Ministry Teams and Committees

LCGS is led by our visionary Church Council, which places strategic planning high on its priorities.  The on-the-ground work is organized into various Ministry Teams and Committees.  Our lay leaders work with our pastor and staff to enhance our service to one another and the world.

Ministry Teams

    Education coordinates our Sunday School and Vacation Bible School programs.
  • Evangelism and Fellowship works to train the congregation in sharing the love of Jesus and oversees our website, Facebook page, and community publicity.
