Youth Update

YouthLife started up again on Wednesday night. 100 plus students swarmed the church grounds with the excitement of getting back together with friends and building themselves up in God’s word. The age groups vary from 4th grade all the way up to seniors in high school. YouthLife is a beacon of light in our neighborhood and a great midweek program that draws in the neighborhood kids. It is a highlight to their week and a blessing to their parents. There are fun and silliness, games, worship, age-relatable lessons, and time to discuss both topics learned and situations happening in their lives. We have an army of volunteers to pull this all off and encourage you to come be part of the work God is doing. We can always use more pre-teen/teen-loving hearts to come alongside and encourage them in the ways of the Lord. You will be truly blessed! Pastor Mike...

All-Church Prayer night

This Friday, July 30th, from 7p-8p is our monthly All-Church Prayer night and this month it is at LifePoint Church. This prayer night occurs the last Friday of every month with ACCO churches. ACCO stands for Association of Christian Churches and Organizations and consists of churches from San Tan Valley and Queen Creek. Prayer is a necessary component for our Christian walk and we have to build a foundation on prayer in our daily lives. It’s been amazing to see churches come together in unity for these nights. Can you commit an hour of your time for coming together in prayer? Mark your calendars and set a reminder for this awesome time of unity in the body of Christ as we pray for our communities, churches, and nation. I’ll see you then! Tim Ferrara...

Exciting launch coming soon!

One of the things we are working on here at LifePoint Church is rolling out a new data management software that will have some direct benefits to everyone in the church and not just leadership. CCB (Church Community Builder) is the software and it is from PushPay which also supports our giving platform and our LifePointAZ app. Some of the benefits that CCB will provide are: More accurate information that is managed directly you! Upload a photo to your profile (it will make it that much easier to remember names!) Find groups to join- whether it’s a class, LifeGroup, or a service team, groups allow others to join and also interact Serve in a way that works for you- looking for a place to contribute your time and talent? CCB allows you to browse open positions, set your availability, or find a replacement if you can’t serve Stay in touch better with your specific ministry team, leadership, or LifeGroup through advanced messaging options directly in the CCB software or the LifePointAZ app What do you need to do now? Not much, but please make sure you have the LifePointAZ app downloaded and that notifications are turned ON. Stay tuned for more info about the CCB rollout, hopefully at the beginning of August for further instructions on how login and customize your profiles. Tim Ferrara Executive Pastor...

Youth Leader Changes

Technically these changes were initiated at the beginning of this year but now are officially in place. Nate McBride and Josh Winters have assumed the roles of Director of High School and Director of Jr. High, respectively. Nate had been leading Sunday morning’s Abide (high school Bible study) for quite some time already and speaking semi-regularly at our YouthLife midweek program. He has a great heart for students and their individual walks with God. Josh comes to us with past experience to take on our junior high students. He had teamed up with me back in January on Wednesday nights, taking over half the lessons and getting to know the students. He has been a great addition to the youth department and will now be responsible for all things junior high. Like Nate, Josh has a strong desire to help youth grow in their walks with God. As you will see on the picture wall in the lobby, Nate and Josh are now on staff and we look forward to all God will do through them and their ministries. Be sure to welcome them aboard! I am still the pastor over the youth and children’s department and having said THAT! …we are always in need of volunteers for the children’s department. From infants to 6th graders, we need small group leaders, teachers, tech people, and overall people with loving hearts for children. Likewise, our youth midweek program starts up again on August 4th and we would love to have you come alongside and assist in being a small group leader for these students as well. The age range is 4th grade to high school seniors. Come join us in any of these three midweek ministries, 456, Jr High or High School. Experience being blessed beyond words as you bless pre-teens...

Financial Update

I’ve had the honor of being Executive Pastor here at LifePoint for five months now and I am extremely excited for what’s to come.  As a church, we are able to be in a position of strength going into the rest of the year with the focus on continuing the mission God has given us.  We have some exciting things in the works for not only upgrades to our campus but also possible expansion and strategic partnerships. God has blessed us immensely, especially coming out of a year like 2020 which was difficult on both businesses and individuals alike.  We could only be doing what we are doing this year because of your faithful response to God by giving to LifePoint.  We, as a church, continue to give above and beyond 10 percent of our finances to outreach both locally and abroad.  It is my responsibility as Executive Pastor to make sure that we are being good stewards as a church with all money that comes in, which means I am constantly comparing our reports to the budget and getting rid of unnecessary expenses. With that said, I would like to remind you that we usually see a dip in giving during the summer for various reasons.  Our offerings received so far for Jan-April this year were 345K on a budget of 366K.  Please be in prayer of how you can continue to support the work we are doing at LifePoint so that we can come out of the summer strong and ready to take on the fall when we increase our activities again.  If there’s ever an additional offering you would like put towards a particular ministry or project we are working on please let me or Pastor Nathan know.   Thank you again for your continued faithfulness and...

FUSD Partnership

LifePoint and Florence Unified School District are at it again! For the past few years, we have partnered with FUSD to hand out breakfasts and lunches to the families in Copper Basin. Last year we even handed out meals for the entire summer at the beginning of the pandemic which was a lot of work but very rewarding. This is an opportunity for the neighborhood to see us giving back and partnering with the schools with a simple focus: serving and caring for our neighbors. This year is a little bit different. We’ll be distributing meals (breakfast and lunch) for the entire week but only one day a week! Starting June 1, we’ll set up our drive-thru service at the backdoor on the side of the building facing the school. Then we’ll do it again every Monday in June for the month. We need you to help us out! This is only about a two-hour commitment ONCE A WEEK so c’mon, let’s do this! Click HERE to sign up If you have any questions, please reach out!
