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.
Operation Christmas Child
- We will be receiving our boxes by the end of September -
- Box Due Date - November 17 -
Instructions are included in each box. Pick and drop off the boxes at church in the lobby by the Justice 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.
His Kids Orphan Ministry
His Kids Orphan Ministry is a three faceted ministry focusing on fundraising for grants given to families who are adding to their family through adoption, supporting and educating families who are in contact with children from hard places and contributing to global orphan care.

Anyone who lives in Douglas County is able to attend.
Habitat for Humanity
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! Bringing people in this community together to strive for unity, compassion, kindness, and love are just a few of the ways to describe the heart of what they do. It is an honor to serve alongside them.
