We will have our Holy Spirit Retreat for the Blackberry Bush Course this Saturday from 9 a.m.-2 p.m.

We meet at LIFEhouse in the Hall.  Continental Breakfast and Lunch are included.

“Free Refills” is the theme.

We will spend time learning, discussing, worshiping, and praying, all the while connecting with each other and God.

Everyone is invited to attend, even if you haven’t been to the course, yet.

A new course for all members of LIFEhouse Church and their friends and neighbors begins next month. We will be studying the topic of “God The Holy Spirit.” This eight week series comes out of the Blackberry Bush Course. The teaching format is 50% presentation/ 50% discussion. Every session has eating dinner together, presentation (mainly video), and discussion, all in table groups hosted by a table leader.

This course is designed for seasoned Christians to grow in their faith and for others to explore the invitation by God to be connected to his community, both Christian and non-Christian. The emphasis is on:

  • Authentic Relationships
  • Meaningful Conversations
  • Changed Lives

Here is what the evening looks like:

6-6:30 Dinner

6:30-8 Teaching and Discussion

The teaching and discussion revolve around three 10 minute presentation.

This course is free.

There is a freewill offering for the meal.

Free childcare is also available.

“God The Holy Spirit” will start up on Thursday, September 11, 6-8 PM. We meet for seven Thursday Evenings. There is also a Holy Spirit Retreat on Saturday, October 25th@LIFEhouse.

To register online or for more information, just e-mail Pastor Dana@ dana@lifehouse.la. We will also be taking signups on Sunday mornings, beginning August 17.

Important Note:

This course is like a circular bus route with lots of stops. As a student, you can get on the bus at any time, ride as long as you like, and get off the bus at any time. Each session is “stand alone” and requires no previous experience.

Second Semester of the “Blackberry Bush Course” Bible Study Begins in January…
“I liked the  intimacy of the group; an opportunity to bond with others; thought provoking, camaraderie; and good fellowship times.  Learning in a casual environment and building  a faith community of believers. An excellent way to be part of a small group.”  
-Abigail Brown

Like a blackberry bush, nature’s “barbed wire,” we are surrounded by expectations and demands on our lives that can choke out the freedom and joy God has in store for us. In the Blackberry Bush Course, we will learn how God frees us through Jesus, and how the Holy Spirit makes it possible for us to receive what God has in store for us in our purpose in His plan.

Prayer is universally human. We study the Lord’s Prayer as a model for prayer. We talk about praying to the Father in the name of the Son in the power of the Holy Spirit. We take a peek at praying in tongues. We give people a chance to pray in their groups.
