service & mission
All members and friends of LCCC are welcome to join and support any of our projects locally or nationally. Think globally - act locally to preserve the environment, feed the hungry, clothe the naked and work for an end to poverty.
Service and Mission Ministries regularly supports disaster relief both by financial giving and providing on-site work teams. We have sent mission teams to hurricane and tornado rebuilding sites.
LCCC has entered into partnership with Lynnhaven River Now as a Pearl Faith Community to both educate anyone interested and act on local initiatives promoting the health of our local waters and sustainable living.
Yearly, we participate in Clean the Bay day to help clean the area beaches and waterways.
Helping those without Homes
LCCC members are committed to helping at PIN Ministries and JCOC, with preparing and serving meals, collecting needed items such as clothing, and providing medical support. Recently in partnership with Commonweatlth Catholic Charities (CCC), members from our congregation helped a refugee family settle into their first US home.
Also, during the winter months we help with meals for the Winter Shelter and during the summer months we partner with VB Fest programming to house families for one week in our Community Center.
Extending Beyond Hampton Roads
We've recently joined forces with International Rescue Committee (IRC) to teach English/ESL to refugees. In the past, we've traveled to North Carolina and Haiti to help with everything from organizing foster care supplies to outfitting handicapped children with wheelchairs.
