Change Ahead ... an open letter to the family and friends of LifePoint Church

Hello friends and family of LifePoint Church,
Greetings in the mighty name of the LORD! I pray this finds you well in your body, emotions and in your Spirit!

After prayerful and a very honest discussion as a council this past week, we are making some significant changes in our Sunday Service format.
Following the kick off pancake breakfast Sunday (September 18th), we will be moving up the time of the morning service to 10:30 am.  We are also eliminating the “Sunday School hour” that used to begin at 9:30am.  For those who are would like to host a LifeGroup, you are free to meet as always, but there will be no official children’s program at 9:30am.  We will now point people who are looking for children discipleship training to participate in the BG club ministry (BTW… we are looking for help with BG clubs if anyone would like to help out:).    

The service will begin at 10:30 am with announcements followed by worship together in song. When the preaching/ teaching time begins at about 11:00 am we are hoping to offer a children’s program like the one we did with Faith Case over the last two summers. This will need to be discussed with those who are willing to help lead this new kids program.  It is our goal to have the morning service wrapping up by 11:40am to give us all time for relational connecting as well as time for people who would like to join a POST Service LifeGroup to get to their gathering.  More information will be given on what groups are going to be offered in the near future.  

One more addition to our Sunday AM will the invitation to an ALL CHURCH           PRE- SERVICE PRAYER and WORSHIP time in the main hall beginning at 10:10am.  Prayer is vital to God moving in our service, and in our lives, and we want to give you opportunity to come together to pray every SUNDAY.  Brenda Bowman is meeting with LPC’s greeters very soon to help with equipping them for the new change to our service.  

This is a significant change for everyone and one we pray will help us achieve the mission we have as Christ Followers both as a church family and all of us personally.   REMEMBER…THIS CHANGE BEGINS SEPT 18th

Please let myself or any of the council know your thoughts or concerns as YOUR opinion matters to us!

May the Lord help us and bless us as we make these changes!  Let all of us keep walking by Faith!

Pastor Kevin

    I believe much prayer was made in this decision and I do believe its a positive move. Change doesn't always make people comfortable but when you deal with God, comfortable isn't in His agenda for us believers. I do believe He likes it a little on the uncomfortable side. Praise the Lord for the new changes, my prayers are with you and our body.....
