There is always room at Light of the World Church for you to get involved. When you volunteer your time and talents to the work of God in the church, the body grows and builds itself up (Ephesians 4:16).
If you consider LWC as your home church, we encourage you to consider joining one of the ministries. Applications are available at the Church Bookstore.
Questions? Call the church office at (570) 420-9970.
