What To Expect
Our weekend services are friendly, engaging, and open to everyone! Here are some of the details you’ll want to know!
COFFEE, TEA, & CONNECTIONS
Before our worship service begins, we invite you to grab a cup of coffee, tea, or possibly even Hot Cocoa from the “Living Room” just off the main foyer. You’ll find it next to the lighted “Jesus” sign outside our worship center. There will probably be others there and in the entry hallway who would love to get to know you. Everybody is friendly, so strike up a conversation!
If you have pre-school or elementary aged children, we provide child care for the young ones, and Sunday School for the older kids. You can find our Children’s Ministry check-in counter at the far end of the entry hallway, toward the back of the building. Once your children have been checked in, they will be welcome to join the other kids for engaging music, games, projects, and bible-based teaching.
WORSHIP THROUGH MUSIC
We invite you to join us in worship as our band leads us in a few songs of praise. Our band is made up of people who love Jesus and have musical gifts they enjoy using to lead in worship. The songs we sing are a mix of current worship, classics hymns, and everything in-between. We love to use music of all styles that highlights the Person, plans, word, and works of God.
WORSHIP THROUGH EXPOSITIONAL TEACHING
Following announcements, a member of our Teaching Team will deliver a 30 to 40 minute expositional sermon from God’s word, the Bible. Though we sometimes teach through biblical topics (rather than entire Bible books), it’s not the norm. We love the challenge and deeper understanding that comes from going verse by verse through books of the Bible. Our desire is to understand and know God through what He’s written in the scriptures, then apply it to our lives through obedient living.
After the sermon, the band leads us in a responsive time in worship.
WORSHIP THROUGH COMMUNION (The Lord’s Supper)
We also celebrate the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus by observing communion each week during our final worship set. If you have placed your faith in Jesus Christ, you are welcome to join us in this time of worship. Most often, small stations are set up around the room and worshippers are free to partake of the communion elements when they feel ready.
Please feel free to come as you are. You will be loved and included as you take your next steps towards a stronger relationship with Jesus. There is a place for you at LSCC!

What We Believe
The Bible –
We believe the Bible to be the inerrant and infallible words of God. The Bible is the final authority by which we live (1 Timothy 3:16).
We believe in one God eternally existing as one essence and three distinct persons: God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit, each of whom is fully God, yet there is only one God (Mathew 28:18-20).
We believe that salvation is found in Jesus alone, through faith alone. It is by God’s grace that a person is saved, not by any work or merit of our own (Ephesians 2:8-9).
Jesus Christ –
We believe that Jesus was born of a virgin and that He lived a perfect, sin-free life. He chose to sacrifice Himself by dying on a cross, which satisfied the penalty for our sins. He was raised to life three days later, conquering death and providing a way to live with God forever in heaven. We believe He will return one day to judge the living and the dead.
We believe all human beings are created by God and therefore posses intrinsic worth and purpose. However, we all have sinned and therefore need redemption through Jesus. We believe God has created us in His own image, either male or female (Genesis 1). Both men and women are equal in essence, dignity, and value but are distinct by God’s design. As part of God’s good created order, men and women are to have different yet complementary roles and responsibilities in the home and church. As it relates to the church, men and women are both expected to lead; however, the office of elder is reserved for qualified men (1 Timothy 3; Titus 1).
The Church –
We believe the church is the body of Christ sent to the world to shine the light and hope of Jesus. We do so by coming together on a regular basis to worship, pray, teach the Word, participate in communion, fellowship, give, and exercise our gifts and talents. We believe God has uniquely equipped His people to serve both inside and outside of the local church (1 Corinthians 12). The ultimate mission of the church is to bring glory to God by making disciples (Matthew 28:18-20).
We believe that baptism is an outward expression of an inward change brought about by the power of the Holy Spirit. The purpose of baptism is to publicly identify with Jesus’ death and resurrection (Romans 6:1-14). Therefore we do not believe the activity of baptism saves a person. Nevertheless it is an important command to follow and participate in (Acts 2:38-41).
We believe that Jesus instituted this meal as a symbolic way to remember His life, death, and resurrection. The bread and juice represent His body and blood and are to be taken only by those who believe in Jesus as their Savior (1 Corinthians 11:17-34).back to top
