FUSD Partnership

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!

What will you be doing in 18 weeks?

What will you be doing in 18 weeks?

18 weeks. From one perspective it can fly by. Think about what you did 18 weeks ago. 18 weeks ago we were just coming into Jan 2021. We had no clue what awaited us. How can it already be May where the summer is looming? In contrast, 18 weeks from now, to those that are waiting, can feel like an eternity. In 18 weeks we will be sending off a group of 12 to Vicente Guerrero, BC, Mexico. 18 weeks, for them, feels endless. They have been called to serve the young children of the local migrant communities and for many, this is a completely new path. They are anxious, excited, and maybe even a bit scared at what awaits. What stands between them and their goal, besides the obvious time? It’s simple. They need resources. In order to serve the children and community, the team needs to provide shoes, socks, and funds for travel. These aren’t just normal shoes though! We’ve partnered with My360project to provide shoes that actually grow with the children! Can you believe it, shoes that grow with the child for up to 2 years? These incredible shoes were designed and created by Darryl Carnley and a former designer at Nike. The two men partnered to create this innovative shoe. Our team must raise enough funds to bring 20 pairs of shoes per team member (equivalent to $700). In addition to the shoes they are providing, we want each child to receive a clean, new pair of socks and a New Testament Bible in their own language. LifePoint Church has generously agreed to purchase the Bibles. The cost of going on the mission trip is $850 per person. This is in addition to the $700 worth of shoes each team member would need. This brings the...

Know your Foundation

Know your Foundation

Last week we began a small series on unity in the church and will continue that series this week as we wait for the 4th episode of The Chosen to come out on May 11th. On Sunday, I asked you to consider if the unity of the church is as important to you as knowing truth. There is always such a great emphasis on have the “correct” theology but little care about what divisions exist in the church. As I talked about the heart of the Father for unity amongst His bride, I shared how we need to allow humility and empathy to reign in our hearts and minds when listening, working with, and engaging with other believers. With all that said, this is not to say we do not stand for truth, even if it will cause a fight, that we do not expel the wicked one from amongst us, as we are told to do in 1 Corinthians. How do we do this and maintain unity? First of all, we need to establish what the reasons for expelling someone from the church were in the Old Testament, second, we need to understand the hearts of the ones doing the work of expulsion, third, we must recognize the Father’s heart for all His children, those who have gone astray and those whose hearts are filling with selfish pride for having obeyed. This is not easy. This will not be cut and dry, with us handing you a little laminated note card for you to carry around and make sure that when someone disagrees with you, you have the right to tell them off or just accept them. We are meant to wrestle with these things, we are meant to go before the Lord and continually ask for wisdom. If...

KidzLife/YouthLife Ministries

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

United We Stand

United We Stand

I cannot wait to share this week’s message with you! It has been at the forefront of my 8 years of ministry and is the driving factor behind everything I do at LifePoint. Unity. I long to see the Church, the bride of Christ, united in love towards the Lord and each other. I have preached this theme in dozens of series and have strived to build a church that does not quench the tension that exists between different people’s backgrounds and denominations, rather tries and disciple people to learn to love the other person despite their differences, be in community with them. It is one thing to say you love someone who has different theology than you then distance yourself from them and cut off any real relationship because you don’t know how to be in relationship with differences that you perceive as ungodly or inaccurate. It is quite another deal to remain in relationship and ask God to lead you both to truth while strengthening the unity and bond between one another. Through multiple different avenues this week God brought this message to me and by Thursday made it so clear that this is what I was supposed to preach on that I would be crazy to do anything else. So, take this week to catch up on The Chosen series, and pray that God would open your heart to the unity He asks of His bride. Peace, Nathan Bentley

VBS 2021 Volunteers Needed!

It is that time again for Vacation Bible School! This year it will be held on Jun 14th through the 18th from 9 to 12. V.B.S. is a great opportunity for community kids to come and hear about the saving grace of Jesus through a week of fun, adventure, and biblical conversation…but we can’t pull this off without your assistance. We need a plethora of volunteers to serve in many different areas. We need game, snack, and craft leaders along with group leaders to come alongside the students, guiding them and facilitating conversation during small group time. Pray warriors, security, and more. Last year we enjoyed having the opportunity for V.B.S. To Go but we are even more excited to be back, live in person with another great week of lessons, an excitingly creative drama, and a whole lot of fun! Click HERE and sign up today to serve God’s kingdom in an important, fun way. We are planning on over 200 of our church kids and our surrounding neighbors to attend so be sure to let your neighbors know about it too! Come be part of the fun and see how God works in your heart as well. Pastor Mike

Covenant Re-Cap

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
