Lily Kelly Ministries’ sole mission is to serve others by sharing the Good News of God’s love, hope and forgiveness through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. We seek to be vessels used for the tangible others-focused love, kindness, stewardship, peacemaking and service as illustrated by Jesus our Savior – one person at a time.
Lord, help me be a light to all I come in contact with help me shine Your light the goodness of what You are.
Invitation to Pray
We invite you FIRST to come alongside us in prayer. We seek God’s wisdom, clarity, direction, guidance, and perfect will, knowing that where He leads – He will provide all that is required to accomplish His plans. We desire to be used FULLY for His purpose, in complete surrender to His providential plan for His Kingdom-work laid out for us.
God I want Your plan for my life.
You have the perfect plan,
I just pray You will give me wisdom and strength to follow where
Your plan takes me and has in store.
To further the LKM ministry more tangibly, directly-serving our community – one person at a time.

The passer-by who may stumble upon our venue and needs encouragement and prayer welcomed here to find solace, comfort, and welcoming smiles. The more schedule-minded guest in need of council may plan ahead to meet with staff leadership as well. The chapel will serve to foster and deepen each guests relationship with Jesus Christ as we facilitate resources for their individual needs, offer small group meetings such as, youth group, young adult ministries as well as other demographic groups such as men’s groups, women’s groups, young parents etc. Music lessons will be held here, a key element to our ministry in Lily Kelly’s honor.

God Makes Possible
But Jesus looked at them and said,
“With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”
Matthew 19:26 HCSB
All Things In Abundance
God is able to make it up to you by giving you everything you need and more so that there will not only be enough for your own needs but plenty left over to give joyfully to others.

To Those Who Give Freely
One person gives freely, and yet his wealth increases, another withholds what is right, only to become poor.
More to the Story
My late daughter, Lily Kelly and I traveled by this charming chapel regularly. She loved Old Town Murrieta and its delightful charm – seeking daily for us to take the “long way home”, a 20-minute extension to our 6-minute commute. We were particularly taken with this precious chapel, and the sign proudly displayed in front, “Jesus Loves You”
Lily Kelly was called Home to Heaven last June 1st, at the hands of a drunk driver, she was only 15 years old. Her hearts desire was to live deeply surrendered to her Savior, intimately devoted to her relationship with Jesus Christ and to further share Him with everyone she met – that they too would know His abundant love, peace and joy.
Since her call Home, we have created the Lily Kelly Ministries foundation, a non-profit 501C3 organization to continue Lily Kelly’s work and build upon her legacy – to lavishly share Christ’s love with everyone. Our sole mission is to spread the Gospel of Jesus and the freedom, hope, love and joy that comes through a life surrendered to Him – just as Lily Kelly did.
This property will serve as our ministry headquarters outpost. A place in the heart of our community rooted in Christ Jesus’s love to grow our ministry more tangibly. We seek to offer our community a safe and welcoming place to come, enjoy light fare, good company and experience the love of Jesus Christ – our community serving our community.
Our community youth and young adults rank as our key targeted demographic. They are a large focus of our existing ministry and will remain a growing emphasis on the new Chapel Coffee Campus as well. The campus will serve as a safe place to come, hang out, stay late, to enjoy friends and community, as well as employment and training opportunities.
I believe the Holy Spirit led Lily and me to this chapel property, just as He did with her now – resting place. She and I found the little cemetery on Ivy along our journey through Old Town. We sat together atop the hill overlooking our picturesque valley below. One could say that we found her resting place together, led by the Holy Spirit.
I humbly ask for your serious consideration to invest your treasure in Heaven – right here on earth.
Please give as your heart leads you, doing so joyfully.
The Lords vision for this project & property is for ALL to have investment here,
deeply rooted in Jesus Christ love, & expressed tangibly through each of YOU.
Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths & vermin destroy, & where thieves break in & steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths & vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. Matthew 6:19-21
To Send Donations
Give, and you will receive. Your gift will return to you in full—pressed down, shaken together to make room for more, running over, and poured into your lap. The amount you give will determine the amount you get back. Luke 6:38NLV
