A WORD FROM PASTOR STEVE

From our monthly WaterMark email newsletter

April 2020

Connecting for the Glory of God and the Good of His People
I’m overjoyed that our LifeSpring family is connecting in this time of social distancing! I love the fact that hundreds and hundreds of our church join us each Sunday at 11 for Church Online on our website. I love it that so many of our LifeGroups are meeting via Zoom, Facebook, or Skype. It’s encouraging to have so many read or watch our daily devotionals on LifeSpring’s Facebook page.
What’s new? Check out opportunities to connect below:

LSC Zoom Connect: This Sat. at 11 AM
If you are “newish” to our church, please join us this Saturday, 11 AM, on Zoom for an informal time of connecting. Pastor Steve Hicks and I will share a few things about our ministries, but the main purpose is for you to connect with other new people. If you are new to LSC since January we’d like to include you. Many of you will receive an email invitation. But, if we do not have your email address, please email us at [email protected] and we will send out an invite to the Zoom gathering.

Easter Sunday Communion
As a part of our Online Gathering Easter Sunday at 11, we will have communion together after the message. So, prepare by getting some juice and bread or crackers ready. We invite all believers who have trusted Christ for salvation and been baptized to join in this special time.

Maximize Your Sunday Online Worship
--Join in early to make sure everything is working. All streaming services across the country have been swamped, but each week it should get better. Our company said it was 95% successful last Sunday across the nation. If for some reason, you cannot connect, Pastor Ryan will have a direct link to our video on Youtube on the Church Online page (https://lifespringchurch.com/church-online/) where you can watch the video on your own time—however you will not be able to interact. Of course, the service will be stored on our sermon page for viewing Mondays and beyond.
--Join the chat. We love to see your comments! Click the red heart button to say “Amen.”
--Give us your prayer requests via the Online Connection Card tab.
--If you or someone in your gathering wants to receive Christ, they should click on the “hand” button and then follow that up by requesting prayer. That way we can encourage and chat with you in a separate, private screen.
--If you want to talk via phone or text, simply text “Connect” to (402) 783-1103‬.
--Consider supporting the work of LifeSpring and its partners financially as an act of worship each Sunday. Mail in a check or give online. Better yet, to avoid LSC getting credit card fees, set up Bill Pay with your bank.
--Invite others to join us on Sundays for online worship. We have people from all over the country and world joining in.

Let’s keep living out our motto: “Connecting people with God and each other.” We will get through this together, and God will make us better!

Pastor Steve
