Do Something!


you ever get tired of all the talk?

Great Lakes Church exists to do more than talk about what Jesus said. We exist to do what Jesus said to do! Below you will find some of the areas we believe Jesus calls us to focus our hearts and attention on.

 “Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’" 

--Matthew 25: 34

  • Drink to the Thirsty: Build a Well Project

    Help our build a well project. Our goal this year is to raise $2,600 to partner with World Vision in the digging of a traditional well. In countries like Malawi, a well just 60 feet deep can bring new health and life to a community of 150 people. The well your gift provides will be capable of supplying more than 600 gallons of safe water a day for drinking, bathing, irrigating crops, and watering livestock.
