Welcome to Living Word Family Church

At Living Word Family Church, we base our teaching upon God’s revealed Word, the Bible, and are committed to serve Him in the name of Jesus Christ. It is our desire that people come to place their trust in Christ, and continually grow in their relationship with Him.

We provide regular teaching and preaching from the Bible, meaningful times of worship, and opportunities for fellowship, prayer,outreach and numerous other ministries for people of all ages. Our extensive Children’s Ministry serves all those nursery age through high school. If you're seeking a church home, we gladly welcome you to all that Living Word Family Church has to offer.

  • childrenFrom the very beginning, we have seen the vital importance of ministering to the entire family, not just the adults. Because of this, we put a high priority on Children’s Ministry. Every area of our children’s department is designed to teach and train. We supply quality equipment and Bible-based curriculum for all age groups and are continually encouraging our teachers and helpers to recognize that in ministering to the children we are ministering to the entire family. A staff of capable volunteers are recruited from our congregation to teach and train these young ones.

Years Are Simply How We Measure the Passage of Time

It is likely that by the time you read this, you will have heard at least some of it from the pulpit, but it’s on my mind, so I’m writing about it now.

It’s time to say farewell to 2016, and welcome 2017. It sure seems, though, that an awful lot of people feel more like saying “good riddance!” to 2016, and to 2017, “thank God you’re here!”. Not everybody feels that way, of course, and of course even those who had a bad year can look back and see some bright spots (YAY CUBS!). But 2016 was a year full of high-profile celebrity deaths, some horrible terror attacks, and an uncommonly divisive election cycle. Add to these shared experiences the usual disappointments and hardships, and it’s understandable that a great number of people are glad to see the end of this year.
