Church LifeServing Others
Our team of deacons display God’s love by caring for members of church and the wider Lapeer community by visiting the sick, writing letters, helping people in financial or spiritual crisis, supporting church fellowship, and more. If you would like to refer someone to the deacons for support, please contact a member of their referral committee: Ken Dick, Keith Byard, or Wendy Byard.
Caring for the Needy of Lapeer
Our church hosts a soup kitchen every Thursday, where the hungry of Lapeer can receive a warm meal between 4pm and 5pm, with volunteers gathering to cook meals around 2pm. During the winter, our church hosts a mobile homeless shelter organized by The Refuge for two weeks, where guests receive dinner, breakfast, and a warm place to sleep during the colder months. Volunteers are always welcome to join us in ministry in either program. We also support Love INC Lapeer and in partnership with them provide emergency relief to people struggling financially in our community. Finally, we take up a 2 Coins a Meal offering on the last Sunday of each month to raises funds for local and national hunger relief efforts.
Our church supports missions around the world through the work of our denomination. In particular, we sponsor Josh Heikkila in his missionary work supporting churches and mission partners across West Africa. We also collect special offerings around major church holidays, from Christian work towards world peace to caring for both retired and aspiring clergy to changing the lives of at-risk youth. Our congregation also sponsors individual missions projects as needs arise.
