The Fun is About to Begin!

God has worked mightily through Camp Ministry! LifePoint Church (LC) and Abundant Life Community Church (ALCC) utilize a great ministry strategy of reaching out to families and serving the community through camps for children in the Summer. ALCC ministers in North Royalton in the mornings, while LC utilizes the afternoons in Strongsville. The Camp Schedule …

Family Corner by Debbie for April 2011

It’s April!!  April brings showers, so the saying goes.  This brings to my mind the old hymn and the verse from Ezekiel 34:26 which says, “There shall be showers of blessing”.  What a wonderful promise!  I think I’ll be singing that this month instead of focusing on rain (or snow!) showers.  Speaking of showers, we will …

Years ago, I was traveling with my brother, his wife and their 15-month old son. It was December and it was night. Everyone in the car was quiet until we would drive by a house decorated with Christmas lights. Then the silence would be broken as my nephew in his precious little voice would say, …

We meet most Sunday nights at 6:00 PM. We have begun preparations for some evangelistic events this summer. There are some …

Pastor Rocky said that five years ago at this meeting he asked the question “If ALCC closed it’s doors, would the community miss us?” Someone then responded that the community did …

A Foundation of Prayer

As we begin the journey of planting a church with a group of others in Strongsville, Ohio, we do not always know the right steps to take. However, God does know the perfect plan, because it is His church that we are planting, not ours. This is why a foundation of prayer is essential to …

The Season of Advent

I love Christmas! I really do believe it is the most wonderful time of the year. Sure, there are the parties and cookies and decorations and gifts, but it is so much more. It is the season of Advent! Advent is the celebration of the coming of the Christ Child, and it helps to remind …

The Mission

It is easy to assume that North Americans are over churched.  But in reality, North America is a mission field so populous, that it cannot be won to Christ without starting large numbers of new churches. The un-churched population in the U.S. and Canada is over 225 Million. The U.S. is the third largest unreached …
