Weekly Jedi news December week 2

Hey Kidspoint Jedi, team leaders and team mates!

Ok, I won't do this every week, trust me! Many asked me what I will do when Chantal will get here. I often said "Go for a long walk by the water". Well, Check it's done. I hope you're finding the time to invest in your life and couple.

"ALL THIS"

Have we glamorized, even sanitized Christmas in such a way that we no longer see it as it really was? When we look at a manger scene we see a wooden structure, neat and orderly with Jesus lying quietly in a wooden feeding trough. The reality of this scene was anything but picture perfect. All the events leading up to this moment were far from what Mary and Joseph had imagined for their lives.

3 things to remember from Pst Daniel's message. The puzzle imagery was great.

  1. Don't over think it but think it over...as in think it God's ways which are always OVER and HIGHER than ours
  2. All this is really all this. A piece of the puzzle of life is really all that it is: a piece of the puzzle. God plans to make sure the whole puzzle of your life will be completed.
  3. The evidence of you believing God's work in your life, in "all this", is your obedience.
This is our goal: 7500 people coming through our doors for Christmas services

We have a great opportunity coming for Christmas. We know Growth happens around Christmas at Lifepoint. Thousands of people will actually walk into our building one way and walk out being different.

Let's get our hands together, our hearts ready to greet all those kids. Our Christmas services are not about asking someone to fill a spot in the Kidspoint schedules, they are more about offering an opportunity for all of us to say YES.

  • To greet a new family who will encounter Jesus in our campus
  • A child with you on Sunday = a parent being blessed
  • A parent being blessed, engaging in growth will become a better parent for their child
  • For people to cross paths with Christ and become fully alive

Your act of service echoes further than just the kids' life. It resounds in the parents' life also.

Christmas team scheduling is due for Sunday the 11!
Here are a few things to know

We're almost done with rally Zoo :( They are closing the site down at the end of the year. We will be using this site.http://fredkp.dropmark.com/ . Let's get used to our Dropmark everyone.

Be the link....who are you inviting?
Let us commit to...
  • Finding who is that person we haven't seen in a while here in the house
  • Reaching out to them by email, text, phone, Facetime or in person
  • Invite them back to church for a Christmas service.
You can pray this week for a few things
  • Jon and Alaina Rounsaville had baby #2, Uriah David! I'm sure they would appreciate your prayers in this new venture.
  • We have some other people getting ready for new arrivals soon: Brittany & Brandon Lake as well as the Ufema's, the Paul's and Pst Shawn and Jennifer McGill!
  • A great friend of mine, Benoit is losing sight in one of his eyes. He has had surgery but we do believe in miracles. Chantal lived at Benoit and Nancy's house.
  • Lauren Tinnell, Spotsy KP director, is still going uphill on her journey to better health. We were told brain lesions were ALL GONE! She actually posts some news on Facebook here https://www.facebook.com/lauren.p.tinnell?fref=ts
  • Dani Tamillow, our Trek coach is heading for Pennsylvania this weekend. A longtime friend battling stage 4 cancer. The doctors told her to stop treatment. Let's pray for Sarah Gilcher and family. She has 3 young kids. Pray also for Dani as trip is not an easy one.
Brittany will be coming in each of our environments for the 5PM service that day with some friends from a visiting church. Let's give it our best...like you always do!
Every team should think of a project for PTTR Christmas
Why: To spread the love of Jesus by serving our communities and encouraging others to do the same.
How: Serving Teams and Groups will adopt a family or community partner that has a need for the Christmas season and serve them to meet that need.

See a need and meet it. What do they have a need for?

  • Food for the Holidays
  • Food during the children’s school break
  • Coats, Jackets, Boots, and Gloves for the kids or family
  • Christmas Gifts for kids or family
  • Project the family or partner needs completed
  • Another area of need for the family or partner (your ideas or feedback they provide to you)

How to serve the family/Community Partner?

  1. Pick a family or Community Partner: A team or groups member’s friend, co-worker or even another group/serving member. Or a Community Partner that your team or group feels called to assist.
  2. Pick the need(s) the team or group is going to meet (scope of your project).
  3. Pick a day to purchase the any items/supplies to meet the need.
  4. Pick a day to deliver and bless the family or community partner with the items or to do the needed project.

THIS SUNDAY : Heart for the house

Be the L.I.N.K. between someone and Jesus in this Christmas season.

Love is the purpose of my command. Love comes from a pure heart. It comes from faith that is honest and true. 1 Timothy 1:4 NIRV
L as in LOVE CONSPIRATION

Let's love on people this month again. How do we do this? Here's the plan. Because we love people

First, try the "3 questions to ministry" in a very conversational manner.

  1. Question #1: How are you and what is your name?
  2. Question #2: How long have you been at Lifepoint?
  3. Question #3: Is there something I can pray for?

Then do the second part of the plan : PRAY!

Each one of us prays with one person! We can do this. YOU can do this!

  • Each one of us engages a small conversation with 1 parent by stating something positive about their child...in front of the child! It will boost both of them up.
  • Invest a compliment, something nice to say to a fellow team mate...and share with him (or her) and the rest of the team!
Let's Kill it on Sunday and Christmas!!
Timothy, guard what has been entrusted to your care. 1 Timothy 6:20

Change the name Timothy by your name. It is our privilege and responsibility to guard what has been entrusted in our care

  1. Our children...and other parents' children
  2. Our diverse environements we serve in
  3. Our team mates
  4. Our opportunities in front of us
  5. Our commitments to serve

How do we do this? Here's the plan. Because We, YOU will kill it !

  • You will show up on time at your time of service!
  • You will surely want to serve at least a couple of times for our Christmas services as this is an opportunity to help people (adults AND kids) encountering Christ.
  • You will RSVP quickly to your coach as to when you will serve for Christmas. They want their schedules to be done by COB December 11.
  • You will engage with the rest of our L.I.N.K.!
Let’s remind ourselves to be there at Christmas: it’s an opportunity to transform lives that we have !
  1. Lindsey Tones, thanks so much for your help here in the office...EVERY WEEK!
  2. Kara Brown, keep on loving on those babies in Dive.
  3. Makenzie Symm, now 18, was "light saber knighted" as a full pledge team mate
  4. Katie was still talking with our kids AFTER service
  5. Echeck, YEAH!
Light-saber knighted Makenzie is now 18!
Good Job Katie!
