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.
I was in a situation with many obstacles stacked against me. Lighthouse Christian Ministries helped me get into school and is sticking with me through the end to help me continue to be successful. I dont know what I would have done with out them! Erika, my mentor Dalayna and the whole LCM have been such a blessing!
Lighthouse Christian Ministries is a key player in changing lives in the Galveston Bay Area. Through a community of volunteers Lighthouse is able to offer programs for short-term financial assistance, food insecurity setbacks, basic health /dental care, and educational opportunities (GED program, Community College entrance, Parenting Classes, etc). Each year Lighthouse holds a community fundraiser in which the increasing accomplishments are highlighted as well as bringing attention to areas in need of future volunteers and community involvement. The leadership team at Lighthouse is dedicated to leading clients, as well as staff, in following Christ through faith and accountability partners. This is an organization based on teaching low-income, disadvantaged individuals and families how to be more self sufficient while at the same time giving back once your circumstances improve.
I am working with Lighthouse Christian Ministries to help set up a community garden to provide food and education to the area of Bacliff. The organization is well run by people who love and serve their community. They are dedicated to the improvement of people's lives by helping them temporarily with basic needs and long term with education, job placement, spiritual guidance and mentoring. When we need materials or volunteers for the garden, the staff at Lighthouse Christian Ministries is quick to respond. It is not an exaggeration to say they know everyone in the area and they give us a name to help us. I also volunteer at the food distribution they organize sponsored by the Houston Food Bank. I pull one of the wagons around helping individuals get their generous supply of fresh meat and produce. The food allocation is done with such respect and love for the receiving families that I feel I am at a family reunion. I recently helped with Lighthouse Christian Ministries' version of vacation bible school which lasted every week day in July. Daily, close to 100 children were fed physically and spiritually with songs, games, talks, and crafts. The kids painted garden signs for us to identify produce in the garden beds and made a garden banner with their hand prints as leaves on a tree. Again, the children were loved and cared for by people who were like family. I love working with this organization because their clients are not just numbers but neighbors who are loved and served as if Christ were among them.
I have volunteered with LCM for a few years! They are really on mission to help the people of their community by providing education assistance, medical and dental care, and much more!
