This is a familiar and exciting time of year. As Summer winds down and the days grow shorter, we begin to prepare for the fall. The smell of football, school, and pumpkin-spiced lattes begin to roll in, while pictures of autumn-turned leaves and Friday night lights fill our newsfeed. As much as we love the fun and freedom of summers, there’s something special about resuming the hustle and bustle of our falls; this is the time we resume the normal rhythms of our lives.
As our lives pick back up their normal routines, so do our LifeGroups. Beginning Sunday September 20, LifePoint’s LifeGroup leaders will resume their normal LifeGroup rhythms. Everyone is excited to get back to their consistent Bible studies and to see their friends regularly. We’re also excited to see all of the new families who have become a part of LifePoint over the summer get connected and make relationships.
This Sunday you can find and sign up for a group near you at lpcvan.com/LifeGroups, or grab a catalog during one of our gatherings.
The primary way we organize our groups is based on regions because it’s essential that we do life with people from all stages of life in our neighborhoods. At the same time, there are some stations of life that need some extra support from their own demographic. So in addition to these regional community LifeGroups, there are also people who will be leading LifeStage groups. Here are four I want to highlight:
• Wednesdays, 7pm @ LPC
It hurts to lose someone. You don’t have to go through the grieving process alone. GriefShare is a friendly, caring group of people who will walk alongside you through one of life’s most difficult experiences. Learn more about GriefShare HERE. Sign up HERE.
2. Men’s Redemption Group: For Middle and High School Guys
• Tuesdays, 6:30am @ the Hesses’
Begin the process of lust-free living. Sexual purity can at times seem like an unattainable goal. However, Christ has equipped us to be able to experience freedom together. During the course of this group, we will work to reclaim our identity in Christ and apply the power of that truth to this common battle. Sign up HERE.
• Tuesdays, 9:30am @ LPC
This group is for moms of all ages. Join us as we meet other moms, encourage one another, and grow together by discussing Sunday’s message. There will be childcare provided for a minimal fee while you connect with other moms. Sign up HERE.
The Verge: Young Adults:
• Sundays, 6pm @ the Troupes’
The Verge is LPC’s young adult network. On Sunday nights we’ll be discussing David Platt’s book Counter Culture. Join us as we pursue relationships, maturity, and a better understanding of our faith. Sign Up HERE. Also visit the Verge Facebook page.
