Ministries:

CHILDREN

We love kids at Life Church. There is a ministry for all ages every time we meet. We have kids’ camps in the summer, take day trips, movie nights, and more.
Each Sunday morning, our trained nursery workers and volunteers provide a loving environment for our babies and crawlers in our Nursery. They use music, stories, and hugs to tell the children about Jesus. Our preschoolers join together for Life Kids Jr where they learn about Jesus through Bible stories, crafts, music, and games. There share a lot of giggles, fun, and joy as they discover how much God loves them.
Our elementary age kids join with others in LIFE KIDS. They have fun with music, puppets, games, and encouraging Bible stories. We also show movies from time to time. Our children love to worship with our praise dancers and pray with our volunteer leaders. We also have wonderful ministries on Wednesday nights for boys and girls. Our boys and girls join together to learn how to be the boy or girl God has created them to be. One more thing, we are diligent in providing a safe secure place for all of our families. Our volunteers undergo criminal background checks to insure a safe environment for all of our children. Our safety team also assists in following guidelines and policies (like signing your children in and out). All of this is because we love kids and want them to know how much Jesus loves them too.


YOUTH

EDGE is an acronym that stands for Every Day God Encounter. Our students gather each Wednesday night for a powerful experience in worship. We use media, games, and drama to illustrate God’s word in a transforming way.  There is ample opportunity for us to hear and respond to God.
EDGE also has many activities throughout the year for our students to get involved in. Conventions, camps, get-together's, girls night out, and boys activities are just some of the fun that we have.

Fine Arts

Life Church is passionate about worship. Our Fine Arts ministry uses music, drama, media, flags, and dance to lead us into the presence of God. Our team of people is committed to exalting Jesus. We use our gifts each week to help create an atmosphere where we can experience the fullness of God.  Our goal is to connect people with the transforming presence of the unchanging God by lifting their spirit through the arts.
If you have a heart for worship and want to use the gifts of the arts, this is the place for you. We have quality people who serve weekly. However, there is always room for more.

Family Life Classes

Family Life Classes are our version of Sunday School. We meet each Sunday morning before our morning worship service. There is a class for every age with topics ranging from books of the Bible, finances, to parenting. Our goal is for every believer to be in a growing relationship with Jesus Christ through prayer and Bible study. You will find people who are eager to learn with you as you enjoy fellowship, coffee, and the Word.

Life Groups

Our Life Groups meet in homes, restaurants, and other locations depending on the focus. They are led by volunteers who are on similar journeys as you. There are groups for men, women, families, and hobbies. You will build long lasting relationships that will encourage you in your walk with the Lord.
Groups can be focused around a hobby, use curriculum, or center around common interests. The possibilities are limitless! We meet at all times throughout the week. Also, we have a fall semester, spring semester, and summer short term.

Women's Ministries

We use the name Ladies of the LC for our women’s ministry name.  It is our desire to lift up Jesus and each other.  We do this through weekly Bible Studies, monthly out-to-lunch gatherings, movie nights, scrapbooking, and quarterly brunches.  You will discover genuine friendship, encouragement, growth, and a place to belong. Our ladies are active in promoting missions around the world, going on retreats, and attending conferences.
We desire to help women of every age become the wife, mother, and business woman that God has called her to be.

Men's Ministries

Our men’s ministry is called WILD Men's Ministry. WILD stands for
Warriors In Leadership and Discipleship. We meet for times of fun and fellowship. You will hear the latest jokes (we can’t guarantee they will be funny) and fish stories. You will also hear testimonies and be encouraged as we pray for one another and share in the word. Our men participate on mission trips around the world. We also help serve our church organizing work days to take care of the facilities and grounds.
We go on retreats and look for any excuse to have fun, go golfing, and enjoy recreation. Our goal is to equip men to become the leaders that God has called them to be in the home, business world, and the church.

International Students

We have students that come from all around the world to study at Gadsden State Community College. Our International Students Ministry provides a home for them to connect to each other and God. Our students meet weekly for fellowship and Bible study. We are also active in witnessing on campus to the student body and faculty. You will discover a diversity of cultures and languages that come together to learn more about Jesus Christ. 

Missions

Life Church has a heart for people around the world. We partner with home and foreign missionaries in over thirty countries. We also support college campus ministries, prison ministries, and new churches in cities across America through financial support. Through special offerings, we help to purchase vehicles, literature, and necessary items that missionary families need on the field.
Moreover, one of the most exciting things that we do is to provide opportunities for people to go on short term missionary trips. Our teams have built churches in South America, Central America, and the United States. We have led children’s camps in Thailand and Bolivia. In addition, we have joined with Habitat for Humanity locally, providing affordable housing to hard working families. We love missions!
