What We Support
In Our Community...
Lighthouse Church desires to make a lasting difference in individuals, our community, and around the world. We are passionate about demonstrating God’s love to others. It is our desire to lead people to become fully devoted followers of Christ. Everything we do bears this central purpose.
We believe that relationships, love, and good deeds are essential in reaching out to effectively communicate the message of Christ to our world. We build on the strengths God has given each of us. Lighthouse partners with community organizations, local churches, and focuses on global opportunities on 6 continents.
We believe that communities won’t be changed by programs, but by relationships developed among the people within that community. Our strategy for ministering is to build and support relationships that inspire lasting change. We connect with others locally through various opportunities within our community. We can accomplish more together than apart. Consider how you can direct your passion, experiences, and resources to bring real, lasting change to our community and around the world.
Prison Services: Our local prisons are full of people in desperate need of forgiveness and restoration to God and to others. We believe that we are called to minister to prisoners through a monthly prison service inside our local prison. Because of Christ, there is hope and new life for us all--no exceptions. For more information, contact Pastor Kevin Brown @ firstname.lastname@example.org
Every-Day Compassion: Many local food banks in our area are well-established and are already very efficient at serving our communities.
Instead of spinning our own, we choose to partner with other food banks to reach those in immediate need of food and emergency supplies. For more information, contact Grant Leonhard @ email@example.com
Nursing Home Relationships: We have opportunities to build relationships with people in the winter of their lives. Time is one of our most valuable commodities. We seek to comfort and encourage others, using our time in a positive, lasting way. Contact Teresa Martz for more information @ firstname.lastname@example.org

Operation Christmas Child: Since 1993, more than 100 million boys and girls in over 130 countries have experienced God’s love through the power of simple shoebox gifts from Operation Christmas Child. We partner with Samaritan’s Purse to deliver gifts and share the life-changing good news of Jesus Christ. Contact Donna Brown for more information @ email@example.com
Orphan Sunday: We believe that God places the lonely in families—our families. Lighthouse prays for, wraps around, and supports those members who have adopted each year. We are a people called to defend the fatherless…to care for the child that has no family…to visit orphans in their distress. We desire God’s great love for the orphan to find echo in our lives as well. For more information, please contact Donna Brown @ firstname.lastname@example.org
Renew Ministries, Inc: After years of working with people through different recovery venues such as divorce recovery and various 12-step groups, Robin Gilbert Luftig founded Renew Ministries in 2009 with the purpose of sharing God's plan for healing to spiritually and emotionally broken women. Renew Ministries is devoted to investing in the spiritual lives of those who want to heal from the pain that comes with brokenness. For more information, please contact Robin at
Events & Trips...

Those events include a community picnics, summer Bible School, and Family Activity nights. As the months draw near, specific information will be given.

Missionaries Around the World...
At Lighthouse, we support 22 different partners on 6 different continents. These missionaries are working in local churches around the world with the central focus of sharing and showing God's love.
As a faith community, we give in various ways to our global partners, but mainly through regular monthly support. For more information on monthly or one-time monetary gifts, please contact Teresa Martz @ email@example.com
The Persecuted Church: We join in praying for Christians worldwide throughout the year, as well as specifically on International Day of Prayer. This is a time set apart for us to remember thousands of our Christian brothers and sisters around the world who suffer persecution, simply because they confess Jesus Christ as Lord. Daily reminders and prayer points are available throughout the year. For more information, contact Lachelle Brown @ firstname.lastname@example.org

Walking Program: Our passion is to reach hurting people with Christ's message of hope. This walking program is comprised of individuals that walk in their own neighborhoods with purpose. While walking, place door hangers at homes within your neighborhood. These are non-confrontational opportunities for people in our community to make follow-up contacts when they are comfortable doing so—or they can simply discard them.
Anyone can be a part by walking outdoors in your own neighborhood, on your own schedule, at your own pace, whenever you like. Our desire is to compel those without Christ to come and find forgiveness, healing, hope, & community. See Donna Brown with questions and for invite cards, or contact her @ email@example.com

Neighbors Helping Neighbors: Our community outreach has expanded to collecting clothing and textile items for those in need through Community Aid. The collection bin is located on the front of our parking lot and is available 24/7 for donations.
We seek to imitate God's heart for people in our communities by partnering with upstanding organizations in the Harrisburg area, like Community Aid.
Thank you in advance for your continued generosity.
Keep shining brightly, Lighthouse!
Global Partners in Peace & Development: We have had many opportunities to partner with this upstanding organization and we share their values and heart for the things of God--the dignity of human life, the orphaned, the widowed, the starving, the thirsty, the homeless, the refugees, the suffering, the unreached, the abandoned and the oppressed. Global Patners is strategic about where they go and who they partner with. They share and show God's love by partnering, housing, teaching, feeding, giving drink to, building, creating, training, caring for and speaking life.
