Child Dedication

At LIFEchurch, we believe that children are a gift from God, and we are very excited that you are interested in dedicating your child.

Child Dedication will be offered at all three services. Please note: during first service there will be limited children's activities (0–5 yo) for any additional children.

Child Dedication is a public commitment you make before God, your church, and your family. The dedication service provides you, the parent(s), an opportunity to express publicly your desire to lead and spiritually nurture your child in cooperation with the Holy Spirit, so your child will develop a desire to love God and love others.

CELEBRATE WITH FAMILY & FRIENDS: We would love for your family and friends to be a part of dedicating your child(ren). Feel free to pick up some Child Dedication Invitation Cards at the Welcome Center next time you're at LIFEchurch. This is a great way to invite any family or friends to celebrate the day with you.

Water Baptism
Nov
11
8:30 AM08:30

Water Baptism

Being baptized means you’ve decided to accept and follow Jesus, and are ready to declare that decision publicly. Water baptism is kind of like a wedding ring: it’s an outward symbol of an inward commitment to something bigger than yourself. It shows we identify with Christ’s death and resurrection into new life.

Your decision to be baptized is one of the most important decisions of your life, second only to your decision to follow Christ. It is the very first thing the Bible instructs us to do after committing our life to Christ. Obeying in this first step of following Jesus, opens the door for his favor and direction in our lives.

WHAT TO EXPECT: After registering you will be emailed further logistical details about the day.

CELEBRATE WITH FAMILY & FRIENDS: We would love for your family and friends to be a part of your water baptism. Feel free to pick up some Water Baptism Invitation Cards at the Welcome Center next time you're at LIFEchurch. This is a great way to invite any family or friends to celebrate the day with you.

HOW DID YOU DECIDE TO FOLLOW JESUS? When you register for Water Baptism, you will be asked to share how you came to know your need for Jesus and how you came to decide to place your trust in him as your Lord and Savior. Be prepared to share this as part of your sign-up.

Just so you know, the secret is out -- We LOVE baptism Sunday!!

Starting Point: Where Faith Begins

Starting Point: Where Faith Begins

Sundays from 9:45-11:15 AM, starting October 7, 2018, for 9 weeks

NO class Nov. 25

Everything has a starting point - your life, your relationships, your education, your career. Sometimes we forget that faith has a starting point as well.

For some of us, our faith journeys began in childhood as a set of beliefs handed to us by a parent, teacher, or pastor. Maybe you developed a framework of faith based on personal experience. Or maybe you had no faith at all. Too often, a faith formed in childhood, or cobbled together on our own, isn't strong enough to withstand the pressures of adult life.

But what if you could find a new starting point for faith?

Welcome to Starting Point: Where Faith Begins - a 9-session small group conversation about the Christian faith. Maybe you're new to faith, curious about God, coming back to church after some time away, or trying to get a better understanding of your faith. Starting Point is a place where you can explore, wrestle with, make sense of, and test your beliefs. No question is off limits.

COST: $10 (covers class materials)

HAVE CHILDREN?: Children will be part of the regular Sunday morning LIFEkids programing. Parents can attend Service before or after the class. Except for nursing babies, children may not be present in the Starting Point Class.

Loving Our Kids on Purpose

Loving Our Kids on Purpose

Thursdays from 6:30-8:00 PM, starting September 27, 2018 for 8 weeks

Loving Our Kids On Purpose brings a fresh perspective on the age-old role of parenting. Many parenting approaches train children to learn to accept being controlled by well-meaning parents and adults. Unfortunately, God is not going to control us as we gain independence from our parents. We must learn to control ourselves.

Loving Our Kids on Purpose will give you tools to protect your connection with your children; teach your children to manage increasing levels of freedom; replace the tools of intimidation and control; and create a safe place for children to build confidence and personal responsibility.

COST: $20 (covers class materials)

CHILDCARE: $10 p/child, covers all sessions

Introduction to the Holy Spirit
Sep

12:00 AM00:00

Introduction to the Holy Spirit

Mondays from 7:00-8:30 PM, starting October 1, 2018 for 7 weeks

The Holy Spirit is often portrayed as something “weird.” But the Spirit is not a something, but rather someone. Perhaps you’ve never been introduced to him. Perhaps you’ve never really thought about developing a relationship with him – even though you feel comfortable with God, the Father and God, the Son.

This class will lead you into a personal discovery of the most ignored and misunderstood person in the church: God, the Holy Spirit. You will understand the purpose of the Baptism in the Holy Spirit, speaking in tongues and the essential need for the gifts of the Holy Spirit in every Believer today.

COST: $20 (covers class materials)

CHILDCARE: $10 p/child, covers all class sessions
