Hello everyone!

It has been a long time since I have taken some time to give an update as to what is going on here at LifePoint church. Wow what a time we have had! We have had a very busy summer working on the building project. In answer to MANY prayer for many years, phase two of the building project has progressed by leaps and bounds over the last three months! Our Mrs. Char writes " The people at LifePoint Church have continued to forge on with faith in the promise that God has a plan for each day, each person and place, each event, and each problem. To our delight, the Lord does continue to encourage and enlighten us with his miraculous helps toward this project- our new facility.

In May and June, the electrical for Phase two was nearly completed, which brought about the next step for building- insulation, vapor barrier, drywall and mud. A good portion of the insulation and vapor barrier was completed by one of our own, Mrs. Antypovich, who spent a great deal of time taking this project under her wing- along with the help of a few friends.

In June, word was received that a missions group from the Edmonton area, desired to purchase and install all the drywall as a gift to the Lord. WOW! They also wanted to try to mud and tape the building. The team arrived (7 in all) on July 26th and worked for two weeks, alongside members from our own congregation, as well as some friends from the community. Through hard work, determination and the promise that “each day is new”, the group managed to completely board the entire phase two expansion, as well as apply the tape and the first coat of mud. Praise the LORD!

The new kitchen is nearing completion with countertops and sinks being put in just recently. The children’s ministries area in the basement of the old facility has taken on a new look- due in part to the new concentrated effort LifePoint is putting into reach the many new young families in our community.

As we look to the future, we are excited and enthusiastic about what God has planned for us. At present, we are searching for help to complete the mudding in the new expansion so that the electrical can be completely finished. Following that, plans are being made for paint and flooring. Time is a factor now, as we are planning to have our first service in the new hall on September 21, 2008.

We are also looking forward to the 40th Anniversary Celebration being planned for Thanksgiving weekend, October 9-12. Many exciting events, activities and celebrations are being planned for that weekend, including Lifepoint’s first-ever ‘Fall Supper’! This meal is a ticketed event, and will see us serving up a full-course, Thanksgiving feast to all those who wish to attend! We are including our ad for this event. Please know that you are most welcome to join us! It is with a great deal of satisfaction that we look towards the future in our new facility. However, much work is still to be done!

It is with unwavering faith in God that we continue to “press on toward the goal”, knowing that He can make miracles happen! We rejoice and give Him praise for the many blessings He has put before us already. For friends and family- even strangers- who have come into the circle of this dream and helped make it happen. We continue to pray daily for His courage and wisdom to “stay in the race”.

Again, we thank each of you, our friends in this ministry, for your support May God richly, richly bless you as you continue to work and pray with us for the miracle of salvation for everyone!"
