Rapid Response Team!
We are creating a group of people that would be able to quickly respond to needs in our community. These needs may be anything like; changing a tire, helping with repairs, fixing a furnace, cleaning up water in the basement, chopping up a tree. Or even something as simple as giving someone a ride to work because their car wouldn't start. There are many different needs, and we want you to be apart of this team!

Corporate Partner - $2,500 a year ($625/quarter).  This level would earn the partner mention at all REAL Life Community Events, name/logo listed on the event sponsor list, name/logo displayed on our website, and reserved table at each banquet.

Mental Health & Wellness Night Video Teaser

Anxiety. Depression. Stress. Peer Pressure. How can you help your child navigate these challenges? Join Dr. Doug Friesen, Licensed Psychologist, and other area pastors, parents and educators at our upcoming free seminar - Parenting for Mental Health & Holistic Growth - and ask all the questions you want!

Wondering - how do I help my child flourish in a competitive world? 

This LM Parent Seminar and Q&A panel of mental health professionals, educators, pastors, and parents will discuss and wrestle with questions that parents have about how we can cultivate a climate of mental health and holistic growth for our students, specifically related to factors that are contributing to increased anxiety and depression.

Parent & Staff Panel Discussion Questions:
  • How can I help mitigate the pressures my child faces - ie. to achieve, to specialize prematurely, to fit in, to stand out, and FOMO (Fear of Missing Out)?
  • What practices have been beneficial in your family or for families you work with?
  • What can I do as a parent to promote positive mental health for my child? 

Join Us Near You - 3 Session Dates & Locations:
All seminars are free and open to the public. You are encouraged to bring friends with you, even those that don't attend LM schools!

open house jan 2020


We hope you will join us at an open house at one of our three campuses to experience the caring, diverse community and unique programs that represent the LM difference! Join us Jan 23, 5:45-7:00 PM - more information by clicking the link below.
