Sunday Gatherings

Sunday Gatherings

We’re grateful to be able to gather for worship in these challenging times. If you plan to join us in person, please follow our LHC COVID-19 Gathering Plan (PDF) including keeping space between family groups and wearing a face covering while inside the YMCA unless seated 6 feet from others (except small children and those who are not able because of health or conscience). Please refer to our Gathering Plan on the website for all the details. Thanks for being sensitive to those around you!

We will continue to offer Livestream each Sunday morning at 10am on our YouTube channel as well as post Video Services to this page each week.

Are you a First Time Visitor?  Whether you join us in person or on our Livestream, we want to connect with you!  Fill out a Visitor Form and our staff will contact you.

Gathering with a Purpose

Atmosphere:

The mood will be casual and accessible, yet also ordered and honoring to God.  We want people to feel welcomed and comfortable, while not ignoring that we are gathered to worship God.

Gospel:

The death of Christ for the separation from sin and the resurrection of Christ for the infilling of new life will be central because this Work meets the needs of both believers and unbelievers.

Scripture

Scripture will be woven into every aspect of our gatherings because it is here that we find truth that changes lives. Scripture will provide a backdrop to worship songs and the grounding for preaching.

Music:

We will lead the church with sincere, contemporary, high-quality music without being flashy or over-polished. Our lyrics will espouse truth and lead us in the praise and worship of God.

Expression:

We are gathered to worship God in unity, but welcome freedom of expression to stand, sit, kneel, dance, raise hands, etc.  Each individual needs to be sensitive to both the Spirit’s leading and the other worshipers.

Participation:

We will provide space for congregational prayer and the sharing of spiritual gifts. This will be a Spirit-led time to offer a prayer, testimony, encouragement, exhortation, or Scripture. This time will be ordered and defined.
