What can you expect when you attend our Sunday service? Glad you asked, please allow us to give you an overview of what a service generally looks like at LWM.
Welcome to the House of the Lord! We are glad you're here!
Welcome everyone to the house of the Lord. Our greeting team do just that. They will offer everyone a smile, a welcome, a bulletin and a guest card for our first time guest. Also, we have a reception in the lower level for any one worshiping with us for the first time immediately after the service.
That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven. Matthew 18:19
If you or someone you know needs prayer - please fill out a prayer request card and give to greeter. If God has answered your prayer - please fill out a praise report and give to greeter. You will see people coming forward for prayer and others gathering around them to agree with them on a particular request. You are welcome to come forward when invited for special prayer.
Why do we pray for the sick by laying on of hands and anointing with oil?
"...let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord, and the prayer of faith shall save the sick..."
- James 5:14-15
"...they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover."
- Mark 16:18
Prayer works! We have seen hundreds of healings, miraculous miracles, relationships restored, lives changed, brokenness mended, open doors, and yes even closed doors! All because we serve a wonderful prayer answering God who heard our prayer!

Prayer doesn't prepare you for the battle, it is the battle.
We begin the work of the Spirit of the Lord in our corporate prayer time before service. The prayer room and the Sanctuary is lifting up prayer, meeting our spirit to His Spirit for HIS Will, HIS plan, HIS purposes to be accomplished as we join together as a church body.

Preaching of the Word
All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.
- 2 Timothy 3:16-17
Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. And this promise is to you and to your children...
- Acts 2:38-39
LWM has a different concept of the Altar Appeal. While we do appeal for those who want to give their lives to the Lord in repentance and be filled with HIS precious Holy Ghost. The altar is also open for those who want to draw closer to the Lord, those who are struggling and need some strength, those who want to apply the preached WORD to their life. So there are no pre- conceived ideas when someone responds to the WORD and makes their way to the front. We will meet you where you are and pray with you. You are among friends. We all need the altar of the Lord in our life.
