Unsung Heroes,

We are proud to have an amazing church filled with many amazing and talented people. As with any great cause, the work of Legacy Life Church is completed week in and week out by many unsung heroes.

Each week and month dozens of volunteers gather for many various functions; from cleaning the auditorium and decorating the hallways to maintaining computer systems and creating lesson plans. The culmination of these efforts leads to successful events at the church.

Thank you for all you do.
