Local & Global Outreach
We love our community and we think it is important to be involved in making it a better place to live. Connecting with our neighbors enriches our character and grows us in ways we can't even imagine.
Mexico Missions Trip
We usually have multiple trips in a year. If you would like to participate in a Mexico Missions Trip in the future email Pastor Jon.
We have an ongoing relationship with Mexico. Missions teams from LCC have been going to Ensenada, Mexico for years to help build communities and present the Gospel to the people there. We typically have two Mexico mission opportunities per year.
Operation Christmas Child
- Boxes are available in the outreach display area at LCC -
- Drop off filled boxes at LCC by November 14th. -
Instructions are included in each box. We have limited boxes. If you do not see any boxes at the display, you can use a shoebox from home or a shoebox-size plastic tote from a local store.
Operation Christmas Child is a project of Samaritan's Purse, an international relief organization. They ship these simple gifts outside the United States to children affected by war, poverty, natural disaster, famine, and disease, and to children living on Native American reservations in the U.S. We praise God that each year they are able to reach millions of children in some of the most remote areas of the world with an Operation Christmas Child shoebox gift and the message of the Gospel.

At LCC we value our partnership with Habitat for Humanity and caring for families in our community! Through the work of Habitat, thousands of low-income families have found hope in the form of affordable housing. Churches, community groups and others have joined together to successfully tackle a significant social problem—to provide decent housing for all. Since its inception, Habitat for Humanity has built or repaired over 1 million homes, serving more than 5 million people worldwide.
We are proud to be in partnership with Love INC. This organization really shows that sharing love in the name of Christ matters!
