We have a lot to celebrate!
Over the past 35 years, LifePoint Church has influenced countless people to find and follow Jesus. From our very beginning in 1987, we’ve desired to be a church that spreads God’s love to the world. Since then, we’ve seen thousands of stories written – thousands of lives transformed by the message of grace.
This fall, we are celebrating 35 years of influence – more than three decades of God’s faithfulness of working in us and through us in our local community and around the world. And you are invited to celebrate with us! We have some special events planned throughout the fall. We’ll be sharing stories of influence from our LifePoint family, along with videos and photos from the past 35 years. In addition, we’ll have some ways you can participate – stay tuned for more info soon!
Grateful for the Past. Hopeful for the future.
Influence is dynamic – it has a ripple effect. Chances are, you are at LifePoint today because someone has influenced you. They invited you here, they encouraged you, they prayed for you. And someone may be here in the future because you influenced them.
As we look back and celebrate the way God has used our influence over the past 35 years, we also look forward, asking Him to multiply our influence into the future. During the month of October, we are inviting you to help expand your influence. We’ll be asking each person to commit to one or more small, simple ways to do that – pray for our church, invite someone here, give financially, or volunteer to serve. We’ll also continue to share incredible stories of the ways God has been using people to share the message of grace and hope.
