Life Church Value: A Missional Community
We exist not for ourselves but to transform the world in service to others.
In addition to our events, groups, and the activity of our church community, we are engaged in specific projects and strategic partnerships in service to our local area. These are just some of the local mission projects we are currently engaged with and they all represent great opportunities for you to get involved in serving your community.
