Bible Reading

Need an overview? Need an outline? Want to know key points and a key theme? www.enterthebible.org
is an excellent resource for specific information about each book of the Bible.

Our weekly challenge has ended, but your Bible reading doesn't have to! Choose a book of the Bible and start reading! Take your time, read slowly, and reflect on these questions as you read:

 1. What is happening in this Scripture?
      - what is the theme or the plot?
      - who are the characters, what happens to them?
      - where does this take place?
      - what was happening at the time this was written?
      - what is the meaning of this Scripture?

 2. What does this point out in my own life?
      - what questions or challenges does it raise?
      - what memories or stories does it make you think of?

 3. In what ways does this Scripture point to or lead you to Christ?
      - where do we fall short of what God wants?
      - where do you see God's grace or forgiveness?

 4. Can other passages in the Bible help me understand or interpret this passage?
      - use a Scripture search like blueletterbible.org to type
           in a
key word and search different translations
      - use a Bible commentary
      - ask Pastor Amanda!

 5. What is God doing in your life that might reflect what you just read? 

Blessed reading!

Masculine spirituality

Perhaps the term sounds new, different, even wrong or unnecessary.  But there are vast differences of how men and women approach faith.  A masculine spirituality would be one that encourages men to take the radical gospel journey from their unique beginning point, in their own unique style, with their own unique goals, without doubt or apology or imitation of others' faith. 

Men, be who God has created you to be!  Be strong in the Lord, put your trust in him, and be his disciple!  God has much to teach the church through you!

We are just getting started on this journey and look forward to working with one another, building our faith, and finding great confidence in the One who created us. Type your paragraph here.

Lord of Life offers a robust program of faith-related education in a context of friendship and hospitality.

You are always invited to join in any activity - check out our calendar under "news" to find out what's happening now!


Adult Sunday Class

The adult class meets every Sunday morning during education hour from 9am-10am.

We are studying "The Greatest Story: Paul's Life and Letters." It is a chance to look more closely at Paul's ministry as described in the book of Acts and through his letters in our New Testament. Join in!

Prayer Weavers

Prayer Weavers is one of the ministries at Lord of Life that is focused on those who are in need of God's comforting presence. Prayer Shawls are either knitted or crocheted, and the creator is praying for
whomever may receive the shawl, scarf or lap blanket. They are symbols of God's presence with us through some of the difficult times in our lives.

If you would like to receive a prayer shawl, or would like more information about this ministry at Lord of Life, please contact the church office.

While shawls can be made while alone at home, we can also gather along with the Handicraft group every 3rd Sunday of the month.
