FacilitiesX projects are opportunities to serve at the church building outside of our regular Sunday services. Assignments may include administrative office assistance and errands; cleaning and/or organizing the church/offices/classrooms; and assisting with seasonal lawn care and landscaping needs.

The parking team sets eXpectations for visitors by being the first friendly faces guests encounter upon arriving. This team also helps ensure the best use of the space we have available and directs the safest flow of traffic for vehicles and pedestrians as they enter and eXit the lot.

While everyone is encouraged to pray, the prayer team eXists for those who are particularly eXcited about praying corporately (with others) over our services, for our leadership, and for the community. This team meets in the prayer room every Sunday, 30 minutes prior to each service.

SecurityX is a team of individuals who help provide an eXtra layer of protection for our church family during services. If you possess a "particular set of skills" that would lend themselves well to providing those types of services, please let us know!
eXtend is the name of the game for our UshersX and GreetersX! This team is always ready to eXtend a hand wherever needed. They're quick to open doors, direct visitors, provide seating assistance for our guests, and prepare the platform for our pastors to speak
WorshipX/Media & Tech
The WorshipX/Media & Tech team includes singers, musicians, and A/V support techs (soundboard, video & onscreen elements). This team approaches every service with the eXpectation to honor God and eXperience His tangible presence by offering Him our most eXtravagant, passionate worship.

Note: We also have a variety of special services throughout the year—such as conferences, women's events, and Christmas Eve—which will offer opportunities to serve on event-specific committees that will help organize, plan, prepare, set-up, and clean-up. Watch for communications on how to get involved in service & online!
Outside the Walls
eXtreme Service originally paved the road for how LifechurchX would continue eXtend outside the walls of the church to help others. It's motivated by nothing more than an authentic love for people and for our community. Our random service projects typically push the limits of what one might normally eXpect a service organization to do—be it eXcessive heat, cold, heights, or depths, we serve in the most eXtreme ways possible!
LifegroupsX provide an eXcellent opportunity to build friendships and grow stronger in our faith through spending focused time eXploring a shared curriculum. Our multi-week semesters are typically offered twice a year—once in the spring and again in the fall. This is also a great way to eXpand the church as we eXtend invitations to people outside our walls to join us in our homes for these eXceptional study groups!

Through our Local eXtensions, we partner with a variety of local organizations to help take the love of Jesus outside the church walls and share it with our friends and neighbors in the community. Below are just a few of the ways we accomplish this goal.
Teacher Recognition eXtension
In conjunction with the Waterloo School District, LifechurchX sponsors a teacher recognition eXtension in which one eXceptional teacher at each of the five schools in the district wins a plaque each month. At the end of the year, one of the plaque-recipients will be randomly selected to receive a cash award in appreciation for their eXcellence in teaching and serving our kids!
Zahnow PreK eXtension
Twice a month, LifechurchX provides snacks for Zahnow Elementary's Pre-K classes. This is an eXcellent way to help offset the cost that so many teachers have to absorb to ensure their students have ample provisions throughout the school year.
At Christmas time, LifechurchX is honored to provide Christmas gifts to families in the community who may otherwise not be able to eXchange presents with one another. Information on how to participate will be available in service and on our Website in December.
Safe Homes and Deep Water Wells
Global eXtensions are our response to God's mandate that we go into all the world to spread the Gospel to people of all nations. Through our partnership with Crisis Aid International and Global Messenger service, we are able to touch the lives of people in Africa, Asia, Europe, and the Americas. Currently, we are digging wells in remote villages in India with Global Messenger Service and fighting human trafficking by helping build a new safe home in Ethiopia with Crisis Aid International.
