WHAT TO EXPECT
When you walk into Living Word Fellowship Church for the first time, you will see some warm friendly faces greeting you at the door. We desire that you feel welcome, but you won’t feel any pressure to sign up or commit yourself to anything. We want you to feel free to check us out and determine whether we might be the place for you (and your family).
That is why we want you to take things at a pace that is right for you. You are invited and welcome to attend our adult Bible fellowships and our youth and children’s classes as a visitor.
Just look through the website for the times and the topics of these classes. If you desire just to talk or have questions, there are some of us after Sunday’s service just hanging around the Hospitality Table in the sanctuary. We would be happy to assist you in anyway we can.
We strive to consistently teach the Word of God in a way that allows it to speak for itself, exposing you to its truths and encouraging you to dig deeper beyond our Sunday morning service.
We believe the Word of God and all its truths give us the answers pertaining to living this life in honor of our Lord. Our pastors spend much of their time studying the Word of God preparing to give the meaning that God intended in each passage, then connecting its meaning to our lives in the 21st century.
We usually go through a book of the Bible preaching verse by verse, so we can understand the whole counsel of God’s Word. We will also spend several weeks in a teaching series building a biblical perspective on certain topics.
We believe that music is an important tool that helps us ascribe worth to God. It also prepares us to listen to Him as we study the Word. Christian songwriters of every generation have added stylistic and literary distinctives to church music, unified in their worship of God. As a result, a typical Sunday includes modern worship songs and some of the best historical works of the church.
Individual giving is a form of worship; it should be done joyously, freely, generously and without external compulsion. Consequently, we take no offerings during our service; instead we provide offering boxes at various locations so that all who desire to worship God through giving can do so freely and privately.
We do not want to hinder spiritual growth by resorting to man-made fundraising techniques that place people under pressure to give or create false guilt. Rather, we desire to provide everyone with the opportunity to give voluntarily.
TAKE THINGS AT YOUR PACE
For some, LWF is a spiritual oasis which provides an opportunity to catch one’s breath and process what you’ve been going through during the previous phase of your life.
We are not indifferent to your unique need, and we are excited you’re here, and we welcome you, but we’ll only step into your world if we’re invited.
We are committed to ministering to those whom God sends to us. If permitted, we will help you discover your place here and the life changing experience of knowing Jesus Christ in a personal way.
