An Offering of One Day’s Salary to Send the Church to Be the Church where there is No Church.
Send the Church to Be the Church where there is No Church. That is the Kingdom Dream that LifePoint has been given to glorify our King and bring His joy and peace to the world. It is vision that fuels our Biblical mission to point people to a Christ-centered life. The daily purpose of our lives to make disciples; men, women, and children who are learning from Jesus and living for Him.
One of our characteristics of a Christ-centered life is generosity. As we live generously, we break the chains of materialism, create spiritual momentum in our life and family, and we help make possible the incredible vision and critical mission God has given LifePoint. The One Day Offering is an opportunity to put into action as a faith family these very things. What a privilege we have during this season of gift giving to give gifts to God through His Body and give the one true gift, Jesus and His Gospel. This December’s One Day Offering focuses on Sending the Church and Being the Church in three areas.
One Day’s Salary for ONEless
LifePoint’s campus and sending center in Bangkok is changing lives. We are seeing Thais place their faith in Jesus, new believers baptized, and new disciples preparing to plant churches in Thailand. LifePoint is reflecting the Light of Jesus, in a spiritually dark land. One of Bangkok’s dark corners is human trafficking and exploitation. ONEless Ministries was founded in 2011 by a group of individuals, primarily LifePoint’ers, passionate about helping the most vulnerable people while spreading the gospel throughout the world. The purpose of ONEless is to continually work towards one less: one less orphan, one less refugee and one less victim of human trafficking. The One Day Offering will help ONEless ministries establish non-profit status in Thailand, extending the partnership of the organization with LifePoint, and fueling the mission of our very own LifePoint’ers. This opportunity will also allow more open doors for ministry for our missionaries in Bangkok and other LifePoint campuses. One less victim or orphan is one more who experiences the love of Jesus.
Generosity to those in need through LP’s Helping Hands Benevolence
LifePoint’s Helping Hands ministry is our weekly, many times daily, response to critical needs from those in our local community and our faith family. In most cases the care provided through Helping Hands starts with a response to a critical financial need. Utility bills are overdue and need to be caught up. A family’s food supply is running low. The water or electricity has been turned off. Children are hoping for something, anything for Christmas. LifePoint is there to help financially, but also with love and care by LifePoint’ers pointing our neighbors to Jesus. Helping Hands ministry has seen great challenges and opportunities over this past year. With our region and nation facing challenging economic times we have had the opportunity to respond to a greater number of requests for help than ever before. Your financial generosity through the One Day Offering will allow us to build our Helping Hands reserves and respond to people with critical needs in our community and care for our neighbors when they need it most.
Being the Church in Brussels
The impact of LifePoint Brussels is increasing in a nation where less than one percent of the population claims to know Jesus Christ. In Belgium today, grandparents may attend mass from time to time, parents are Catholic in name but never go to mass and new generations do not claim any religious affiliation. LP Brussels is spreading the gospel to refugees in the city, connecting to locals through their Cafe Anglais ministry, and reaching into a culture that has a growing Islamic influence (25% of Belgium). A phenomenal milestone of the impact of LP Brussels is the expansion of weekly worship gatherings. Weekly worship services at LifePoint Brussels are bilingual. Preaching is in English and then interpreted into French. Your giving through the One Day Offering will fuel the ministry of LifePoint Brussels as our missionaries plant church and build disciple making communities through weekly worship gatherings, Cafe Anglais, refugee ministry, outreach in the Muslim community and more.
