Serve



Every believer was created to have a ministry within the church. In our SERVE class, we help you discover your unique S.H.A.P.E. as the basis for discerning where you will be most effective and joyful in your service.  We follow the SERVE class up with a personal interview with a ministry coach who assists you in finding appropriate ministry opportunities in the church. Service does not have to be servitude; discover your God-given S.H.A.P.E. and watch your contribution help build the Body of Christ!

Children

          Birth-PreK

Our Goal is for your child to learn to love the Lord that will lead to a lasting relationship with Jesus Christ by teaching the Bible in fun and exciting ways.

Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old, he will not depart from it.  Proverbs 22:6 

Our preschool classrooms are split into three different age groups:

Nursery – Infants to age one. Our nursery workers will listen to your instructions when you drop your child off.  Please let them know what snacks or drinks your child needs and at what times.  Your child’s diaper will be changed if needed.  Please bring a diaper bag supplied with all your child’s needs.

Wobblers – One to two years. This class is designed for babies just learning to walk and play with their friends! Please bring whatever snacks or drinks you would like your child to have for this time as well as a diaper bag supplied with all their needs.

Toddlers – Two to three years.  Your child will be excited to join playtime at the beginning of this class.  Once everyone is settled in, your child will learn a bible story, color, sing songs and have a snack.  This class is then ended with exciting playtime.

Preschoolers – potty trained 3’s through entering kindergarten. Our preschool class is currently using the Elevate Jr. curriculum, which is designed just for them. This is an exciting and active time allowing them to dance and sing, play games, and participate in hands-on activities and crafts, all while focusing on learning more about the Bible and God’s love for them.

Safety policy:  For the safety of all the children, children are signed in by their parent or guardian prior to service and can only be picked up by the parent or guardian.          

          K-5th Grade (LTC Kidz)

LTC Kidz is our program for children grades K-5th and takes place during the worship service on Sunday mornings. LTC Kidz is filled with dynamic worship, skits, activities, and Bible study, and will help children learn more about Jesus as they have fun. LTC Kidz is staffed by enthusiastic volunteers from our church who truly love what they do.

Students

          6th Grade (Area 56)

Area 56 is a class designed just for 6th graders! This class helps get your 6th grader ready for the youth group. We meet on Wed. nights from 6:15 – 8:00 pm at LTC.

          7th-12th Grade (Youth - The Outlet)

About The Outlet
The Outlet is our youth group at Living Truth Church. We welcome students from 7th - 12th grade on Wednesday nights and for all Outlet activities. At the Outlet, it’s our goal to provide opportunities for our students to grow through worship, teaching, small groups, and yearly trips/events. Upcoming events are on the church calendar! If you have any questions about The Outlet, please contact Jeff Cranford (jeffcranford1@icloud.com).

"I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing." John 15:5

Adults

          Women - Soul Sisters

Through various mission projects, get-togethers and an annual retreat, the women of LTC stay connected to each other while reaching out to those new in our church. Contact Tammy Owens, Sarah Whitfield or the church office to find out the latest planned events for the ladies.

          Men - Band of Brothers

Iron sharpens iron. Men are constantly under attack in our society. Oftentimes, as the man goes, so goes the home. Get connected to this growing ministry for men whether in the form of joining an accountability group, attending a Promise Keepers Conference or just watching the Super Bowl together.

Each year, our Band of Brothers host 4 major events with several other events in between:
BoB Retreat - Late Winter
BoB Shootout - Summer
Epic Men's Event - Early Fall
BoB Bon Fire - Late Fall/Early Winter

We also have two mens small groups that meet weekly. One on Sunday mornings at 7:30 in the church conference room and one on Tuesday nights at 7:00 at a church member's home.

If you have any questions about Band of Brothers, please contact Jared Owens at jaredowens29@gmail.com.

Care Ministry

          Prayer Ministry

The power is in prayer. Help us form more pockets of prayer all over the community. You are welcome to join a group already in progress, or help us multiply by starting a new group of three or four.

          Baptism

Baptism is an important step in your journey as a follower of Christ; it's an outward symbol of the work God has already done in your life. Jesus died and was raised again so that we can have a relationship with God.  When you make the decision to accept Christ as your Savior and give Him the steering wheel of your life, the Bible says that your old way of life is dead, (symbolized by going under the water) and that you are now beginning a new life with Christ (symbolized by coming up out of the water).  Baptism helps us understand our connection to Jesus in His death, burial, and resurrection. Learn more about Baptism.

          Memorials

Planning a memorial service while grieving the loss of a loved one is never easy, and we do our best to help families in every way we can during this difficult time. Please feel free to contact us for any needs you may have.

Access Ministry

Access ministers to those with special needs and their families.

Our respite program provides a brief period of rest and relief for parents of children with disabilities. During respite, parents drop all their children off at church with our trained volunteers and take a well-deserved break from the rigors of parenting to spend time doing things they enjoy. Respite will be held at LTC on the second Saturday of every month from 1PM to 5PM. Due to limited space, we are only able to serve 10 families at each respite (first come, first serve - if we are unable to serve your family, we will contact you).

HOPES Rising

H.O.P.E.S. Rising focuses on C.A.R.E. - Community, Assistance, Recovery, and Education.

Celebrate Recovery - A Safe and Confidential Place, Celebrate Recovery is a Christ centered Recovery Group for everyone who struggles with Hurts, Habits, or Hang-ups.

Marriage & Family

          Baby Dedications

Baby dedications are always a fun moment to witness! During this time, parents publicly acknowledge that their child is a blessing from God.  Pastors emphasize the importance of a commitment by the parents to provide a Godly home and environment to foster the spiritual growth of their child.

If you have a baby or toddler you want to dedicate to the Lord, please call the church office at 994-7698.

          Preparing for Marriage

Perhaps more important than the ring, the wedding planning, and the honeymoon is the need to know what God’s word says about marriage. Both Pastor Norm and Pastor Andy are available for pre-marriage counseling and require the couple to go through at least 4 sessions before performing a wedding ceremony. There will be a pre-marriage counseling test for each couple with a $15 charge for the test. If you are currently dating, thinking of getting engaged, or planning a wedding, please contact the church office (994-7698) for more information.

Marriage for Life Date Night

Community Service

The definition of a community is a group of people living in the same geographical location and sharing the same resources. It is this term SHARING that brings us at Living Truth to answer the call to serve in our community.

$100 Challenge

Pastor Norm has challenged us to impact our community for Christ. Each week, a different CPR group is stepping up to the plate, taking a $100 bill from a church member, and using it to creatively bless or meet needs of people in our own community. We are making a tangible difference to the people of the Pace/Milton area by being the hands and feet of Jesus.

Missions

At LTC, we believe that missions is an important and vital role in the Christian walk. We support missions on local, state, national, and worldwide levels and are looking to become even more involved as we grow.

Some recent mission trips include sending teams to Guatemala and the Domincan Republic to build homes for families in need. We also participate in programs such as Operation NOAH to help rebuild homes that were inundated by floods of water as the levies broke after Hurricane Katrina.

To date, we’ve traveled 51,000 + miles on mission around our nation and around the world.
