Our Services

What are services like?
Saturday Praise Service is in our fellowship hall with a praise band. Seating is around tables where you are invited to bring your cup of coffee and snack from the refreshment area. Dress is casual. Sunday morning traditional service is in the sanctuary. Casual dress to business suits and ladies with hats can be expected. Sunday afternoon Iglesia - Spanish service is full of praise. It is held in the fellowship hall.

What is the community like?
Lehigh Acres is a mix of many cultures. It is an affordable community so many young families move to the area. The average age is 35. There are some businesses locally but most people commute into Fort Myers or other towns for work.

What if I'm not a Christian?
You are welcome to join us and experience a friendly, warm and caring community. We hope that you will eventually accept Christ as your personal savior but until then you are welcome to ask questions and to attend Bible studies or Life Tree Cafe where current topics are discussed.
