New Sunday Morning Schedule@ LIFEhouse: Four Generations Worshiping Together!
April 3rd at 10 a.m. marks an exciting “reboot” for the LIFEhouse community Sunday morning experience that will bring joy to the West Valley and our church family. The whole LIFEhouse community will worship at 10 a.m. Four generations worshiping God together!
The worship format will continue to be like our former 9 a.m. service. Each week we have practical Bible teachings, usually preaching verse-by-verse through the Scriptures. Currently we are in the Gospel of Mark. Worship is joyous and spirit-filled, led by the Holy Spirit and accompanied by the Band. Holy Communion is a highlight of worship as we celebrate our family meal.
The LIFEhouse Church community is rare in the present state of modern churches. Unlike most, LIFEhouse Church gathers together four generations strong! We experience the Gather, Word, Meal, and Send rhythm of our worship life together, and we are sensitive to our wider Christian fellowship and informed by the best of our Lutheran influence..
On the third Sunday of each month, we will have a community celebration, embracing our heritage and “honoring our fathers and mothers.” Worship will be led by band and organ, and it will include a special children’s message. We will experience the intimate setting of Holy Communion around the altar, and we will ponder the more ancient furnishings, clergy wear, and symbols that lift up the Gospel in color and beauty.
We have free nursery care staffed by our Preschool. This is available throughout the morning for infants- three year olds. Of course, our preschool staff is fully vetted and trained in CPR and First Aid.
Beginning May 1, we will have a separate Sunday School class for Preschool-K children in the Rainbow Room. This class will also be staffed by our Preschool.
Sunday School for Grade 1-5 will continue to meet in the Hall. Music, prayer, crafts and Bible teaching are the order for the day.
