At Living Faith, we have numerous in-house ministries, as well as a number of ministries that we support. We feel that the best way to be involved in a local church is to be involved in ministry. Please let us know about your interests. We would love for you to be involved as part of the family!
Living Faith Ministries:
Children's ministry during our Sunday morning services is available for all ages. Nursery (ages 0-2) is provided during the entire service, Little Angels (ages 2-5) begins after Praise and Worship, and Flying High (ages 6-12) also begins after Praise and Worship. The J1 (Judah First) Youth Ministry (ages 13 and up) meets the first Sunday of each month after Praise and Worship. Dynamic lessons are taught about the love of God and His power in us!
The Living Faith Worship Team leads the congregation in song each Sunday morning. They play a combination of worship standards, modern worship, and original songs. They desire to see each person enter in to God's presence both so He can minister to them and so they can be prepared to hear the Word.
