Serve LocallyLet's MOBILIZE as God's church in our community.
SERVE LOCALLY – MOBILIZE
Mobilizing the church towards three major initiatives:
hunger – homes – hospitality
There are moments in life in which a cause penetrates the hearts of a group and they mobilize all that they are and have to further that mission. God has led LCC to this place – a place where He has put a significant vision in front of us. This vision will only come to fruition if all of us – the entire body of Christ – are mobilized.
To be a Jesus-centered community on mission in eastern Polk County, we will join in God in alleviating hunger, in creating Jesus-centered community in our neighborhoods, and practicing Jesus-centered hospitality seven-days a week in our facilities.
