Loving Mason Elementary
Life Church recently participated in a teacher appreciation day for our adopted school, Mason Elementary. We celebrated the accomplishments and resilience of 80 teachers and staff who, though working in tumultuous times, overcame to make a difference in the lives of many children. Our church is committed to making an impact in education. By sponsoring three local schools through appreciation events, service projects, and literacy reading partnerships we are able to demonstrate in very tangible ways that the Kingdom of God is an asset to our community.
Water Heater Local Service
The Local Service Mobilization Team sent a small group of volunteers from Life Church to replace a water heater in the home a family facing a hard time. This is the second time we’ve replaced a hot water heater in a home over the last few months, but projects like these are not just about the one time act of service. Instead, they give us the opportunity to create longer term relational connection with the families we serve, allowing us to further demonstrate and declare God’s kingdom values and love, though relationship. One of the volunteer families from Life Church has chosen to “adopt” this household, and will be walking along side them to help navigate deeper rooted struggles. They are following the example of Jesus, who came not just to serve us, but to connect relationally with us.
Greece Missions Trip 2022
A team from Life Church went to Greece to work with Axia 113, a branch of Hellenic Ministries working with the refugees flooding into Greece from the Middle East. While there, our goal was to listen, learn, and get it taste of what it is like to serve in the Greece refugee ministry context. We saw that God has taken a manmade disaster and turned it into a strategic Kingdom building opportunity to lead Muslims to Christ. Each of us left amazed by the Axia team. Their approach to ministry was to simply offer what they had, taking one step at a time in faith to serve the refugees. The pathway forward is not always clear but God is using their posture of humble reliance upon him, to contribute to one the greatest disciple making movements in history, of Muslims coming to know Jesus as lord and savior. Each one of us left challenged by God to grow, change, and serve here in the states. Thank you for your support!
Recent storms produced tornadoes that caused pockets of destruction in nearby cities. Thankfully no lives were lost, but sadly, some families’ homes were badly damaged or completely destroyed. Life Church responded to this disaster by sending several teams to Round Rock to work in one of the neighborhoods that suffered some of the most extensive destruction. We cleaned up debris, mucked out homes, and most importantly prayed with and encouraged home owners. Hope was givem the name of Jesus as Life Church volunteers allowed themselves to be his hands and feet.
