Earlier this month, a team from Life’s Journey joined other Christian teams in Haiti to bring help and love to people in Haiti. The team was able to provide help with many needs ranging from practical needs like mother and infant care to fixing water pumps all the while giving encouragement in Jesus Christ to everyone they met and worked with.
Be encouraged as you listen to the stories experienced by the team.
In February 2018, Life’s Journey hosted Tim Anderson and the Covenant Seminar. This was a two day event in which Tim walked us through what the idea of covenant means. God frames all of his promises with the world in this idea of covenant.
If you missed this event, or just want to hear it again, Life’s Journey is excited to offer this resource to you. Learn why an understanding of covenant is pivotal to your life. By knowing what God’s covenant is about you will understand God’s desire for you.
“The very reason we don’t want to go to small groups is the very reason we need to go. God wants us to learn to love. We can’t do this alone! We have to be around people who aren’t like us to practice loving well! Life groups will be an important part of keeping us connected as a church during this transitional time in our church’s growth. This is what our elders and Pastor Rod believed we needed to grow as a church. This is foundational for Life’s Journey. We began our church family as a small group in a home.” – Lisa
Lisa is a long time team member of Life’s Journey. Lisa shared this encouragement after having been involved in a Life Group for many years and after recently listening to a message about Christian growth by Pastor Rick Warren (click the link below to hear this encouraging reminder of why Christian fellowship is so vital to your life). If you live in the Colstrip area consider joining a LJCF Life Group. You don’t have to attend LJCF on a regular basis or even call us your home church. Life Groups are designed to be a landing place of safe fellowship during the weekday where non-Christians can learn a little more about Jesus, where new Christians can be welcomed and encouraged by Christians who are already living a Jesus focused life, where old Christians can be inspired by the young ones, and where everyone can be connected in relationship.
Jesus says that the Christians must learn to abide in him in order to bear spiritual fruit. Abiding has a deep meaning of being unified, being at rest, and being connected. The word carries the ideas of visiting and encountering, but it is so much different than visit and so much deeper than encounter.
Even though abide brings a connection to resting, Jesus also says that abiding makes you a branch of the vine (Jesus) and that when you abide God the Father will prune you. Resting in Jesus naturally produces an opportunity to change.
Listen in as Cortney shares deep insights into this idea of abiding and how it relates to Christian growth and relationship with others.
