The Living Word Connect Department provides the following member services:

Active Duty Appreciation Packages:
We provide ministry to our Military Active Duty Personnel. As an expression of love to our members, we send out appreciation packages as a means to encourage, bless, and minister to them, as well as to keep them connected to their Living Word Christian Center family.

Baby Dedications:
We dedicate babies to the Lord, according to Matthew 19:14: But Jesus said, “Let the children come to me. Don’t stop them! For the Kingdom of Heaven belongs to those who are like these children” (New Living Translation). We assist in coordinating the time, date and location of the occasion. This is a courtesy to LWCC members with children (ages 0 – 2 years). Altar ministers are available to pray for non-member families who want their children dedicated.

We may provide assistance during a time of hardship; however, assistance is provided on a case-by-case basis for members, who are experiencing a time of great financial lack or facing a homeless situation. Individuals requesting benevolence must complete an application, along with a screening process, to determine the need and if the church will assist in fulfilling the need.

Bereavement / Comfort:
We assist members (and their families) during this transitional period by extending our prayers, compassion, love, support, and aid after the loss of a loved one (i.e., spouse, child or parent). We will assist in facilitating the on-site service. 

(I Thessalonians 4:13-14, 18) But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him. …Wherefore comfort one another with these words.

Car Donations:
We receive and process applications for members desiring to donate or who are requesting a donated vehicle. 

Hospital / Hospice Visits:
When a member is hospitalized or in need of a hospice visit we will provide prayer and send a minister of Living Word Christian Center to visit the member or his/her loved one (family member), as requested and if appropriate.

Lost & Found:
Lost and found items may be retrieved from the security desk in the LWCC Church front lobby / gallery. Items are held for a period of 45 days; after that time LWCC reserves the right to donate or dispose of the item as appropriate.

 To inquire about a lost item contact Living Word Connect at 708-697-6190.

New Believers:
Our passion and goal is to ensure that New Believers have a firm foundation in which to build upon and that they are established in the Word of God so they can grow and experience a life of victory in Christ Jesus. We serve as a bridge to connect New Believers to the spiritual resources that are available to them at Living Word Christian Center. New Believers are encouraged to complete Foundation Classes as the first step in this process.

Silver Saints:
We coordinate and oversee events designed especially for senior saints ages 70 and up.

Spiritual Guidance:
As a resource to the Body of Christ, spiritual guidance is available by appointment and can be scheduled by contacting our office.

Visitor Care:
We invite you to visit our Welcome Center after each service located in the Gallery and Fellowship Hall areas located just outside of the main sanctuary, next to Sanctuary East. We trust that your visit with us will be a positive worship experience. A warm seat of welcome awaits your arrival here at Living Word Christian Center.
