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.

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.

Fearless Mom exists to equip and encourage every mom to enjoy full life (John 10:10). It provides a guilt-free, judgement-free, shame-free environment where each mom is encouraged and equipped to be the mom God created her to be (Romans 8:1). Fearless Mom encourages every mom to EMBRACE THE RESPONSIBILITY of motherhood, focusing on what SHE can do to be the mom God created her to be (Psalm 143:10). Fearless Mom equips every mom with PRACTICAL TOOLS for everyday parenting, no matter where she is in her mom journey (Proverbs 3:5-6). Fearless Mom empowers ALL moms by following the Biblical instruction written to women in Titus 2, where experienced moms provide support and guidance to younger moms (Titus 2:3-5). This class will cover Fearless Mom Series 2, part I.
Book: The study guide will be available for purchase for $10.

Using the curriculum, the 9 Arts of Spiritual Conversations, this class will explore how believers today can follow in His footsteps.

Before God created you, He decided what role He wanted you to play on Earth. He planned exactly how He wanted you to serve Him, and then He shaped you for those tasks. You are the way you are because you were made for a specific contribution on Earth. God never wastes anything. He would not have given you those abilities, interests, talents, gifts, personality, and life experiences unless He intended to use them for His glory. By identifying and understanding these factors, you can discover God's Kingdom Purpose for your life.
