How can I be involved?

Everyone is important to our church family. One of the most important values of Levende Kirke is making a difference to the world around us. It begins in our own community, and spreads across our country overseas to every nation. The member’s of Levende Kirke are involved in a variety of ministries from things as simple as helping to clean and keep the church, preparing the church bulletins, cooking food, reaching out and participating in some of the activities mentioned below.

Mission Outreach

Levende Kirke is thrilled to be part of making a difference in people’s lives around the world. In doing so we are involved in various types of activities. Some of the more recent activities include supporting an orphanage in Mizoram, raising money for a project for mentally disabled children in New Delhi, sending clothes and toys to the Philippines.  We are active in sending out teams of people to support different churches or missionaries around the world. We support various missionaries with our money and with our prayers. In the last few years members from Levende Kirke have gone to India, Finland, Sweden and Germany to minister in various ways.  We encourage all of our people to respond to God’s call for labourers, whether it means that they move to a foreign country or live and minister in our own community.

Community Involvement 

We believe that it is our responsibility to make a positive impact on our community. Members from our church are involved in different ways, such as, making gift bags for homeless around Christmas, providing food to shelters and assisting in other ways. We have hosted events in cooperation with the Cancer Foundation. If you have additional ideas we are always interested in hearing these and consider if and how we might be able to be involved.

Music & Drama

We strive for having the kind of worship, which truly inspires all members of the church to participate and praise and worship God during our service. We therefore also encourage people to be involved in a variety of ways depending on their desires, skills and where they can help encourage other people in the church.  Some play their instruments. Some are vocalists. Still others get involved in drama. These volunteers are an important part of the ministry of Levende Kirke, using their talents and gifts to glorify God.

Married Couples

Even though marriage is one of the most important institutions, it is the one of the things we prepare the least for entering into. Living Church gives married couples the opportunity to join a preparing for marriage class, and several times every year we have a special lunch for married couples with some teaching or a time sharing to encourage those couples attending.

Ushers

The usher team at Levende Kirke fills an important role. They are involved in directing attendees to their seats, ensuring the safety of the building during services, helping visitors, answering questions, providing direction, unlocking doors, locking doors, and generally ensuring that the service can proceed problem-free. The usher team is led by Javier and is a servant-hearted group of men and women whose ministry is integral to our church.

Media & Technology

Using media to spread the gospel is a privilege of Levende Kirke. In an age of widespread technology, we have a responsibility to use these tools as best as possible. All of our weekly sermons are uploaded to our website in video and audio formats. We also maintain an active Facebook and Twitter feed for additional church communication.

Prayer Warriors

Prayer cannot be overestimated. Prayer moves the hand of God. Levende Kirke is committed to seeking God through prayer. Each Sunday, before the morning service, a group of volunteers meet and pray for the service. Throughout the week, our Prayer Warriors team, pray for their pastor, other people in church, any special requests, and missionary prayer needs. Every other Friday we have a special time of prayer at 6.30pm at the church.

Children’s Church

In order to give our children the best Bible teaching possible, Levende Kirke holds a children’s church before the service every Sunday. The first Sunday every month we have a special children’s service during the main service. This special time gives kids more opportunity for interaction and learning in a context and manner that may be better suited to their age and learning styles. Our friendly children’s church volunteers have an endless stream of creativity — ranging from puppet shows, to games, to object lessons.
