What To Expect
Hello and thank you for checking out our church! Our weekend services are friendly, engaging, and open to everyone! If you have young children, that’s great! We invite them to join our fantastic children’s ministry here at LSCC. Once your children have been checked in, they will be welcome to join the other kids for engaging music, games, projects, and biblically based teaching. When you’re ready to step into the service we invite you to grab a cup of home-roasted coffee and pick up a donut hole or two and join us in the auditorium.
As the service starts you can expect to see and hear a live band. The songs we use are current, up-to-date, worship music like you would listen to on the radio. The lights are lowered during the music set and the words to the songs are on the screens up front to help you fully immerse yourself in worship. As a continuation of the worship set we spend a few minutes in prayer as a church, lifting up praises and requests before the Lord. After that we thank God for His blessings and worship God through giving. We then spend about 30 minutes listening to a bible-centered message that is both challenging and encouraging, and always keeps you engaged.
Our service concludes with a time of communion where we invite all believers to join us in remembering and celebrating the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus. Please feel free to come as you are and know that you will be loved and included as you take your next steps towards a stronger relationship with Jesus. There is a place for you, here with us!

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
