Our New Church Name

Our New Church Name

Church Familia,


Over three years ago, two churches united under one roof with the dream of making a greater impact for Jesus in our community for generations to come. Today, this dream is a reality. God has blessed our church. We have grown, we are expanding, and we have discovered that we truly are “better together.”


We recently completed a teaching series in the Book of Acts titled “The Local Church” and announced that we will be publicly changing the name of our church from Calvary Lighthouse United to The Local Church effective Easter Sunday, 2019. We have prayed and planned, along with our entire leadership team and Board of Directors, and we believe that now is the time. We simply want to be known as a local church that loves and serves our community for Jesus, just like the local church in the New Testament.


While we will always honor our past, we will also keep moving forward. This is a new name for a new season. This is our next step. Nothing else has changed. Our vision remains the same. Our values remain the same. Our beliefs remain the same. We will have the same great worship, the same great team, the same great ministry partnerships, relationships, and the same great church.


We are humbled and honored to serve this church and our South Florida community. We are excited to see all that God has already done, and even more excited to see all that God is yet to do!
