LifePoint University

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.

Love and Respect

Facilitated by Cary and Kristin Hower

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 and faithful example they are called to be. This eight-week 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 and the Love and Respect small group study guide. Please, do not let a current inability to obtain a book keep you from taking this class.

Deal’s the Smart Stepfamily curriculum, the Briscoes will offer stepfamilies help navigating everything from different personalities and setting boundaries to keeping the lines of communication open and creating healthy relationships so that God’s love can shine through.

Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly” (The Message).
