At LCI a commitment to Social Justice is one of our core values and a way in which we share Christ's light daily. Here are some of the ministries we are engaged in (full list under construction).
Home Building Mission To Mexico
LCI has partnered with Amor Ministries since 1993 to build homes in Tijuana Mexico for families in need.
Amor Ministries' primary goal is to provide adequate shelter so that families can stay together and build a foundation for their futures. Amor strives to show God's love through tangible acts of service and it is the goal of the LCI Mission Team to do the same.
Over the course of a one week volunteer commitment, the team builds a simple home for a low income family. Families apply for homes and then need is prioritized by a board of local community pastors. Join us in this ministry of sweat, hard work and love by contributing to the Mexico Mission trip or joining our building team.

Race & Faith Adult Forums
We meet on the first Sunday of the month at 9:30 a.m. in the church library to learn about how issues of race intersect with our faith. More details can be found here.
Interfaith Rotating Winter Shelter
The Interfaith Rotating Winter Shelter (IRWS) is an interfaith organization tasked with sheltering the homeless during the winter season in Davis. The IRWS non- profit screens potential guests and provides a cot and sleeping bag. The cots and bags move from congregation to congregation as the shelter "rotates". Congregations share their fellowship spaces with the homeless for 1 or more weeks at a time and provide a nutritious hot dinner as well as a carry and go breakfast each day.
For the winter of 2019-2020, the shelter will be open 12/1/19 through 3/14/20. LCI partners with the Davis United Methodist Church to provide services at DUMC. This year, our joint congregations will be hosting 2/16- 2/23/20. Signups to assist in driving guests to and from "Guest Intake" and the shelter, donating and preparing food and providing hospitality to our guests will start mid January 2020.
You can also contribute to this ministry financially by noting IRWS in the comment section of your LCI giving.
