Learn more about Life Church, who we are, what we believe, and how you can connect. We have Connection Luncheons scheduled between 4 and 5 times a year. This is an opportunity to connect with others, meet our leadership team, and find out a little more about Life Church. If you are newer to Life Church, just visiting, or haven't had the chance to be part of one of our connection luncheons, we would love for you to join us for this catered lunch. If you can make it, please fill out a connection card, and drop it off at the Guest Center following Sunday service or let Pastor Johnny know by emailing him. Click here to email Pastor Johnny.

Giving is a part of what we do at Life Church. We want to be a generous church serving God and others. This essential discipline is both liberating and full of blessings. Stewarding what God has given us is an important next step in your journey. Click here for opportunities to give.
Both inside the church and in our community and world. One of the ways we grow in God is by serving him in ways He calls us to. As a church we do regular outreaches to our community but also right here at Life Church. There are many ways for you to serve and make a difference in your life. (Our ministry fair on February 28th will be a great start.) Otherwise you can choose from one of the areas on our connection card that you see in your bulletin on Sunday mornings.
Another great opportunity to serve is our Mexico Missions Trip. Click here for more information on our Mexico Missions Trip.
We at Life Church believe God has called us to be the light of the world. We want to show and share His love with those in our everyday path of life. We encourage you to begin to pray who God will open up doors or opportunities that you can share God's love with and then invite them to join you at a service. Our Kindness Card is a great tool for inviting others as well as simply just showing others that God loves them unconditionally. Click here for that tool.
Take Your Next Step. At Life Church we believe in simplicity and we don’t want to clutter people’s schedule with a lot of busyness so we intentionally offer a clear pathway for spiritual growth. We call this pathway The Journey to Become. We want to help people take their next step with God and move forward in life
The Journey To Become is an ongoing course offered every four to six weeks and is made up of three classes, or steps, that you can take. They happen on three consecutive weeks. The next series of classes begin right after our second service 12:00 and last about 1 hour.
Whether you’re new to Life Church or you have been here for years, we believe everyone should take this step. If you have already started the classes then sign up for the steps you need to take to complete it. If you’re new just start steps and complete it as you can.
This is our way to help people grow spiritually and take your next step on the path to grow in a relationship with God sign-up today at the Guest Center or down below.
Lunch is provided and we have child care for your kids.

Giving is a part of what we do at Life Church. We want to be a generous church serving God and others. As you give, we get to give and help others, and influence the greater East Bay Area. God asks us to test Him in this area to give, and to give cheerfully. Join us in trusting God with your finances. And giving is easy, just click here or the link "Give" in the upper right hand corner. You can always give on Sunday morning as well.
360 Giving is a group of fully committed individuals and families who prayerfully commit to give, over and above their tithes to extend the Kingdom of God to those in need. We support foreign missions and missionaries, invest in planting churches, as well as local community mercy ministries. The goal began with a challenge of 30 people/families giving $30 a month to make a 360 degree change.

There is no doubt that small things done with great love can change the world. A random act of kindness with no strings attached is a great way to show the love of Jesus to those around us.
Who doesn't like to be given a free cup of coffee on a cold day? Especially by someone who is smiling, happy and having fun. This type of servant evangelism wins the heart before it confronts the mind. A small act of kindness nudges a person closer to God, often in a profound way.
Here are some "random acts of kindness" ideas. You'll hear responses like, "Oh, thank you!" "This is so nice!" "I can't believe this is for free!" and, "Why are you doing this?"
With each act, leave the little card with them to let them know that God loves them. Kindness builds the bridge for the person to receive a touch of love from God. It's simple, practical, effective, inexpensive, and fun!
