God calls believers to impact their community, locally and globally. WE BELIEVE God has uniquely gifted each person to serve inside and outside the walls of the church building. in addition to supporting and sending out missionaries,
Imagine what our families, church, and community would be like if we all took the time to do what God uniquely designed each of us to do in serving others. The ripple effect of each person making their unique contribution would result in a revolution of Christ's love being felt in tangible, life-changing ways. Whether you have lots of time to volunteer each week or only a few hours every once in a while, prayerfully consider how you could be used by God to make a difference for His kingdom!
SHORT-TERM MISSIONS OPPORTUNITIES
Honduras- We send a team of 15-20 people each year for a one week trip to serve with the ministry of El Ayudante outside of the colonial city of Comayagua in west central Honduras. The mission team provides medical, dental and optical care to an agricultural community of some 15,000 people while also sharing with them the gospel of Jesus Christ. In addition to the medical care, teams install water filter systems, build latrines, pour cement floors in local homes in the community and provide bible classes for children in the local schools. Each trip touches the lives of hundreds of Hondurans with many coming to faith in Jesus Christ and being encouraged in their spiritual journey.
Albania- LGCC has recently partnered with a church planting ministry in Albania with intentions of sending future teams to help with the Gospel work there.
Living Grace Community Church is committed to carrying out the Great Commission to be witnesses for Jesus Christ throughout the world. Approximately 12 cents of every dollar given to Living Grace goes to Missions outside our community. In 2012 Living Grace invested almost $90,000 in helping fulfill Christ's command in areas outside our own community ('to the ends of the earth').
LGCC supported missionaries serve in more than 12 countries around the world. In addition to the missionaries we support, we are also involved in a variety of short term mission experiences designed to expose our people to cross-cultural ministry and to use their gifts and skills to touch the lives of others with the love of Christ and the good news of the Gospel.
