LifePoint Family and Friends,

I’m writing to let you know about our next steps for our return to in-person gatherings on our campus.

Next steps for returning to in-person gatherings

Our state and region have been steadily moving toward relaxing restrictions as we emerge from the critical stages of the pandemic. Thank you for your patience and perseverance through this most unusual chapter in our lives. We’re doing all we can at LifePoint to safely return to our ministry opportunities. I wanted to let you know about the next steps for our church.

Beginning in our worship service next week (September 20), we will expand our attendance capacity to 75% of our seating. This is the maximum allowance by state law. So, we’ll take it! We will be rearranging some seating and will continue to provide a safe environment for those ready for a face-to-face worship experience. Like always, we’ll continue to livestream our worship service at 9:30 on Sunday mornings. For now, we’ll have one in-person service Sunday (9:30), with a plan to add more services in the weeks to come. I can’t wait to see all of our church family as we begin to reassemble!

On Sunday, October 4, we will resume programming for LifePoint Kids and Students (middle school). HUGS will open a week later on Sunday, October 11. You’ll need to preregister your kids prior to their attending. We’ll be posting all these details and more on our website. Make sure you visit to find out more.

Thank you for your continued faithfulness in loving Jesus and sharing your finances. We’re finding lots of ways to spread your generosity around to others in our community and our partners throughout the world! You’ve been amazing!

Certainly, the last half-year has been filled with stretching opportunities. Like me, you’ve probably experienced some difficult things and some strangely liberating things. I’m grateful for Jesus and His presence with us. As we remain forward facing toward Christ and walk in His Spirit, even challenges become fuel for our faith and growth! That’s called victory.
Gratefully in His grace,
Joe Duke
Sr. Pastor
