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...

Living in Faith Everyday

In the midst of COVID, and what feels like a never-ending time of isolation, momsLIFE ministry held its annual Bunco fundraiser. On Saturday, Jan. 23rd, 22 ladies attend this fabulous event. LifePoint did well to have masks available and hand sanitizer at the ready! With such a great turnout, they were able to raise funds to help sponsor several moms that could not otherwise afford the registration fees to attend momsLIFE (am or pm). Fees go towards the printing of the curriculum, crafts, and other items used during their meetings. We want to thank everyone that came out to participate in a night of laughter and fellowship. – momsLIFE ministry If you would like to know more about getting involved in momsLIFE, see our website at https://lifepointaz.com/moms/...

Our Team

Hi, my name is Tim Ferrara and I am the new Executive Pastor at LifePoint Church. I want to give you a brief overview of who I am and what the Executive Pastor does. I’ve lived in Arizona most of my life, technically born in Minnesota and moved here when I was five. I graduated from Arizona State for my bachelor’s degree and University of Phoenix for my MBA. I grew up in the church, my Dad was a Pastor and I have been involved in serving in multiple ways in the church over the years. My career has focused on business and I have worked for over 20 years in retail management. I am married to my wonderful wife Jamie and we have two children, Josiah and Abigail. We have been attending LifePoint for over 7 years. Jamie serves in the kids and leads MomsLife PM. I have been on the Elder board at LifePoint for 5 years. God put full-time ministry on my heart over two years ago but I did not know what that looked like at the time. I started an online ministry called Discerning Dad which started as a blog. God has blessed that and has allowed me to write a book and start a podcast called Everyday Discernment. When Pastor Nathan presented the opportunity of Executive Pastor about 6 months ago, it led to a long process of trying to hear from God and make sure it was His will for our life. After multiple confirmations and peace with the decision, I said yes and I am embarking on this new phase in my life. I am honored and humbled by the opportunity and I am excited for what God is doing at LifePoint and how He can use me to continue to accomplish...
