“A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another.” John 13:34

It’s our heart to love others as Jesus loves them. To us that sometimes looks like providing pantry items, ministering to our community, helping orphans, standing up for justice and taking care of the needs of the church. We believe that the church is the only organism that exists for the sake of non-members.

If you are looking for a place to serve, please review the LHC volunteer opportunities below and the organizations to the left whom we support in some form.

If you are unsure how you best can serve and be refreshed, please take the, Discover Your Spiritual Gifts Survey. This can give you an idea of your strengths and hopefully point you in the right direction.
