Currently all but high school students are attending classes in person, and Tricia has a full schedule teaching classes and reorganizing the library. John is continuing to work with Teach Beyond’s higher education department in developing theological training around the world and is also readying to defend his Ph.D. dissertation this semester.

They also ask for special prayers for their son Matthew as he’s applying for colleges for next fall. Please pray also for ICSB as they need to recruit new staff for the 2021/2022 school year.

OUR PRIORITIES

LIFEPOINT STAFF

WORSHIP As those who are blessed to enjoy a

Nate Gast

relationship with God by grace through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, we regularly gather in worship for the purpose of giving honor to Him.

Jym Gregory

GROW Because the heart of Christian growth (discipleship) involves putting God's Word into practice in our daily lives, we offer several opportunities each week to study the Bible with a view toward life application.

If you are a newcomer to LifePoint Church, we invite you to join Pastor Jym and the staff on Sunday, April 18, immediately after the 2nd service in the Multi-Purpose Room for a light lunch and fellowship. We'll tell you a little bit about LifePoint, answer your questions, and introduce you to our ministries. Your children are welcome. RSVP to the church office (317-881-4010) or [email protected]

CONNECT Knowing that every person needs loving friends with whom to share life's joys and sorrows, we offer a wide range of Life Groups in which honest, supportive friendships can be established and maintained as we encourage everyone to experience church life together.

SERVE Understanding the biblical principle that every true Christian is to be involved in ministry to others, our goal is to help each person discover his/ her spiritual gift, become better equipped to serve, and then find a meaningful place of service in the church.

SHARE Believing God loves all peoples and Jesus died for the entire world, we seek to motivate, equip and involve ourselves in reaching out with God's love to others in our respective spheres of influence and through our missions outreach around the world.

Again this semester we will bless our college students by purchasing gift cards. Monetary donations are being accepted at a ministry booth in the Commons through April 18. Stop by to sign up your student or make a donation today. Contact Kris Kocken ([email protected]) with questions.
