We’re so glad you’ve landed here! These are such chaotic and uncertain times, aren’t they? But we’re committed to become the best Lighthouse Church we can be — for our whole community. So while we’re following the guidelines of our civic leaders and not gathering in person on Sunday mornings, we don’t intend to miss a beat!
Although we’re a smaller church, we’re leveraging that to our advantage. That’s why we’ve decided to keep things as interactive as we can rather than just posting sermons online. Here’s how it works:
During the week prior to each Sunday we prepare and distribute a fresh, thought-provoking Worship Guide for the first half of each service. That’s by design! We want to encourage folks to intentionally practice new worship habits so that we can continue to disciple our kids or encourage each other.
Then, just before 10:30 am on Sundays, we ask you to click anywhere on the main image on the page (see above) or click this link. Using the wonders of technology, we will live stream our worship service. We also build in time for fellowship, sharing and prayer immediately after the Worship Service via online Chat rooms. Click on the blue button above or this link. We think it works really well and would love to have you join us.
We’ve created our own little phone tree to check in on each other. We want to make sure we’re staying in touch, encouraging, and praying for each other well. You certainly don’t have to be a part of Lighthouse, but if you’d like to be involved or know someone for whom it would refresh their lives, or would simply like to be on our mailing list for each week’s worship guide, please let us know!
The Lord is our light and our salvation –
whom shall we fear?
The Lord is the stronghold of our lives –
of whom shall we be afraid?Psalm 27.1
Our stand on justice and equality
The Lighthouse Covenant Church Board of Overseers would like to share some sentiments related to the death of George Floyd along with countless others.
To start, we recognize that our God created and loves equally people of every nation, tribe, people and language. About this the scriptures are clear, as you can reference in John Chapter 3 and Revelation Chapter 7. We Christians have not always lived out these scriptures in the way we relate to others, but we repent of our sins and ask God for forgiveness.
We recognize that for too long, and in too many places, black people have suffered systemic racism. We stand against this. All people should be treated with the dignity due them as God’s image-bearers. We want all black Americans to know that we are with you, including our brothers and sisters in Christ. As 1 Corinthians 12 says, when one member of the body suffers, we all suffer.
We lament for all the recent victims of injustice in our country. That includes people treated unfairly by law enforcement, and it also includes officers and others who were hurt in recent riots. Arson, looting and general mayhem are destroying businesses and communities. These are all evil deeds.
What should the church do now? We can stand against injustice everywhere we see it. We can be ministers of reconciliation. We can listen to and learn from people who have different perspectives. We can pray to our powerful God who is able to change hearts and minds, and turn people back to himself.
To churches and believers of all backgrounds, this is our moment to unite to show the world the comfort, justice and grace of our God. Stay faithful to the Lord, and in him we shall overcome.
