The 5th annual LifePoint Outdoors 'Tents N Trailers' camping trip

The 5th annual LifePoint Outdoors ‘Tents N Trailers’ camping trip is in the books. For the third year in a row, we have visited the wonderful Apache Trout campground at Big Lake in Greer, AZ. We had over 100 people (mostly kids) take part in what was an incredible weekend. While there was plenty of time for rest and relaxation, we stayed busy with several activities including a nature hike along a stream at sheep’s crossing, a cornhole tournament, and a water gunfight. One of the coolest experiences was the boys and girls separated for a time of mentoring and fellowship. The girls learned about campfire safety and made friendship bracelets. The boys learned how to shoot bow and arrow, throw hatchets and chop wood. Every night there was time for worship and a devotional which led to an amazing time in God’s presence, and an incredible time of fellowship and bonding. In the end, God showed us Acts 4:32 which says “All the believers were one in heart and mind. No one claimed that any of their possessions was their own, but they shared everything they had”. Everyone was sharing food, supplies, blankets, and more without even thinking twice. Everyone was lending a hand with watching kids, doing trash runs, fixing trailers, and leading groups. This weekend was a small, yet beautiful picture of how God intended Christian community to look like and I pray we continue this back here in the valley under the power of the Holy Spirit.   Blake Wilsford Associate Pastor...

YouthLife Recap

It has been another outrageous year of God working in young people’s lives through our children’s and youth ministry. We have had several new believers through the season and adding baptism to Wednesday nights in 2021 was a great success as well. The number of kids declaring their lives for Christ literally doubled each month. We had a great swarm of unchurched, neighbor kids come to check us out and ended up being drawn in by the Holy Spirit. They are seeking the unconditional love of Jesus to enter into their lives. Lives that are full of darkness and despair, in a world that is becoming more and more confusing as the days pass on. There’s food on Wednesday nights which is a big draw. It also provides for some a meal for their evening which they would not have without it. Along with the blessing of students, we have had a great blessing of new leaders as well, from small group leaders to teachers and we are adding a new director as well. Josh Winters has been assisting me in the junior high ministry and will now become our Jr. High Director. I hand him the reigns! He comes with youth leader experience and a strong desire to minister to the needs of teens. The additional leaders added this year have been such a blessing. We were able to return to having “small group” sessions after the lessons for a more intimate conversation over the topic at hand & topics that were pertinent to their lives during that week. If you are feeling God’s calling to either youth or children’s ministry, we have room for you as well. Simply contact me mike@lifepointaz.com. We will be starting up the new midweek season on August 4th. I can’t wait to see...

KidzLife/YouthLife Ministries

The Holy Spirit has been doing some great work in our children’s and youth ministries in this new year. We have had a big jump in new students coming on Wednesday nights. They have been drawn in by their churched friends, those sweet little evangelists! Lives are being changed and hearts are being healed. God has blessed us with a great group of reliable, youth-loving leaders as well, who have been pouring into these young lives. If the Holy Spirit has been nudging you to join in with any of these age groups, 4-6 grade, junior high, or high school, we always have room for you. We have started up baptisms as well on the last Wednesday of the month and those have been multiplying as well. Just this last week eleven youth, ranging from 4th grade to high school, proclaimed their faith in Christ through baptism. Our lobby was filled with proud parents, family, friends, and a whole bunch of their peers cheering them on as they individually committed to being held accountable to their faith. God has been blessing the ministries of LifePoint and it’s been a glorious ride with Him. We only have three more weeks left and on to summer camp to watch Him do some more awesome work with our students. Pastor Mike...

Covenant Re-Cap

Last Sunday we had about 125 people attend the Covenant Q&A session with some great questions! We were so happy to see everyone who attended and who has stepped into a covenant relationship with LifePoint Church. This church is God’s church. . . it does not belong to the pastors, elders, or those who call LifePoint home—we are merely stewards of what God is doing. Most of the questions were technical-related questions with a few about the content of the covenant document itself. If you have watched the Covenant Training Series on RightNowMedia you have no doubt experienced some technical difficulties and as of this past Wednesday, they have assured us they are listening and working on the problems. One of those problems is that “LIFEPOINT CHURCH” is listed under your library on the website but not on the mobile versions! It is before their tech teams and they’re working on it!! If you haven’t watched the videos yet and plan to you can find them on RightNowMedia and coming soon: they’ll be on the LifePointAZ.com website. Once you have completed the series, please let us know so we can set you up with a pastor meeting, prayer time, and Q&A session. Please let us know when you have watched the videos or if you have questions about the covenant process through our email: covenant@lifepointaz.com God bless! Chad Roche...

Some Kind of Point: The SLAM!

Last week we had over 100 students from fourth grade to high school seniors attend The SLAM! This was an event originally scheduled for last June but you may all be aware of things of this world during that time. So YouthLife leaders made it into a Spring Break event. There was food every night along with Laser Tag, a scavenger hunt, and dodgeball played in soapy suds on the grass…which was spread everywhere! And it was AWESOME! We had nightly worship and a wonderful, deep lesson and conversation wrapped around our far too forgotten part of the trinity, the Holy Spirit. We used Christ in Youth’s program material mixed with our own talents which made each night an opportunity to advance young people’s relationships with God. Though only He knows what took place in each individual’s heart, I can tell you from interactions and comments I have received from students, parents, and grandparents, it was a great success. This size of event could not have taken place without a plethora of volunteers and that is exactly what we had. Great examples of service were these diligent leaders to the students, filling double duty throughout the nights. They went from passing out food to leading young troops in Laser Tag Capture the Flag and heavily saturating themselves in soapy bubbles and dead grass to facilitating personal, developing conversations as small group leaders. A big shout out to Matthew for leading the 456 KidzLife group through the week and our co-teachers Josh and Nate who after running around setting up games came in to teach later that night. Again, the volunteers were the backbone of this event and I can’t thank you enough for all the hard work you put in. Some coming early to help set up and others staying...

Couples Date Night was Awesome!

It was so awesome to see all of the couples out on Friday evening March 5th for LifePoint Date Night! Many took advantage of the free childcare as we had over 55 kids being watched while couples went out and enjoyed a nice quiet evening. I heard a great quote from Tim Ross who said, “you don’t date to marry, you marry to date”. Dating shouldn’t stop once we’re married, but instead, increase! It’s a lifelong journey getting to know your spouse. I also want to encourage all of you to jump on the marriage prayer journey with myself and my wife Lindsay, where we are encouraging couples to be praying FOR and WITH each other. Let’s be praying together as couples as well as going out on dates often! You can check out those devotionals on our Facebook page. God bless and take care! Pastor Blake...

ACCO prayer night recap

On Friday night February 26th several churches gathered for a night of prayer. It was such a powerful time as believers linked arms to pray for over so many areas where prayer is needed. We were blessed by the presence of the Holy Spirit as we covered anxiety, depression, relationships, marriages, boldness, youth, our community, state, and nation. God is on the move! The next prayer night is Friday, March 26th at 7pm at Amadeo Church. Hope to see you there!...

Blood Drive Results

Sponsoring blood drives is one way LifePoint Church can show our love and support for the community and also give people the opportunity to visit us and feel comfortable coming here. Thank you for 21 successful blood donations on February 1st at the first of two February blood drives at LifePoint Church! The donation goal was 18. It is helpful for the area blood supply to meet and exceed the forecast. Vitalant is the sole blood provider for Banner Ironwood, Banner Casa Grande, and every hospital in Maricopa County. The February 20th drive has been canceled but if you would like to donate you can do so at the San Tan Valley Veteran’s Center on March 8th. Information in the flyer below.

Bike Blessing Praise Report

On behalf of Black Sheep all over the country, and more specifically here in Arizona, we want to thank everyone that came out to our first annual Black Sheep Bike Blessing & Show! It was definitely a successful community event! We had approximately 250 people attend the show and enjoy all the booths. The line for face painting never ceased and the raffles drew in some great excitement! We also enjoyed music by DJ M-Cat, corn-hole, Gaga ball, street tacos from Habaneros, hotdogs from Alpha Dogs, as well as snow cones from Desert Relief. A big thank you to all of them and those that helped make this event happen. The winner of the Bike Show, Levi A., rode in on a 1993 Harley Davidson FXR with an American WW2 era bomber theme. It was a beauty! This wasn’t just a Black Sheep event though. We saw God’s vision for this event come into full view with riders from all over the state! In addition to our Black Sheep friends and family, we saw members of Christian Motorcycles Association and the Legions Riders Post 97 as well. A special thank you to all those that prayed and blessed the riders and bikes, as that was our focus for the event. We thank God for the beautiful weather and again, thanks to all who came out for a good time! Veronica Thiele, Missions Director...
