We currently meet at the Ramada Conference Center at the corner of Canal & Saginaw Hwy. in Lansing, MI. We have one service at 10:30am on Sunday mornings.
Impact Community Church was founded in 2015. We leased an old bank building in the heart of downtown Grand Ledge, MI. We started with a group of 20 people – children and adults and held our first official service on Sunday, March 22 nd , 2015 with 121 people in attendance. Our record attendance to date is 168 people and our weekly average is 75 people.
Impact Church has purposed to be different than the stereotypical church. So many people will not step foot inside the “traditional” church because of experiences they have had. Many won’t step into a church because they feel like they must be “fixed” first.
How can we help each other if we are not real about what we need help with? To many people are sitting in church like they have it all together. The reality is so many are dealing with deep depression, anger issues, fractured and failing marriages, heavy addictions, or financial chaos. They may genuinely want help, but do not sense that many in the church are being genuine with struggles they may also be having.
At Impact, we have created a, “Come as you are, not as you think you should be” atmosphere. As Pastor, I am very honest about my shortcomings. I may be “called”, but I am still a huge lump of human flesh, daily trying to be a little more like Jesus. It is ONLY by His grace that I am saved. “There is nothing we can do to make Him love us less, and nothing we can do to make Him love us more.”
Every week we hear someone say that they would never have stepped into a “normal” church again. But Impact feels like home to them. Every Sunday the Spirit of God is palpable. We have such a broad range of people. From high level business professionals to recovering addicts. And they are sitting at the same table with each other, sharing life together. It is humbling to be a part of what God has done in the short two years at Impact. He is very much on the move and we are blessed to be part of it.
Impact Church exists to do whatever it takes to reach people far from God with the love of Jesus.
We are not afraid to do things that no one else is doing to reach people no one else is reaching.
We See a Church that will do nothing short of sin to reach the lost and hurting.
We See a Church that is not about us, but is here to make Jesus famous.
We See a Church that inspires people to learn and live the example of Christ. We believe that true change will come when people see an honest image of Jesus’ life and teaching through scripture and the lives of His disciples.
We See a Church that equips believers and values biblical teaching. We believe that the truth of Scripture is relevant and transcends time and culture.
We See a Church that cares passionately for the lost, the hurting, and those in spiritual, relational, emotional and physical need. We believe it is our responsibility to lead both in our community and throughout the world.
We See a Church that is driven by God’s vision that together we can share the good news of Jesus Christ with a hurting world, regardless of social status, ethnicity or faith background.
We See a Church where people can find loving, authentic community. We believe that the church should be the best place to build honest and encouraging relationships that speak, share and seek to live out God’s truth.
