Why Living Word?

There are so many churches out there. What would make Living Word a great choice to call your home?

Living Word is…

Living Word is Christ centered. The motive behind everything we do - whether it be the preaching, music, or any other ministry - is always Jesus and what he has done for us. Our focus is always on the cross.

What does Living Word mean to you?

Karen talking at Living Word
“I received an invitation from a friend to go to her church. I went, I loved it, and have been there ever since. I love the sermons, the music, the singers, and the wonderful, friendly people here. But most of all I love Jesus, who died for me so I could have Eternal Life!” - Karen
Brooke from Living Word
“Coming to Living Word has changed my life. Everyone is so fun to be around and I felt very welcomed. Since going to Living Word I have become more interested in learning more about God and His word. Living Word has helped me grow in my faith.” - Brooke


Faith Quest at Living Word

Faith Quest

Every Sunday, during the service, Faith Quest is offered. It’s a wonderful opportunity for children to learn God’s Word at their level while their parents sit in the service listening to the sermon. Each week the Bible stories come to life through crafts, games, snacks, and interactive activities!
