Thank You

On behalf of LifePoint Church, I want to thank all who helped to make the 40th anniversary weekend and dedication of the new building such a success. We hosted 5 events over the weekend. The first was Thursday’s community hymn sing (which we will do again soon). Thank you to our musicians (Jack, Brenda, Trevor and Andrew, Char and Rachelle) who played and sang so wonderfully. Friday night we saw over 175 young people from all over this region come together to celebrate. Thank you to all the youth and youth leaders who made the effort to come. THANK you to the many people from LPC who cooked pizza’s, cleaned, set up the stage (ETC). It was awesome! On Saturday we hosted our first ever fall supper. Thank you to all who came and supported the meal. THANK YOU to all who worked SO hard to make the food, cut the turkeys, served, cleaned (and cleaned) and decorated the dining hall. It looked and tasted AMAZING! On Saturday night we had a gospel concert with Canada’s Double Portion. Not only was the concert great but we had a wonderful opportunity to help the Jones family with a special offering. We saw over $3200.00 be given to help with Carson’s (age 4) battle with cancer. It was a great night!! Thank you for coming, giving and praying! Finally, thank you to all who made our Sunday services such a success. We loved Liz’s PowerPoint presentations of both the review of the last 40 years as well as building project. It was a great end to a great weekend. Thank you to so many who tirelessly worked and gave and served and cleaned. Thank you for coming and supporting us as we thank God for His great faithfulness to this church. We look forward to the next many years of ministry in Lanigan and to this Region that God has called us to. -Pastor Kevin Sawatsky
