When are your Sunday services?

At 9:00am on Sundays, we offer a variety of classes for adults and children.  Adults’ classes study various topics.  Children’s classes are divided by age.  Our general worship service begins at 10:00am in our auditorium.  During the worship service, children ages 6 weeks to fourth grade have their own classes.  In addition to our Sunday morning services, one of our pastoral staff leads a special family-based worship time, called Solomon’s Porch, at 5:30pm on Sunday nights

 

What should I expect at your Sunday services?

Our Sunday morning classes at 9:00am are held in various classrooms.  These classes usually involve some type of interaction, rather than just teaching in a lecture format.  However, you will not be forced to participate if you are uncomfortable doing so.  These classes end a few minutes before our 10:00am service, to allow time to walk to the auditorium and find a seat.  During the time before the main service, people usually greet one another and chat.  The 10:00am service usually lasts about an hour-and-a-half, and includes worship through song, a greeting time, prayer, announcements, an offering, a sermon based on the Bible, and a time for response.  Bringing a Bible is recommended to help you follow along with the sermon, but it is certainly not required.  At the end of the service, many people spend 10-15 minutes talking, and some go out to lunch together.

 

What about those with disabilities?

We will take every step possible to accommodate adults or children with special needs.  We have reserved parking spaces near our main entrance for those with special needs.  Our main building is made up of only one floor, which allows those with wheelchairs or other physical disabilities to move around the different areas easily.  If you are planning to visit, and you or someone in your family has special needs, please feel free to contact us in advance so we can be sure to make every arrangement needed.

 

What should I wear?

Any type of clothing is fine to wear to our services.  We have people who dress very casually and people who like to dress up.  Probably the majority of the people at our Sunday morning services dress in business casual attire.  However, everyone is welcome to wear whatever they are comfortable in.

Our other services (Sunday night and throughout the week) are casual.

 

Are you part of a particular denomination?

We are a non-denominational church.  Historically, we have had a Baptist tradition.  Recently we have decided not to categorize ourselves as any particular denomination, as we believe it is more important to maintain unity with the global Church as a whole. (See John 17:20-23 and 1 Corinthians 1:10-12.)

 

What does Lighthouse Christian Fellowship do Monday through Saturday?

We believe that life as Christians occurs throughout our daily lives, not just on Sundays.  During the week, we meet as small groups, called “life groups”, for fellowship, study, prayer, service, and more.  These meetings take place in the evenings, usually in group members’ homes.  We also encourage group members to gather during other parts of the week to live ordinary life together.

Also, the youth group meets on Wednesdays from 6:00pm to 8:00pm for fellowship, teaching, and fun.

 

How do I become a member at LCF?

Each quarter, we have a Discovery Class, which give you an opportunity to learn more about Lighthouse Christian Fellowship, officially become a covenant member, and get connected.

 

How do I get connected at LCF?

Our quarterly Discovery Classes are a great way to begin getting connected.  There, we’ll help you find a Sunday 9:00am class, a life group, and more.  These classes are the front door for new people who are looking to get involved.  We also encourage you to look at the various ministries on our website, particularly the life group ministry, for more information and to begin getting involved.

 

How can I serve at LCF?

One of the best ways to serve at LCF is to join a ministry team.  To make this easier, each year, we hold a Ministry Fair, where you can view booths from each team and sign up to serve with one. However, you can join a ministry team at any time of the year. Also, you can regularly view our volunteer opportunities listed on our website, and join us as we serve each other and the community.

 

Can I use your facilities for a wedding or other special event?

To use our facilities for a wedding, the couple must be willing to meet with a pastor at LCF.  For more information on reserving our buildings for weddings or other special events, please contact us. (Our auditorium seats up to about 500 people, and there is no center aisle.)

 

How can I get baptized?

We believe that once a person chooses to follow Jesus, they should express and announce that decision through baptism.  If you or your child have recently decided to follow Jesus, or you decided a long time ago and never followed it up with baptism, we would love to give you the opportunity to be baptized at LCF!  If you would like to be baptized, please contact us.  We have baptisms on a quarterly basis.  However, we are happy to make other arrangements if you would not like to wait until one of the regular baptism opportunities.  Typically, one of our pastors performs the baptism.  If you would like, you can choose which pastor, or if there is someone else you would like to perform the baptism, just let us know!

 

Do you take communion?

We believe it is important to take communion as Jesus commanded,  in order to help remind us of our Lord and what He has done for us.  We take communion in our morning services on the first Sunday of each month.  Life groups are encouraged to also take communion on a regular basis.

 

Do you provide counseling?

At LCF, we are committed to the spiritual and overall health of the individual and the family.  If you need to talk to a pastor, please contact us and we will make arrangements.
