Life Church Events
Christmas Miracle GiftLife Church, we’re just a days away from our Christmas Miracle Gift and I must say how blessed I feel as I see the continued growth at Life Church over the past 7 years. This made me realize that we need to look at continuing to bless others and expand the reach of Life Church with a more “Kingdom” significance.
Your donation toward our Christmas Miracle Gift offers many benefits to you, as well as those receiving the proceeds. First, as we know from Acts 20:35, “It is more blessed to give than to receive.” According to the National Institute of Health, donating money makes people feel better. Second, by giving to an IRS-approved charity, which Life Church is, you can write off donations on your itemized tax return. Third, giving promotes generosity in your children. When children see their parents donating money they are much more likely to adopt a giving mindset.
Now let’s look at how your generous donation will benefit the recipients. This is what 100% of the gifts received will fund:
~Reaching Unreached People Groups -This portion of the offering will be coupled with that of 6 other churches who collectively are raising funds that will help build a “Live Dead” center in Ramla, Israel that will give us access to Jews and Muslims in that community through a church, a primary school, and a food distribution center. All funds raised will be matched dollar for dollar by the “Stone Table”.
~Transformations Center for Healing -This portion of the offering will be used to assist the Christ-Centered, long-term residential recovery center for women suffering from substance use disorder, which is located on our Noblesville property and reaching our community.
~Christmas Benevolence Fund -This portion of the offering will be used to assist those in our congregation with needs throughout 2018.
~Pastor Josh and Dani Sousa -This portion of the offering will be used to send Josh and Dani as they transition from being part of the pastoral staff of Life Church to disciple college students through Chi Alpha Missions at Missouri State University.
I’m praying that you’ll participate in the Christmas Miracle Gift with us on Sunday, December 10th. You can get more information or give online here: Christmas Miracle Gift
Blessings in Christ,
Pastor Nathan Peternel
Stormfront UpdatesSpeed the Light
This year Storm Front has challenged each student to raise $100 per student, in order to purchase Kindles for the underground churches in the Middle East. Our Muslim brothers and sisters in Christ are not permitted to carry Bibles, so we want to supply an electronic Bible to them instead. This is a statewide initiative, and LC Storm Front has pledged a goal to raise $7,000! If you would like to sponsor a student in their pledge, please contact:
Pastor Thomas for Fishers at firstname.lastname@example.org
Pastor Mike for Eagle Creek at email@example.com
Pastor Zac for Noblesville at firstname.lastname@example.org
You may also give online at any time.
Parents, if your student is participating in Speed the Light, have your student bring their collected fund each week to service. Each campus is collecting and tallying each student’s contribution toward our $7,000 goal!
SF Lock-In Outreach—December 31st 9p-January 1st 7am
The Storm Front annual Lock-In is right around the corner and your student won’t want to miss it. New games, new tournaments, and new prizes coming this year. Cost per student to come is $20, but your student will receive $5 off for each friend they bring to the lock-in. Located at the Noblesville Campus, have your student also bring any nerf guns and ammo they have, as we’ll use it for some of the games. Help your student reach their unsaved friends this season!Looking for ways to volunteer? SF is looking for adults who would like to chaperone on this night for a 3hr shift and have some fun playing games and celebrating with our teens.

January Prayer & FastingFasting is one of the spiritual disciplines where we get to give something up in order to dedicate that time to God. You can give up the time you normally eat, watch television, or participate in an activity, and spend that time in prayer. When you enter this discipline, you are participating in a spiritual event, joining millions of Christians spanning thousands of years.
Our church is going to participate in a fast from January 3rd to January 10th. We would love for you to join us as we seek God for the new year!
