We thank God that the LIFEhouse Church community continues to be faithful in funding God’s mission through his church. Offering is coming in through mail, folks “delivering” their offering, and online. We are a bit behind what is “budgeted” but what is inspiring is our response as we face these times together. For everyone, please remember to partner with us in our ministry of providing physical, spiritual, pastoral, and emotional care and support for our congregation and our community. Your continued faithful financial support makes all of this possible.

Remember you can give online by clicking this link or sending your check to the LIFEhouse.

Let me highlight one of the exciting opportunities we have to serve our community is Meals of Love. We are being used to God to bless our neighbor across the street with prayer and delvering hot and delicious meals for the staff. We are ordering these from small local “mom and pop” restaurants in order to bless those neighbors, as well. Thus far, we have raised about $3000 for this! God is good! If you wish to contribute to this, simply write love offering at bottom of the check or online, click “Love Offering” in the dropdown menu.

 

 

Holy Week and Easter were a whirlwind of activity! As you can imagine, broadcasting our worship services was an adventure. The team we have did such a wonderful job serving us with their time and  skills. I thank God for those who bring Easter power from the heavenly places….You make it so wonderful to serve with you! On camera and behind the scenes, bless you David, Courtney, Brittany, Duane, Rory, Annie, TC, Adam, Thelma, Rob, Marie, Frank, Susan, Michele and Cooper…

One of the big hidden pluses of worshiping together online is our reach is far greater than ever before. So far, we had a sunrise service viewed by 900 people, children’s messages viewed by 2000 people, and the Easter worship service was viewed by over 1700 people! For Easter that is more than 10X more people than would be there in person. Each of those numbers is someone who heard something about Jesus and Easter…

So, what are we learning? Face-to-face Christian community is how God wires us. It’s all about relationships. We pray this lock down ends quickly. But, we also realize filming and broadcasting services is a great way for us to invite our friends, have new people who check us out, and is a way for the LIFEhouse community to honor the Sabbath by worshiping with us, when not being able to be physically present on a given Sunday.

Besides worship, we have over 20 people coming together for online Bible Study M-F 12-1 PM.

I’m also excited to start a new weekly course online Mondays, beginning April 20@ 6 p.m. You can read about that further here.

We will continue to learn what the Spirit is up to during these changing times. In the meantime know…

CHRIST IS RISEN!

With Joy,

Pastor Dana (PD)

As you know, we have an online live Zoom Bible Study Monday through Friday 12 Noon-1 PM. This is hosted by me. I let the group know today that we are working on the CARES Act programs and said I would pass on the information to everyone, especially those who are self-employed or own their own business.

We received some information sent to us as a church and I included other links which I think are helpful.

Remember to keep checking out this church website, emails sent out, and our Facebook Page for the latest news from LIFEhouse.

Blessings,

PD
