Ministries

FCCLG has a mission of Accepting all, Reaching out, and Touching lives.  In order to ensure that we live out this mission, the people of FCCLG volunteer on ministry teams.  Teams work on many tasks, from serving the poor to mowing the church lawn.

Thank you to everyone serving on a ministry team this year!

Ministry of Nurture

Our Ministry of Nurture team helps coordinate food, fun, and fellowship for our congregants. Whether it’s our weekly post-worship coffee hour or the annual fall Harvest Home Dinner, the Ministry of Nurture works to bring the people of FCCLG together to nurture a sense of community and unity.

FCCLG supports the hard working farmers who grow and harvest our coffee beans. We supply fair trade coffee, whenever possible.

Check out these videos about fair trade coffee. When farmers are paid fair prices for their coffee beans, whole villages are able to sustain life. As a congregation of coffee lovers, we can make a global difference!

Mission and Service

The Ministry of Mission organizes hands-on mission opportunities and provides financial support to local, national, and global ministries.  10% of our church’s budget goes to support mission and outreach all over the world.

In the last year we worked with Feed My Starving ChildrenChicago Night Ministry, took an adult mission trip to the UCC Disaster Relief  in New Orleans, hosted a Heartland Blood Drive, and organized a No Room At The Inn nativity exhibit.

If you’re interested in participating in FCCLG’s mission work, please contact the office at [email protected]!

Women’s Ministry

Gathering with women of all ages is a meaningful experience.  It is a time to share stories, exchange wisdom, and experience God in and through one another.  We open ourselves more fully to all the joys of life when we share those joys with people who care for us.  We encourage every woman to consider joining our Women’s Ministry events.

The Saturday Meals Program

The Saturday Meals Program (SMP) Provides three meals every Saturday from 8:00 am to 1:30 pm; a hot breakfast, a hot lunch and a sack lunch to take away.  But it’s more than that.  We don’t serve food, we serve people.  All are welcome.
