We exist to bring glory to God in all things by making disciples through Christ-centered worship, Christ-centered community, Christ-centered service, and Christ-centered multiplication.

At LEFC, we believe in an infinitely big God who rules over all, yet who loves His children personally and passionately beyond their wildest dreams.  We affirm the Bible as God’s absolutely true holy Word and that it is the ultimate authority in all of life and the pursuit of godliness. We trust that the Holy Spirit leads and empowers our church, and are reliant upon God in prayer to achieve His purposes through us.  

We aim to grow more like Christ through discipleship, and value relationships and community with each other. We strive to keep the Gospel of Jesus Christ foundational to all that we do, because this good news applied to our lives changes everything. Because news this good ought to be shared, we do so locally, regionally and globally.

why we gather

At LEFC we believe that we gather as a redeemed people with work to do. We gather to worship and be encouraged and equipped with the truths of the gospel through the Word, singing, prayer, and communion that we might go and build God’s people to maturity and proclaim the gospel until Christ returns.

Will you come join us so we can worship and work together?

We aim to provide a variety of opportunities for individuals and families to get deeper involved in our church and grow in their relationships with one another and with Christ. We currently have established men’s and women’s ministries, an active Youth Group, and a young adult ministry (The Gathering), but new groups and ministries are prayerfully forming and growing to meet the diverse needs of our church body.

serve with us

“For you were called to freedom, brothers. Only do not use your freedom as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another.” (Galatians 5:13)
We believe that serving others is a vital part of the Christian life. At LEFC there are many ways to use the gifts God has given you to bless others. Finding an opportunity to serve in our church is a fast way to feel like “part of the family,” so do not hesitate to find ways to jump in and lend a hand. Please consider how your passions and gifts fit with an existing opportunity to serve.
Not sure if LEFC has an opportunity for you to serve? Talk with one of our elders and they will be able to help guide you in the right direction.
