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. 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!

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.
NEXT STEPS: SHAPE (not an exercise class)
Facilitated by Brittani LoSchiavo and Shari Washington
Meets every Saturday (for six weekly sessions), Sept. 16 – Oct. 21, 11am – 12:30pm in Room C.
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.
PLEASE NOTE: The class is limited to 10 participants.
Book: S.H.A.P.E. study guide (available on Pastors.com for $11, click here for link.)
NOTE: Only the study guide is needed. The S.H.A.P.E. narrative book is a good companion for the course, but is not required. Please, do not let a current inability to obtain a book keep you from taking this class.

Fearless Mom exists to equip and encourage every mom to enjoy full life (John 10:10). It provides a guilt-free, judgment-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 session will use the “Own Your Happy” curriculum.
