We are aggressively going after the neXt generation and focused on building spiritually strong, healthy families. The strategic plans for our campuses over the neXt 2-3 years will reflect this. We plan to renovate both campuses and make them into facilities that have cutting edge LCXYouth spaces, shared space for community partnerships, state of the art LCXKids areas, dedicated prayers rooms open all week, and lots of hangout areas for people to linger in the house of God and build meaningful relationships.

My Giving Potential

Each of us can give far more than we think by giving it over a 36-month period.

And everyone who was willing and whose heart moved them came and brought an offering to the LORD for the work on the tent of meeting, for all its service, and for the sacred garments.

– Exodus 35:21
