Unity

This last weekend LifePoint brought 125 women up to Lost Canyon Camp in Williams, AZ. What a fabulous weekend! We joined with 5 other churches to make up a grand total of 351 women at this retreat! Many women had fun hiking, taking trips to town, braving the giant swing, soaking in the sunshine and cool breezes and simply getting some wonderful rest, but the most incredible element of this weekend was the unity we saw in this group of women from all different churches was just stunning. We battled together, cried together, sang together, and celebrated together. Unity of the body of Christ is the...


Your generosity at work

The demographics of our church is such that we were in need of more handicap accessible parking. Many weeks, people in need are forced to park on the back side of the church which is a further distance and not as safe to get across. On top of this, we had received regular grievances about obstruction of sidewalk accessibility caused by cars pulling all the way up to the sidewalk, leaving the front end of the car covering a large portion of the sidewalk. Because of your generous giving, we are able to make improvements to the building and grounds. We have added five extra handicap...


The Benefits of a Large Mission Team

Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine according to His power that is at work within us” (Ephesians 3:20). When God places a call upon your heart, it is often difficult to determine how one person could be effective alone in their calling or gifting. But as we know, God has a plan and His plan is often much bigger than we could ever imagine. When His plan involves pulling the body of Christ together to do His great work, God’s plan becomes unstoppable. If you are given the opportunity to live out your calling and share...


Work as Worship Retreat

The Work As Worship Retreat was hosted this past Friday at LifePoint and our decent turnout got to hear from some great speakers who offered a good array of insight into making all of our work worship. Obviously, Francis Chan as the headline speaker offered fantastic biblical proof showing that our all our work, even if not in vocational ministry, is part of how God made us. Chan read from Psalm 90 and asked the question: if we only had 15 minutes left on Earth, what would we say? What would we do? The next most impactful speaker allowed us to see economy and work from...


Compassion Queen Creek Breakfast

Last Saturday was the annual Compassion Queen Creek event. This is put on by the local Christian churches, organizations and businesses which is equal to over 300 volunteers. It is free dental, vision and health care for anyone in need along with a social service fair which over 300 guests participated in. On top of all of this is free hair-cuts, massages, manicures, food & toiletry bags, clothing and much more. Hundreds of volunteers prepare months in advance, set up on Friday night at Combs Middle School and show up bright and early Saturday morning to serve their neighbors. This year, LifePoint provided breakfast for the...


Marriage Mentoring

The marriage mentoring team has completed their training! This has been a vision of LifePoint’s marriage leadership team for awhile now and it’s amazing to see it coming to fruition. God has big plans to strengthen marriages into that covenant bond we so much desire with our spouse. Marriage mentoring isn’t just for couples who are struggling, but for newlyweds looking to start strong and build a solid foundation, and for couples looking to go from a good marriage to a great one. We will follow biblically based principles and use materials that have been proven to be effective in helping create and sustain a healthy...


Daughter’s of the King Ladies Tea

The Daughter’s of the King Ladies Tea was hosted by Women of Life on Saturday, February 9th. This amazing event was attended by almost 200 moms, daughters, grandmothers, aunts, and friends of all ages. This annual event is a great way to fellowship with other LifePoint ladies but also brings in many people from the community who may not be saved. Ladies enjoyed an amazing time of tea and fellowship. The worship time was Spirit-led and brought much-needed refreshment to the soul. There was lots of fun as prizes were awarded and money was raised for the women’s retreat scholarship fund.  The highlight of the day...

All Youth Worship Night happened again this year and was a great night of “The Church” youth coming together and praising Jesus.

They came to raise up the name of Jesus while the message inspired them to Ignite the Fire inside of themselves. To live boldly for their Lord. To go into their homes, community & schools with the word of God. Not to be ashamed of Jesus but to boldly proclaim His name. 2911 Church led the high energy worship which including one song, In God We Trust, from...

God Is At Work In The Philippines!

What a blessing to have such a generous congregation that call LifePoint, their church home! Recently we received a picture of our long term Philippine Missionary Trish VanAlstyne siting on her brand new scooter that the congregation provided the funds to purchase. What a blessing as she is now mobile and can accomplish more ministry in a shorter period of time because she can get there!!! Thank you!! Speaking of Ministry being accomplished in the Philippines, we received word from Trish that 10 of the children from the Father’s House Orphanage were recently baptized. In Ministry often it is difficult to ever measure if you are...
