An Update from our Elder Board Chairman

I’ve had the honor of serving on the Board of Elders at LifePoint now for over 4 years. Over that time, I’ve served with many mighty men of God that I have learned a great deal from and who have lived their life with honor and humility before God. There is not a single exception to this among all the Elders I have served with. I am humbled to see men of God step up to the call that God has placed on their lives, serve their church and community with their time, and help lead the church with the wisdom from God Almighty.   I wanted to inform you that Keith Bray, who has served on the Elder board for a year and a half, has decided to step down as Elder at this time for personal reasons. Keith has been an integral part of the Elder board and has provided wisdom to many circumstances and has demonstrated compassion to numerous people at LifePoint and the community. Keith has a servant’s heart and truly cares about his neighbor.   Keith leaves the Elder Board on excellent terms and will continue to be an important part of the LifePoint community. If you see Keith or want to reach out to him, please thank him for his service to LifePoint!   As a Board of Elders, we are committed to seeking God first for LifePoint and our community. If any of us can serve you or pray for you in a specific way, please feel free to reach out. I would also ask for continued prayer for all Pastors and leadership at LifePoint as we navigate changing circumstances. Pray for wisdom and for an outpouring of the Holy Spirit on our community that will result in many coming to know the...

Compassion Queen Creek 2020 was a great success!

  Last Saturday was the 10th Anniversary of compassion Queen Creek. Despite the virus scare, it was a great success. The event served 300 people of the community with medical, vision & hearing appointments while the dental will set up future individual appointments at a later date. They held back from the community event due to the virus scare. On top of all these great services, many social service providers were present as well. 10 churches were a part of the event, which of course included LifePoint. There were 400 volunteers throughout the day who served everywhere from parking lot attendants to medical assistants. LifePoint volunteers served throughout that spectrum. Our biggest area LP people served was the breakfast tables that were set up at the main entrance, the volunteer check-in, and the main common area. Many filled the role of “life connector”, which is one who directs the guest to their appointments, gets to know them on a more personal level and prays for them before they move on to the many social service booths. We had others in medical as well. This was a glorious day of God’s church serving the needs of the community. All the various tribes coming together as one in Jesus’ name. All for His kingdom.   Pastor Mike Shamburg...

All Youth Worship Night 2020

Last Friday night was a great night of teens coming together to worship our Lord. There were up to 100 of them from various youth groups coming together as one and praising Jesus. This was the third annual All Youth Worship Night which was formed to bring the community youth groups together to focus on bringing the love of Christ into the darkness of our area schools. Our area is plagued annually with teen suicide that always comes near the end of the school year. We know the cure for this is the love of Christ and we are the syringes that dispense that cure to down and lost individuals. This year’s theme is 1Corinthians 13:4-8 LOVE. Between worship came conversations on God being love, we have received that love and are called to bring it to those in need…and of course, that love is patient and kind. It does not envy, boast, dishonor and is not proud or self-seeking…love never fails! If you see a teen wearing a black t-shirt with a grey “love” heart, give them a high five and encourage them to spread His love. Mike Shamburg...

Sign-ups for Spring LifeGroups have started!

Sign-ups for Spring LifeGroups have started! This is your opportunity to get connected here at LifePoint Church with fellow believers who live in the same community. They are the best place for sustained life change. They are also the best way to make a large church feel smaller and more intimate. You’ll build incredible relationships and grow in your journey with Christ. We as Pastors strongly recommend and encourage each of you to look at everything being offered this Spring! Men’s, women’s, marriage, co-ed, divorce care, and spiritual warfare are just to name a few of the groups starting the week of February 16th. For all groups head to the LifePointAZ app or come find us in the lobby this Sunday!...

Partnership with Arizona Christian University

LifePoint University is a God-given and directed vision given to the leadership at LifePoint Church several years ago and last year, the vision to take it a step higher was given. After looking around at other large churches I was convinced that God would make a way for the program to grow to something bigger than we had imagined. The model seemed to be that churches would partner with nearby Christian universities to offer credit at the university for classes taught at the church. How could we replicate that? Well, it just so happens that at one time, LifePoint had an intern who was a student at Arizona Christian University (ACU) and a thought crossed my mind: I wondered if we could partner with ACU in this way? The door was opened and over the last year we developed a Memorandum of Understanding with ACU and for the first time, we’ll be offering some of the LifePoint University classes with the ability to earn credit through ACU! Arizona Christian University is a regionally accredited university in Glendale and has been an institution of higher learning since 1960 and is focused on education and growth in Christ. We’ll be offering FOUN104—Intro to Theology and FOUN 120—Intro to Apologetics under this agreement in 2020. If students want to earn credit, there will be textbooks to purchase, quizzes, and papers to write. However, if a student does not want credit, they can attend the class as they normally would with LifePoint University. For more information come see me this Sunday!...

Step up and lead a LifeGroup

Spring LifeGroup season is right around the corner! Right now though we are in a time of prayer and fasting which often allows God to speak to us in big ways. The path He is showing you may be to step out of your comfort zone and lead. Leading a LifeGroup is often a great way to step out in faith. They are the heartbeat of LifePoint Church. Small groups create a place for fellowship, connection, and spiritual growth. This Sunday will be our second week for leader signups so if God is tugging on your heart, be bold and lead! If you have questions email blake@lifepointaz.com. Pastor Blake...

Landscaping

We have a couple who have been attending LifePoint for some time who felt that the landscaping needed a little “sprucing up.” There are trees in need of being cut back, trimming, edging, and shaping of bushes needed. The wash is in need of some more rock to make it more pleasing. After the unbelievable blessing of the turf, these congregants thought that the rest of the property needed to be improved as well, so they enlisted the help of their son who owns a landscaping company. They asked if their son would donate landscaping work for the entire 8-acre property including all of the items mentioned above, and he graciously agreed. LifePoint has had staff, volunteers, and paid help over the years the building has stood in the center of mature landscape and at no time has a more thorough beautification been accomplished. Last week, a full crew of men showed up on the campus and got to work like a team of eager worker bees! In no time at all, the campus was looking sharp, pristine, and in shape. We wanted to give a special thanks to the owner and workers at Almost Eden Landscaping for their gracious and very professional service. As if a one-time cleanup wasn’t enough, they have unbelievably agreed to KEEP COMING to maintain the property!...
