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.

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 II.

To say the rate of divorce -- even within the Church -- is alarming, would be a vast understatement. However, with God’s help, marriages within the Church can thrive and be the cultural example they are called to be. This class will walk couples step by step through Dr. Emmerson Eggerichs’ book Love and Respect in order to help them understand how to better communicate and meet each others’ needs of love and respect, and especially how to follow God’s biblical model for marriage. This class is for couples of all ages, walks of life, and even those engaged to be married.
Book: Love and Respect book on sale for $15. Please, do not let a current inability to obtain a book keep you from taking this class.
