A beautiful Christmas Eve, followed by a joyous Christmas Dinner…What better way to worship and serve our Lord Jesus. Here are pictures and a video Silent Night!
We will serve a full Christmas dinner@ 2 p.m. on Tuesday, December 25th, Christmas Day.
There is a signup board for the meal@ LIFEhouse.
If you would like to serve, we will be preparing, beginning 10:30 a.m., serving@ 2, and cleaning up afterward.
Come to IMPACT on Wednesday Night, December 19@ 6 p.m. as we will put together decorations and place-settings.
We are collecting toiletries and new socks, along with clothing, outerwear and shoes in good condition. You can bring these to LIFEhouse on Sunday or during the week.
Sunday@ worship we shared a cross + generational Christmas! LIFEhouse Sunday School and IMPACT youth join other generations of friends as we see what Christmas really means…
This month, we begin a series on Loving our Neighbor. Like the Gospel Primer Series we followed in the Spring, we will use a book in group and individual studies to help us all make progress in connecting with our neighbors.
We launch this series on Sunday, September 16. Everyone, teen-adult, will receive a copy of Pastor Lynn Cory’s book, “Neighborhood Initiative and the Love of God.” Pastor Lynn will preach on this day to kick things off. Then each week, the theme for Sunday will have to do with loving our neighbors.
The Gospel Primer
Starting the week of April 1
Teens and up
A group of close friends whether it is a current small group or Bible study group, or you may invite some friends to join you in a new community for the next eight weeks. There are no size limitations, though 4-12 range is a good place to start. A good number to accommodate meeting in a home, apartment, or quiet restaurant, as you will come together once a week for simple meal and community building. Long time Christians, new Christians, and those who are interested in exploring faith.
The Gospel Primer Journal is the guide. These will be available Easter Sunday.
There will be a sermon connecting with what we did that week on the following Sunday.
Suggested $15 for the book. If that is an issue, give less. We want no one left out.
20-30 minutes a day for eight weeks
Eating with friends once a week
God is Good… is a new series on the good news of Jesus from Paul’s letter to the Colossians. It is interesting how much we have in common with the Colossians. As Paul shares the gospel with them, we too are invited into the same good news. And who doesn’t need good news?
This week we see how God saves us from too much separation and too much striving in our lives. It’s about receiving grace and peace…Colossians 1:1-2
(With some key insights from my friend, David Housholder)
LSS had their annual breakfast at LIFEhouse this year. It was a great event and the highlight for us was…LSS named Beth Yaros their volunteer of the year! Beth does just about anything around the LSS site, volunteering four days a week! Just as she serves in her other ministries, Beth shines at LSS…
Glory to God for all he does through our sister, Beth!
