LCC Upcoming Events
Worship Gathering at LCC
At Longview Christian Church, we understand worship to be our response to God's character and grace.Â This means that as we remember and reflect on who He is and what He has done, we respond byÂ having a heart bowed down and a will submitted in obedience to God!Â That's our best response in the presence of our Creator.
Psalms 51:16-17 // Romans 12:1-2
Worship, then, is expressed in both a personal way and inÂ larger gatherings.Â As we gather on Sundays together, we express our worship through prayer, sharing in the Lord's Supper, study of Scripture, giving of our gifts, and through the singing of praises to God through music.Â Our music style attempts to blend modern worship songs while incorporating a taste of the classic hymns that both bring honor to our God! Check out this coming Sunday's worship at our media downloads page.
What to Expect
We have 2 worship services that are exactly the same. Between those services there is plenty of time to talk and visit. We also have Foundation Studies during both services that allow us to dive deeper in to particular topics and books. Â Â» More information on Foundation Studies
At LCC, we encourage all of our families to attend the Worship Gathering together. We do have a nursery and childcare for kids in Kindergarten and below. During the service before the sermon, we usually dismiss kids 1-6 Grade to attend LCC Kids Worship, where there is a lesson designed for kids.
Our worship gatherings are very casual. We believe that God wants us to come to him as we are. Many folks think they have to dress up to come to church, and while that is nice, by no means will anyone even notice if you're not.
Our service is also very casual. Â Usually, a normal service will start with with a few worship songs, then announcements and church updates, followed by a few more songs, sharing in communion, offering, and a sermon time.
As Jesus' last meal on this earth, he broke bread with the disciples and told them to remember His body, and he drank wine with them and told them to remember His blood (Luke 22). We believe sharing this remembrance ceremony is so important that we do it as a community every week. It reminds of us of the sacrifice that Jesus made, and reminds us of our purpose as a church. Generally we pass a plate with a small piece of bread and small cup of juice, and share this time together. Anyone in Jesus and is a follower of him is welcome to join us.

How to Visit
If you know someone that attends, then let them know you're coming and they'll help you find a place to participate. If you don't know anyone, don't worry. Just find someone in either building and tell them you're new. We are always excited to meet new people and help them feel welcome.
