Coffee Hour Team

This team coordinates our post-service Coffee Hour. While the logistical needs are key, they’re rooted in a deeper goal to know and care for others.

Commitment: Once a month for thirty minutes before service and an hour after service.

Communion Team

Taking communion is both a physical reminder of Christ’s sacrifice for us and a celebration of God being present with us. Due to the unique nature of this integral part of our worship, servers must be formal members of LSQ. Commitment: Once a month on either the first or third Sunday for one hour before service, serving the elements during service and thirty minutes following the service.

Linq Groups

Linq Groups

Do you have a favorite hobby or interest and want to gather others to share in the fun? We believe the best way to reach those who are disconnected from the church is through existing relationships. Through a variety of cultural, educational, social and service-related activities, these groups seek to develop and strengthen relationships in an organic yet structured way, and their primary aim should be evangelistic in nature.

Our LSQ Kids ministry serves newborns through sixth graders. If you love holding babies, playing with preschoolers or engaging with elementary children, and want to help train them in a foundational gospel knowledge, we would love to have you serve in our ministry. Commitment: Once a month for 2.5 hours (serving the entire duration of the service).

Meals Ministry

Looking for a tangible and practical way to serve those in need within our church community? Help provide meals to individuals or families recovering from medical issues, personal crisis, loss or who just had a newborn baby. Whether you deliver a home-cooked meal, provide takeout or donate a gift card, this simple act of mercy demonstrates the love of Christ in a profound way.

sign up

Prayer Team

We know that God listens to the prayers of his people; and therefore, we bring all our praise, petition, confession of sin, and thanksgiving to him. The Prayer Team meets collectively for an hour before service to pray over the needs of our church, community and city. Commitment: The team meets every Sunday an hour before the start of service; thus participation can range from whenever possible (say, once a month) to more regularly.

Usher Team

Usher Team

This team plays a vital role in creating a warm, inviting atmosphere for our church family and guests to worship free of distractions. It is an ideal team for those that are cool under pressure, comfortable being front and center, capable of balancing assertiveness with graciousness, and able to stand for the entirety of the service. Commitment: Once a month for 2 hours (with a break to sit and listen to the sermon).

The arts play a big role in the life of our church, and we’d love to share that more throughout our ministries and activities.

Think special bulletin covers, Christmas cards, event photos or installations during Coffee Hour.

Sundays

We come together on Sundays to step back from the busyness and anxieties of life to bestow worth to our God. This weekly rhythm is unlike anything else: image-bearers of Christ, being together, showing each other who God is as we remember that only through him are we made new. Whether you are a seeker, skeptic, or believer we welcome you to join us Sunday.

Groups

We provide a variety of groups to cultivate both a relationship with God and others. These groups provide sanctuary from the pressures and anxieties of life in the city and facilitate the formation of new friendships. As God made us for community, we need others to help apply the gospel to our lives. We have groups that allow for people to gather outside of Sunday gatherings that are based on neighborhood, shared interests or hobbies, and life stage.

We gather to worship. What’s worship? The word “worship” comes from the Old English word “worth-ship”  to bestow worth. We come together on Sundays to step back from the busyness and anxieties of life to bestow worth to our God. We collectively offer our praises, confessions and laments while learning through the reading and teaching of the Bible what it means to follow him. This weekly rhythm is unlike anything else: image-bearers of Christ, being together, showing each other who God is as we remember that only through him are we made new. Doing this joyfully as a family is a way to fully embody what it means to be the church. Whether you are a seeker, skeptic, or believer we welcome you to join us Sunday.

Groups

Groups are for

 coffee lovers 

Part of our mission is for members of the community to be known, loved and cared for, which is why we provide a variety of groups — primarily through our Community Group network — to cultivate both a relationship with God and others. These groups provide sanctuary from the pressures and anxieties of life in the city and facilitate the formation of new friendships. CGs are places where we can be revitalized and strengthened as we seek to reflect the love of Jesus Christ to our fellow New Yorkers. As God made us for community, we need others to help apply the gospel to our lives. We have additional groups that allow for people to gather outside of CGs that are based on neighborhood, shared interests or hobbies, and life stage.

FAQs

You may have a lot of questions, and we want to give you the most updated answers to allow you to make the best decision for you when it comes to joining a group. If you have a question that’s not addressed here, please contact us.

CGs are meant to be smaller communities than a normal Sunday morning service, and thus, provide a warm space to get to know new and old friends alike, and to be known and cared for as you experience life in the city.

CGs are the heartbeat and backbone of community formation at LSQ, so we highly recommend joining one. Additional groups listed provide supplemental times of socialization and experiencing life together based on shared interests and life stage. For CGs, regular attendance is important and beneficial, so try to find a group that is convenient for you in regards to time and location. If you need further guidance, contact [email protected]

Yes, we understand that you may want to visit more than one group before deciding on the best one for you. We do recommend that you visit a group more than once before making a decision.

Please email [email protected] While our leaders do their best to contact you in a timely manner, things happen. If you have not heard back after a week, we will be happy to help contact the leader for you.

While you are free to join any CG that is convenient for you, we highly recommend joining a CG that is affiliated with your church. Instead of seeing the members of your group just once a week at CG, you will see them again at church, making a large church feel smaller.

Thank you for being interested in leading or hosting! Feel free to review this information, and email [email protected] with any questions.
