Sunday Mornings We attend the 9 am service, and we believe that corporate worship is key for believers in Jesus Christ. This is where we gather to worship God for all that He has done for us. It is also where we heard God's word preached by our pastor, Mark Anderson. Gathering for worship allows us to give back to God, and also allows us to receive the nourishment of God's word through preaching/teaching. We then gather for LifeGroup in the youth room at 10:30. This is where we join together as a smaller community of believers and we do life together in authentic relationships. It is here that we have some fun, we pray and encourage one another, and where we grow in our faith through challenging Bible study. Hebrews 10:24-25 applies here: "And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.'
Breakaway This is our mid-week supper and bible study at Lynwood each Wednesday night! Supper is FREE and begins at 5 pm and runs until 6 pm. Bible study follows in room 201/207 from 6-7 pm. Why the name "Breakaway"? Good question. We want students to be able to "breakaway" from campus, from studying, from the busyness of being a student, and come together for fellowship around a great meal...then experience a time of worship and Bible study. This is a great opportunity to grow as a community and to be recharged in your faith. Breakaway will start on 8/28!!
Connect Events There will be many opportunities for students to connect with other students of the Exalt ministry, other students on campus, and members of Lynwood. Our first Connect Event is Sept. 10th and is The Amazing Race (SEMO style) and is part of SEMO's Engage 8! Click here for a list of Connect Events!
Focus This will take place at various times throughout the semester...September 25th, October 30th, and November 20th and will take place during Breakaway. We will fast during the day, look forward to gathering together for a meal that evening, and then spend time in worship and prayer. Our prayer is that this will spark a time or spiritual renewal and focus on those that need the gospel. We want this time to expand our focus to things such as human trafficking, mission opportunities, and more!
Service We believe that serving others is vital to the life of the believer. Jesus told us to love others as ourselves. This semester we will work with the International Crisis Aid and Feed My Starving Children to name a few.
