For The City
Serving our community by meeting needs in Jesus’ name.
For the city is devoted to meeting needs in our city in Jesus’s name. We work to connect people with service opportunities in our community through our Local Mission Partners, Church-Wide Projects, Life Transformation Groups, and other city initiatives. We long for all eLifers to find their place to serve and be apart of the change we want to see in out city.
All Church Projects
Throughout the year we look for opportunities to team up with our Local Mission Partners to blitz the city with service. We want to be a blessing to our partners and educate our church on the needs that exist in our community. We encourage people to use their time, talents, and resources to serve others. Be on the lookout for what is coming next!
Life Transformation Groups (LTGs) serve together each semester. Many have adopted Local Mission Partners and others have come around eLife foster families to provide support. Our vision is to see each LTG find a place to serve, build relationships, and invest on a deeper level to make a greater impact in our city.
Local Mission Partners
We believe that by partnering with others in our community, we can make a bigger impact. We have partnered with over 30 local non profit organizations who have amazing ministries and are doing an awesome job of serving our community.

In November 2013 we launched our One Less Orphan Initiative. We are committed to caring for the orphan and supporting the foster care system. We have seen many eLifers answer the call to become foster families and mentor foster children and youth. We are also a part of One Heart Orphan Care Alliance where we partner with 15 other churches in Lubbock to provide even more support to foster care and adoptive agencies. We want to be a church that lives out James 1:27 which says, “Pure and genuine religion in the sight of God the Father means caring for orphans and widows in their distress and refusing to let the world corrupt you.” Find out more and get involved with OneLess here.
