It is a new era at Lifegate Church! We have seen an abundance of changes happen. It has been exciting and disrupting at the same time! God is making all things new. We trust Him that it will be good and beautiful in the end, even if the process to get there is possibly bumpy and unattractive. It’s in the process that we can examine our heart. What does Jesus want to do in us to draw us closer to Him? How can the constant changes around us bring us closer to where He wants us? These are questions we have been asking ourselves within Lifegate Women.
Lifegate continues to be focused on giving people everywhere the opportunity to Discover, Live, and Give life in Jesus. Our Brave Event in March was the start of giving women an opportunity to “Discover” Jesus. We are excited to announce that we will have another Brave Event on November 14th! Brave is about introducing women to the Jesus we know and love! This will be the place to invite your neighbors, coworkers, and friends. Follow us on Facebook and Instagram for details about this event.
Tuesday Mornings has been the spot where we go deeper into our faith and “Live” lifewith Jesus in community. This has been a life-giving ministry that has thrived for over a decade! The renovation of our West Dodge campus has posed a challenge in finding a venue that would accommodate enough tables for over 100 women. With this challenge in front of us, we decided to move forward with a change that has been on our hearts.
Beginning October 7th, Lifegate Women will gather on the first Tuesday morning of every month at our West Dodge Campus from9am – 11am, as well as the first Tuesday evening of every month at our Papillion Campus from 6:30pm-8:30pm.
Tuesday morning and Tuesday evening will look exactly the same at each campus, and registration will begin soon using your myLifegate account. Once a month, LifegateWomen will come together and experience worship with our female worship leaders, a speaker who will share into issues that face women, and a prayer team led by women. We will also have time set aside to present the opportunity for women to join a Women’s Lifegroup on the “off” weeks of the month. We want all women to have a safe place where they can share their personal struggles and to find women who can be a “lifeline” in the midst of the challenges that come their way. Lifegate Women’s monthly Tuesday gatherings will be the place where you can be encouraged to “Live” life in Jesus. Women’s Lifegroups will be the spot to “Give” to other women and receive all the beauty God has for you! The beautiful thing about this change is we are giving more women at Lifegate the opportunity to be a part of life-giving ministry!
We will continue to offer MOPS at both campuses. This is a wonderful outreach for women in a challenging season: motherhood to little ones! The information on meeting times is listed on our website. Registration is currently open for MOPS.
We appreciate your flexibility and grace as we navigate these changes together! Please email us with any questions. If you would like to volunteer to serve withinLifegate Women, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
