Caring for others isn't a program at LIFEChurch—it's who we are. Jesus linked loving God with loving others. Matthew 22:37–38 LIFEChurch cares for others both locally and globally by giving and serving. It's a priority. That's why ten percent of our income is set aside for serving, helping and assisting others.
