Life Point Baptist Church
Apple Valley, CA
We had a wonderful first week in the state of California! It was so sweet to reconnect with some dear friends we served with at Inter-City Baptist Church in Detroit, and be able to partner together in ministry for a week.
We loved being able to worship with this dear church family on Sunday and in services throughout the week. Before each of the services, the team connected with the teens and youth leaders in precession. It’s always fun to have a special time of connection with the teens.
Tuesday night was a sweet and special evening for the ladies at the Chocolate Charcuterie night. It was particularly encouraging to see all the women who came out to this event to fellowship, and bring their friends to hear the Gospel. The women of the church put this event on, so our lady team members helped in the nursery, facilitating games, and sharing a message. Please continue to pray for the hearts of the ladies that were in attendance that night who need Jesus as their Savior.
Wednesday was a special evening in which we saw a local body of Christ have fun with each other. Before the service began, people gathered outside to play nine-square, volleyball, or just talk. What a fun way to begin a Family Fun Night! It was so much fun to play games and have challenges with these believers. Laughing with local churches and encouraging them in unity is such a treat. On Thursday evening, the Irish Concert was a great way to end a sweet week.
We loved serving with the people of Life Point this week. But it was particularly special since we got to serve alongside dear friends and family. Natalie’s brother, Tim, is on staff there, so it was a special week with family as well. We ended the week with a fun off day as some of the team went skiing together. On Saturday morning before our team left, we all sang a special song for a family who lost a loved one. It was a special and unique way to be a blessing to this sweet family friend of ours and those on staff at Life Point.
