Lifehouse Church

Beginning Aug. 23 we will start a short three week mini series entitled "The Christian's Calling".  God calls each of us to contribute (serve), to celebrate (worship) and to connect with others (community groups).  Though there are other God given purposes for our lives, we will be looking specifically at these three reasons God created each one of us and discover how God uniquely shaped us to live out this calling.  We hope you can join us each Sunday morning at 10:30.  These will be important messages for the continued growth, health and impact of our church family.

For growth in your relationship with Jesus, it is biblical and necessary to have intentional relationships with people in your church family – and a community group is the ideal place for that.  These groups consist of up to 16 adults who meet seven times, twice monthly, to pursue spiritual growth and healthy relationships.  You’ll be encouraged to live out the truths you discover in the Bible, pray, eat, laugh, and just enjoy one another.  You don’t have to know the Bible well, be able to pray out loud, or reveal the deepest darkest secret of your soul.  You just have to come, be yourself, and get connected to a group of fellow strugglers.  Check with your host in advance if you plan to bring your kids so child care is arranged.  Our Fall 2015 groups begin the week of Sept. 20.  Sign up on one of the “Community Group” clipboards.  The groups are limited to sixteen.

Schedule:  The week of Sept. 20; Oct. 4, 18; Nov. 1, 15, 29; Dec. 13
