this through supporting a variety of missions organizations and teams both locally and internationally, as well as having a monthly serving opportunity for our church, called Serve Saturday.  

Below you will find information about the different organizations we support financially and through prayer.  

Mission Aviation Fellowship

Darryl Cedergren

Mission Aviation Fellowship desires to see isolated people changed by the love of Christ by serving together to bring help, hope, and healing through aviation.

Long grove Community Church supports the Cedergren's as they work with Mission Aviation Fellowship to deliver Bibles, supplies and support to isolated people around the world. Darryl works in the MAF financial department at their headquarters in Idaho, working to secure funds in order to fulfill the mission of MAF.  

We love when the Cedergren's can stop by on a Sunday to share an update on their ministry. Recently they shared an update with us via their newsletter that you can access here.
