Lighthouse Ministries strives to support families by walking alongside the youth in our Southeast Canton community by offering safe, high-quality, and holistic opportunities to assist them in understanding their God-given giftedness and potential for impacting the world around them. As an organization, the Lighthouse has focused on identifying community needs and launching programs that enhance the well-being of neighborhood families in an effort to best represent the Kingdom of God.
The Lighthouse first launched in the fall of 1996, when several members in the congregation discerned the need for a new way for the church to invest in the children and youth in our neighborhood beyond First Mennonite’s already existing programs. For the next 10 years, it existed as a program of First Mennonite Church, but became it’s own non-profit organization in 2007. Today, the two work together closely to provide age appropriate opportunities for our neighborhood.
