Heartsofservice

At LCC, we desire to represent the Lord Jesus Christ as we serve each other, our community, and globally. Much of our connection to our local ministries happens through our Hearts of Service Team. This is group of people at LCC that are dedicated to identifying and meeting the service needs of LCC and the Longview community.

Matthew 25:40 – The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’

Heartbeat Day of Service

Heartbeat Day of Service is an annual event at Longview Christian Church designed to serve those in need within our congregation and partnering with ministries to serve others in our community.

Serving LCC

Many of our more mature, single person, and single parent families need help with common maintenance and repair issues in their homes.  Heartbeat Day of Service allows others within our congregation to give needed assistance while showing the love of Christ through service.

Serving Our Community

LCC has partnered with area ministries to extend our resources in service to others within our community.  In previous years we have provided both on-going ministry services, as well as focused support during Heartbeat Day of Service.
