Diaconal & Community Ministries
The Strategy for Local Ministry and Mission is to empower those we serve, to advocate with and for those in need, to network and form partnerships with agencies beyond the church, to shape public policy as it pertains to the common good, and to facilitate opportunities for our congregation to participate in missional activities in our city.
  • Empowerment Our ministries empower people by providing: food, access to healthcare, employment opportunities, social services and case management, legal assistance, counseling and prayer, and opportunities for spiritual growth.
  • Advocacy for those in need—By networking with community coalitions, legal aid groups, and health agencies we can address the income, housing and health needs of the poor in our community.
  • Networks and partnerships with agencies beyond the church—We increase the effectiveness of our ministry and service through partnerships. For example, through our Hollywood Healthcare Partnership we have established relationships with QueensCare, the LA County Departments of Public Health and Mental Health which provides a way for us to connect people to local health care.
  • Facilitating opportunities for our members to participate in missional activities—These activities provide opportunities to meet new people, build relationships, listen to and observe the needs in our community, learn about our ministry context, and work together to strengthen the wellbeing of our community.

Weekly schedule for the services offered by DCM:

Services are held on the Upper Terrace, which is our community ministry area:
  • The Lord’s Lighthouse Ministry (Sunday): A church family with the poor.
