Kids Town Children's Ministry

Kids Town is “a city whose builder and maker is God.” – Hebrews 11:10

Ministering to the needs of children is very important to us here at Living Word Church. We are committed to teaching children how to have a relationship with Jesus Christ even now as children.

Kids Town has a live worship band with high energy songs and videos that connect us with the Father in praise and worship. We communicate the message God has for the children with games, illustrations, and activities. By presenting the Word of God to children at an early age it can make a lifelong impact in a relationship with Jesus Christ.

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

Children are not only the church of tomorrow; they are the church of today!

Embers Senior Adult Ministry

A ministry for adults ages 50 and up. The Embers group meets quarterly for events.


Lion Chasers Men's Ministry

Ecclesiastes 4:12 says, “One can be overpowered, two can defend themselves but a cord of three is not easily broken.” Jesus didn’t send his disciples out alone, he sent them out in twos to support and compliment each other in ministry. Let’s face it, even the Lone Ranger didn’t go alone!

Men’s Network is for any man that wants to stay strong, and grow. We meet monthly for Men's Breakfasts and other events. Stay tuned for upcoming events!

Women's Network

Sharing life, Connecting, Accountability

Women's Gatherings– A time of fellowship and sharing our hearts.

Women's Encounters – A weekend get away for the purpose of Encountering God in such a way that will change lives forever.


Life Groups

At Living Word, we believe our destiny and calling will take more courage and strength than we have on our own and is best fulfilled in community and partnership (Mark 3:14). We see this modeled throughout the New Testament, where the church met in two places. One was a corporate worship gathering in the temple, and the other place they met regularly was in homes. We call these small group gatherings "Life Groups".  Large gatherings serve their purpose of worship, equipping and encouraging, but small groups are the best atmosphere to make disciples, provide support, and practically grow in our faith.

We have a variety of groups for men, women, and couples of all ages that meet throughout the week. Stop by the Life Group Information Center or email for more information.

Freedom Ministries

The foundation of Freedom Ministries is being transformed by the renewing of your mind, Romans 12:2. Freedom Ministries teaches you to experience the Father’s love every day! We define freedom as the ability to respond fully to God out of who He created and redeemed you to be. Let’s face it – everyone wrestles from time to time with spiritual roadblocks that obstruct the life of freedom Jesus came to give. Some of our obstacles are obvious and others can’t be seen clearly. Through Freedom Ministries, we’ll help you identify and remove those things that are hindering your spiritual growth and power. 

Whether you face personal obstacles in your spiritual life or want to grow deeper in Christ and in your ministry, Freedom Ministries is for you. If you are interested in Freedom Ministries, contact the LWC office at 423-339-3028, or see Tabitha Shumate, Freedom Ministries Administrator.
