Welcome Ministry

If you have questions about getting connected, please ask Kim Dees.

OK, really: you have no idea how much we want you to feel at home.   Whether your visit to Lighthouse lasts one morning or a couple of decades, we want you to feel relaxed, welcomed and cared for here. No matter who you are, no matter where you come from, and – yes – no matter what junk you may be carrying with you in your life, you are a person of immeasurable value to God. That makes you a special guest, whether it’s your first time or your 34th, or 247th. Got questions?  Got worries about visiting?  The Welcome Team is here to address them for you.  You can’t miss the welcome ministry leaders, Melody Bosley and Kim Dees, but in case you do have questions about getting connected, please email

Life Groups

lifegroupA Life Group is a mini-community within the church fellowship, designed for relational connection, shared spiritual growth, and shared service.

Most groups meet weekly in the home of a hosting family, and most have a specific study topic that the members engage together for a period of 6-12 weeks before moving on to new topics.   Consider yourself, your neighbors and your friends invited to any of these gatherings!

For current Life Group schedules, check out the Lighthouse calendar.

Women’s Group

Women’s ministry at Lighthouse takes a number of forms – from quarterly women’s brunches, to an annual spring women’s retreeat, to weekly Bible studies geared for women.

The engine behind it all is a desire for deepening relationship, with God and with one another.   Check the calendar for upcoming women’s gatherings, and consider yourself invited! Check the calendar for the women’s group schedule.

Kids & Youth

Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it.’ – Proverbs 22:6.

Some of the greatest mysteries of God’s kingdom find beautiful expression in the eyes, ears and words of children. We have a desire to see every child with the same tenderness and joy that Jesus does.


Children and youth are an important part of God’s family and ours. You’ll find our youngsters involved in a variety of roles during the service. We also have Family Worship Bags filled with crayons, Bible coloring pages, and children’s Bible storybooks for families with younger children. We encourage families to consider worshiping together whenever possible. However, we recognize that this may not be the best choice for every family on every Sunday, and so we have Sunday School available for children in grades K-5 during the sermon.  An adult leader will meet children in the lobby after the children’s message and escort them to class. This will be available each week except for the first Sunday of the month, when children will join us for the duration of our communion service.


A staffed nursery is always available for
nursing mothers and children up to 4 years.

We also invite children to be a big part of Christmas, Easter, Mother’s Day, and other seasonal celebrations. Summertime brings a wonderful week of Vacation Bible School, and camp opportunities for grades 4th and up.
