Lighthouse provides needs in many areas for those in need. I recently had the opportunity to volunteer w/ Lighthouse. To see children of all ages attending VBS it was overwhelming to see the hard work & dedication pay off . When I heard laughter from children that more than likely would've been left unattended this summer, they were given an alternative to be loved & valued as Christ loves . I look forward to working w/ Lighthouse for future opportunities to give a hand up for those in need while in troubled times.

Lighthouse Ministries has been a powerful presence in Bacliff, and for much of the Galveston area. As a resident of Santa Fe, and a worker in Galveston itself, I've seen the economic divide that occurs between the North and the South edges of the county, and I'm happy to see a God centered ministry reach across that divide.

Lighthouse offers a number of services from food preparation to resale ministries, education, and more. But most importantly, Lighthouse Ministries provides much needed support to local people in crisis.

This is such an effective ministry for our community! They serve a very high need area and they do it at such a high level of quality. This ministry must train their volunteers or just attract really good ones because the people who serve there are very professional and kind.

Lighthouse has helped me get my life back together in many ways. I'm so grateful for the support Lighthouse has given me. Here are just a few of the things they have helped me with studying for GED, mentoring, transportation, school supplies for my daughter etc. I am forever thankful for Lighthouse Christian ministries.

I went here to check out the thrift shop, and found out this place has so much more to offer. I also picked up food here which lasted my family 2 week, and now i am attending the GED program here which far exceed my expectation they have 4 teachers that are very experienced and want you to pass. I recommend this place to anyone to see what they can help you with.

I am in the G.E.D. program right now and I'm really happy with the teacher. They take the time to make sure you understand the material that you are are working. I will recommend the program to my friends.

We have volunteered to distribute food, move furniture, and observed the GED program. We get excited every time we go down to give out food. It is so organized and well coordinated. The people we serve are so polite and so appreciative. The LCM supports so many needs and opportunities for the Baycliff community. We have been so impressed we are planning to get more involved.

I have volunteered for LCM with food distribution, furniture moving and the new garden at the elementary school. Everyone I have interacted with has been open and very helping. The thing that has impressed me the most has been the involvement of the Baycliff community in supporting LCM like a family supports each other.

Lighthouse Christian Ministries strives to meet needs as well as empower, a wonderful combination! They meet the physical needs of health and sustenance through their medical programs and food pantry. They meet the emotional needs of their clients through their many programs that build confidence and self-reliance. Spiritually, they lift up their clients through personal prayer and support. Lighthouse is a beacon of hope in their community!

I teach in the GED classes and love seeing people identify and attain their goals. Not only do class members master lifelong knowledge in writing, math, science and social studies, but they work towards the achievement of their high school equivalency credential. In addition, students and teachers form relationships of trust, support, and respect. Finally, God's presence and support are evident in providing strength and hope.

Lighthouse offers services to address the totality of needs for clients: medical and eye clinics, food pantry, pregnancy and parenting classes, summer kids programs, mentoring, educational assistance, and more. Most importantly, all the programs at Lighthouse occur in a context of supportive relationship and personal interaction. The Christian faith of the ministry provides strength and hope. I am a volunteer with the GED tutorial program and the educational scholarship program. Both provide pathways to advancement in academic development, career opportunities and the satisfaction of personal achievement.
Every week I am blessed in seeing the smiles of students understanding a math operation or a grammatical construction. Along with achieving academic goals, the students are fulfilling lifetime personal aspirations.

I love Lighthouse Christian Ministries. My daughter hurt her shoulder and was able to see the dr. right away. They gave her a prescription and 3 days later was able to go back to work. I volunteer for Toys for Tots and the program is such a blessing. My grandchildren live with me and they were able to receive toys too. I've done the kitchen for Kidz Dayz for 3 years. This is a great program. Every 2nd Saturday they have a meal, program, give food and help you anyway you need it. Thank you for blessing so many families.

LCM has an incredible heart for the downtrodden. With a staff and volunteers who care, they do whatever it takes to help people. And they are willing to try new services, such as providing free classes to young men and women who struggle to pass the exam that tests knowledge and aptitude required for joining the US military.

The best thing about Lighthouse is the stories! Every week I get to see real lives impacted through the relationships that are being built as neighbors serve neighbors. Life transformation is happening in very real and tangible ways through the shining of Christ's love into the communities of Bacliff, Bayview, and San Leon by the folks in and around Lighthouse Christian Ministries.

Lighthouse is like a second home for me . It began as my safe haven when I was having a rough time with postpartum depression . I attended parenting classes and earned "baby bucks" for products. Being there for me out of my shell. After time passed of me attending I learned about other services such as life 101 201 & 301 and faith and finances that basically got me where I am today as one of there scholarship students. If it weren't for them I'd probably wouldn't of been able to get my life on track and find my niche. This place is so welcoming I find myself going back to volunteer so I can still feel the special feeling I get around these people and their great team. Even now when I get off track they seem to get me back where I need to be . I recently attended counseling they offered to me and their counselor Cindy they work with is awesome. I am also about to attend another course through Cindy through the lighthouse and can't wait to be back in the essence of this non profit company and the community. They offer so much that there is bound to be something there that can help you or some one you know . They are very resoursful.
