We are really glad you are here, and it is important to us that you build some genuine friendships and find a deep sense of belonging. So with that in mind, there are several ways for you and yours to get connected!

Here is a list of some key ministries in our church:

“LifeKidz” Children’s Ministry — Our kids’ ministry is fun, active, and dynamic! If you have little ones up to 12 years old, they will have a blast in our children’s ministry as they learn about Jesus and make new friends! If you have an infant, please take advantage of our safe and clean nursery, staffed on Sunday mornings and Wednesday nights. To volunteer in our kids’ ministry, simply let us know!

Deeper Student Ministries — Jake and Amber lead our youth group of students from ages 12  to 18 years old…and it is awesome! This is the best way for your student to encounter the real-life love of Jesus while also experiencing a deep sense of belonging. We take epic trips all throughout the year, participate in national arts competitions, and grow together in an environment that is accepting, fun, and authentic. Click here for more information!

“Rooted” Young Adults “Rooted” is our young adults ministry led by Mitch and Allison. Established as a place for adults ages 18-40 to connect, build community, produce fruit, and grow closer to Jesus. “Rooted” meets on a monthly basis. See Allison Wilson to get plugged into this ministry! 

Worship Team — Worship is one of our core values, and we place emphasis on responding to the Lord during our time of singing and music. Led by Kim Opdenhoff, our worship team is a committed band of worshipers who are gifted in leading our church into the presence of Jesus. If you are interested in being part of this team, please let us know!

Prayer Partners — Our team of Prayer Partners takes turns praying for the service, during the service. We have found this to be instrumental in changing the climate of our church and helps pave the way for the Holy Spirit to do His work.

L.O.L. (Ladies of Life) — Ladies, get connected to a group of women who love to laugh, love to chat, and love each other! You don’t want to miss our next get-together! We’ll save you a seat! Click here to let us know that you’re interested in being a part!

“Honoring Annabelle” — Our newest ministry at Life Church that we are excited about! In honor of a member of our church who for many years served and helped others in need.
