Something we say often around here is that God loves us right where we are, but far too much to leave us there. So once we connect relationally with God, how do we grow intentionally? One of the great opportunities we have is to connect with other Christ-followers through LifePoint University. In these entry-level, discussion-based classes, we can learn some of the basics of our faith. This semester you can learn how to read the Bible for all it's worth, learn how to pray, and learn how to live the life you've always wanted to live. We'd love to see you grow intentionally with LifePoint U.

Meets Wednesday, June 7th | 6:00 – 9:00pm in Room C
Taught by Pastor Michael Rogalski
You were created on purpose for a purpose. Let’s journey with God into a deeper relationship with Him and learn how to become the best for Him. This class is LifePoint’s membership class, although we prefer the term “partner” because you are invited to partner with LifePoint to serve the Kingdom. You will learn about the history, vision, and mission of LifePoint as well as be introduced to ministry opportunities. If you are considering making LifePoint your church home, this class is for you!
Please join us in person. Dinner and childcare will be provided!
Materials: You will be given a hard copy at class. Please have your Bible on hand.
Marketplace Multiplier: The Art of Listening
Facilitated by Earl McJett
Meets every Wednesday (for four weekly sessions), June 14-July 5, 7:00 – 9:00pm via Zoom. Have you ever felt uncomfortable talking about your faith with people? If you have, you’re not alone. But it is absolutely possible to engage in open and honest spiritual conversations that share the Good News … without awkwardness! In fact, Jesus was the perfect model of how to do this. Using the curriculum, Marketplace Multipliers, this class will explore how believers today can follow in His footsteps, focusing on the Art of Listening. Participants in this four-week session will learn: how the Art of Listening enables us to help people feel seen and heard; the joy that comes with truly listening to those they meet in their day-to-day life as led by the Holy Spirit; how to join in the Lord’s work in others’ lives; how Christ uses our presence and willingness to listen to minister to and prepare others for a relationship with Him, and more. If you are seeking to fulfill your God-given mission by integrating your faith where you live, work, study, and play, please join us as we uncover what it takes to be a Marketplace Multiplier. The Church is leaving the building!
Book: Materials will be provided.

Do you ever feel stuck? You truly believe that as a child of God, you should be living a life that is full of joy, peace, trust, and hopeful faith, and yet you seem stuck in a pattern of anxiety, fear, depression or hopelessness ... or even chronic pain or illness. You are not alone! Made in the image of God, humans have three parts to our well-being – body, mind and spirit. We live in a world that is focused on disease, political unrest, social injustice, and we have stressful schedules and relationships. We may not realize it, but our minds (and nervous systems) are overcome by fear and we feel unsafe in our world, which has a cascading negative effect on the body. But there is a way out! This class will focus on the strong mind-body connection that is often overlooked and how we can indeed be transformed by the renewing of our mind. Don’t just come to learn. This is a “becoming” class of knowledge and shockingly simple practices to help create a sense of safety and well-being in the mind and body that will cascade into your whole life. Come and see! But more importantly, come and BE … be transformed by the renewing of your mind. PLEASE NOTE: Registration is limited to 15 participants. This class may be recorded for future use.*
Materials: The cost is $10. Please wear comfortable clothing; there will be some movement and exercise.
