LifePointe Church has been asked by Joel Osteen and Lakewood Church to partner with Pastor Joel & Victoria Osteen for a Night of Hope in Kansas City, Missouri on January 5th, 2018! We are honored and thrilled to have this opportunity, and have invited other churches here in Greater Kansas City hosting this evening. We count it a privilege to be able to serve and love others as well as help people take the next step in their spiritual journey.
We anticipate 70% of our audience to stand in response to Joel’s clear call to faith (about 8,400+/- can be expected to respond). If you have never been to a Night of Hope, or if you have heard negative street talk about Joel, you really owe it to yourself and the Kingdom of God to witness this for yourselves.
We plan to host a very special guest speaker the Sunday following the Friday Night of Hope (pointe.info/joel), giving us an incredible “harvest” opportunity to gain new LifePointe members.
The Night of Hope Kansas City
takes place on January 5th, 2018, at 7:30pm at the Sprint Center.
- VOLUNTEERS: We need volunteers for Greeters, Ushers and Retail Workers (free tickets). Sign up at pointe.info/joel.
- PURCHASE GROUP TICKETS: Some of you may want to attend, but desire to sit with extended family and friends. We will order a batch of LifePointe tickets for those who prefer not to Volunteer, but want to sit in a LifePointe group section. This is a great option if you want your personal family, elementary to youth children, or extended friends and family, to sit with you. These tickets are $20 per ticket.
- DEADLINE FOR VOLUNTEERS OR GROUP TICKET PURCHASES: Sunday, November 26, 2017
JOEL OSTEEN CRITICISMS
Unfortunately, many people have seen social media criticisms and/or street talk questioning Joel. Tina and I have known of Joel, his Dad, and extended family for many years. Joel’s Dad, John, was a platform preacher-mentor to us. We have been in Joel’s home on a few occasions, and have many close friends who work with the Osteens. If Joel and Victoria were unknown we would count it an honor to be their friends, as they are some of the kindest, most sincere, innocent-hearted people we have ever known.
As you can imagine, there are massive amounts of fake news and wrong information that are circulated as truth about him. Because we have a close-up view - generally knowing how they made their money, to why they have a nice house, to why he dodges ethical-doctrine questions in TV interviews, to what really happened at Lakewood Church during the Houston floods - we are deeply saddened by the enemy’s perpetrating of untruths.
We vet our public partnerships and carry convictions that must align with the doctrines of ancient Christianity. If you have hesitations of any kind about Joel, feel free to reach out to me and have a healthy conversation as to why we support him and events like the Night of Hope. You might be surprised by the real Joel.
At LifePointe, we focus on relevant teaching, heartfelt worship, honest friendships, constant prayer, and compassionate care for others. Whether you’ve never been to church or are looking for a place to call home, you are welcome here. We invite you to join us every Sunday service. We believe that if you give us a full year of Sundays and Groups at LifePointe, Jesus will change your life forever!
If you want to be part of all God is doing at LifePointe, we invite you to become a member by attending our START TRACK.
The START TRACK is a four step ONLINE MasterClass process. You will be assigned a START TRACK HOST to answer questions and help you along the journey. After STEP FOUR you will have the option to join the church.
WHERE DO I START?
The LifePointe START TRACK guides you to discover your redemptive purpose and live the life God created for you. The Start Track is made up of four steps that equip you to:

The LifePointe START TRACK is a spiritual journey, as well as LifePointe’s membership process. Everyone desiring to be a member of LifePointe Church is required to graduate all four steps in the process.

ARE YOU READY TO GO PUBLIC???
Water baptism is a public profession of your heart-felt faith in Jesus Christ. We call it "going public," and we offer regular baptisms the first Sundays of each month during our worship experiences. We love hearing about the life changes that happen as people come to know Jesus and declare it to the world!
People often have questions regarding baptism: Why should I be baptized? I've already been baptized. Do I have to do it again? Does it matter if someone is sprinkled or dunked?
We have a short 17-minute special video teaching on the topic of baptism. We desire that everyone wanting to be baptized watch it so you can prepare your heart for the powerful occasion. The video can be watched at https://youtu.be/v2g10hgwjTA .
Water Baptisms are planned every 1st Sundays of the month during/in the second worship service. If someone has registered prior to that Sunday the baptism pool will be prepared and ready for any additional baptism candidates. If we have no one registered prior to the 1st Sunday then the pool will not be prepared until the following month.
Please complete the water baptism registration HERE to get the process started. You will be notified by our administrative team to confirm the dates and provide any additional water baptism details.
Note: We water baptize adults and children 10 years old and older. For children under 10 years, we encourage a child dedication, which is a spiritual commitment to raise up our children before the Lord. We offer these several times a year. For child dedications contact our offices at email@example.com . Any child, no matter what the age, that is mature enough to understand their decision to receive Jesus, is qualified for water baptism.
For more information on baptisms, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org .

GRIEF SHARE MINISTRY
Do you know anyone who is suffering from the loss of a loved one? Do you need encouragement after the death of a spouse, child, family member, or friend? Grief Share is a special weekly seminar and support ministry designed to help people rebuild their lives after the passing of a loved one. Our ministry is led by a caring leader who has experienced grief herself, and wants to help others through the difficult days ahead. Grief Share is a 13 week video course that is processed in a small group setting. It all begins September 7 at 6:30pm. Please register to let us know you are coming.
If you have questions please email us at email@example.com. You can also contact our GriefShare Host, Joyce Hill, directly at firstname.lastname@example.org .
PRAYER FIREPITS & COLLECTIVES
Have you ever wanted to know how to be more effective in prayer? Maybe you have heard about prayer languages (unknown tongues) and you desire to experience your devotional gift. FIREPITS and COLLECTIVES are the perfect place for you to begin a deeper journey in God. Ken Whiteside will be directing and teaching in each of the first three Sundays of each month. It all begins at 7:00pm in the LifePointe Worship Sanctuary.
AMEN CORNER @ 9:30AM
You are a catalyst for life change in someone else’s life! Do you want to know how to maximize that? Would you like to be mentored on how to increase your own church experience? Each week Pastor Patrick (or another staff member) coaches us right here in the LifePointe sanctuary. Each Sunday at 8:45am we are inspired with “faith” to impact the entire Sunday experience. You don’t have to be a spiritual veteran, or a regular attender to LifePointe. The Amen Corner is a discipleship training experience. I hope you can join us this Sunday at 9:30am.
LADIES CONNECT GROUP – SUNDAYS @ 6PM
Ladies Connection Group is the place to make a connection with God and with other ladies. Investing time, love and laughter in a community of women is medicine to the heart. Come ready to be inspired and refreshed. This amazing Group is led by Mrs. Tina Norris.
KIDSLIFE ELEMENTARY / WEELIFE / TOTLIFE (CHILDCARE DURING SERVICES)
Our Nursery/ Preschool (WeeLife/TotLife) is available for children six weeks through kindergarten, and our KidsLife services are for kids in first through fifth grade. We promise a clean and safe environment where children will experience the love of Jesus. They will be inspired, have fun and meet new friends. We would love to have your child join us!
SURGE - TEENAGERS
Are you a teenager? Maybe you are a parent of a teenager. We are passionate about the spiritual development, psychological health and missional ownership of all our teenagers. We empower Gen-Yers to create an innovative culture at LifePointe, just as they dream of expressing it. Our Boomer Generation transfers legacy while our Gen-Yers inspire cutting edge relevance. Our teenagers are stockholders in everything that happens in our church, including Sunday services. We lead them into teenage Small Groups to grow and then throw monthly resurrection parties just for them. To find out more go to mylifepointe.com/surge.
Are you in college or a young adult? There is no age requirement. Pastor Patrick and Tina Norris lead this group of visionaries. How would you like to be mentored, parented, or friended through tough life issues? How would you like to have this to navigate social issues, scriptural challenges and day-to-day problems? Join us each week at Pastor's house at 7:00pm where we eat, watch teaching videos and share together thoughts. We hope to see you this Thursday! To find out more email us at email@example.com.
STOP BY & SAY HELLO SOMETIME
We see social media as a great place to share stories, worship moments, and message clips as well as celebrate all God is doing in the lives of the people of LifePointe Church. Find us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram anytime. We’d love to hear from you!
