Basics: Asking the Right Questions

If you’ve ever seen the tv game show Jeopardy!, you know it’s about asking the right questions. Alex Trebek reads an answer off the big blue board and contestants have to buzz in and ask the right question to win a certain dollar amount.

We’re not asking questions for dollar amounts on a game show. We’re looking for the priceless answers for life. And we know those answers are found in God.

Join us for a new message series called “Basics: Asking the Right Questions.
In this series we will be exploring the “right questions” to the “answers” of the basic building blocks of our faith as followers of Jesus Christ.

They may be questions about faith, God, Jesus, prayer, salvation, the Bible, living as a Christian… whatever. We want to address your questions. We want to address the questions of new- and non- Christians.

Our hope is that by you knowing we’re addressing questions you and those close to you are asking, you will make a point to be with us on Sunday, invite others who are asking these questions, and that we will all be equipped to live a life that makes a difference!

Begins: August 7!

Summer Event Series

Summer Event Series: A little summer flavor for your summer Sundays

It’s summer time! In the midst of soaking up the sun, family vacations, and lounging by the pool, we want to throw a little summer flavor into your summer Sundays. There will be some fun and excitement happening each week, sometimes just before the worship service, sometimes just after the worship service…

We’ll announce the next event each Sunday. Or you can like us on Facebook, follow us on twitter, or just check back right here to get a sneak peak of what’s next. We’ll keep you updated every week with information about the next weekly event. We could tell you now, but we want a little mystery to it!

June 19: Father’s Day Pregame
Dad related games and contests to celebrate Father’s Day.

June 26: Covered Dish Lunch
Covered dish lunch following the worship service. Bring a side-dish to share!

July 3: Watermelon-Mania
Stick around a few minutes after the worship service for some Fourth of July fun and enjoy a slice of watermelon.

July 10: Preservice Trivia
Alright smarty-pants, join us for a little trivia contest just before the worship service.

July 17: Minute to Win It
You’ve seen the show. Now you can take part in a series of 60-second challenges (or just sit back and enjoy watching the action live). Starts about 10:15!

July 24: LifeSpring Family “Campout”
Gather around the “campfire” for some indoor s’mores and a little family camping fun. Immediately after the worship service.

July 31:_______________

At LifeSpring we believe that doing life together is an essential part in growing deeper in strengthening our walk with God. None of us were created to live life alone and building healthy relationships with others is important to our spiritual growth. Our Summer Event Series is an easy, low-risk way to jump in, participate, and begin building some of those relationships.

Service With A Smile

Service With A Smile: Teaching Series, May1-May29
If we are to truly follow Jesus, serving others is not optional.

Serving isn’t a substitute for a relationship with Jesus, but is an extension of our relationship with him. Meeting the needs of others is our tangible expression of God’s love through us. You are a part of God’s love being expressed to the world by how you serve others… how you treat others… how you love others.

Be with us on Sundays in May as we dig into “Service with a Smile,” including a special celebration of The Living Water Project on May 15.

Be The Church: May 1, 2011

Don’t Just Go to Church, BE the Church
Want to make Bulloch County better? So do we.

The Basic Info
On Sunday, May 1, we will not meet for a typical Sunday worship service. Instead we are having what we call a “Be The Church” day, a day of service to the community. We will meet at the GSU Wesley Foundation (103 Herty Dr., Statesboro, 30458) at 9am and then head into the community to engage in service projects.

We’ll have several work teams spreading out into the community do several projects. Our projects will range from basic “yard work” to building a small ramp for an older lady to assembling gift bags for medical staff, as well as a few other great projects.

At the conclusion of our projects, we do want to meet together to close out our morning. Some of your workteam members may need to be back to pickup young children or to get equipment borrowed from other teams, but we hope everyone will stick around for a closing devotional time at 11:45am. We plan to be done by noon… honest!

How You Can Be Prepared

  1. It will be important for you to arrive as close to 9am as possible. While we have plenty of time to accomplish the projects, we will be meeting briefly before leaving for our project sites. While we’ll have some people at the Wesley Foundation all morning, we don’t want you to get left behind!

  2. We’re rolling our sleeves up and getting a little sweaty, so we recommend you wear “work” clothes. (There are a couple of projects that require a little less “sweat equity”, so everyone will be able to participate regardless of physical ability.)

  3. Come with a kind and caring heart. We’re serving people out of our love for God and want that love to be reflected to those we’re serving. Also, you’ll be on a team with other volunteers… so play nice!

  4. If you are able to help out, we are still in need of the following items:
    • (This list will be available soon.)

Come, be part of making a difference!
