What is interesting or unique about the history of your church?  

LGC was founded over 80 years in a home. When the congregation moved to their current location they purchased enough land to also build Lincoln Glen Manor, a senior living facility. That has been and continues to be an important mission for Lincoln Glen Church.

What do you want our USMB family to know about your congregation?

We love our fellow USMB churches. Our pastors have especially been blessed to regularly connect with other pastors in the Pacific District through regular Zoom meetings.

The focus of Easter weekend at LGC is outreach. The Community Egg Hunt, (pictured above) in partnership with a church that rents space on the LGC campus, is an event forr growing relationships wiith neighhbors and serving the community. The Easter worship service (pictured below) is one of the congregation’s bigger outreach opportunities of the year.

This summer, Lincoln Glen Church invited kids from the community to come and hear about Jesus’ love for them at Kid’s Camp.

While the 2022 Christmas Day service was very casual, it was one of the most meaningful services of the year, says Pastor Tyler Cole.

In partnership with a local Christian school, Lincoln Glen Church hosted a lunch for local pastors. Valley Christian Schools says 80 percent off the families at the school do not attend church, and they are working with local churches to reach these families.
