An hour of stories and conversation to feed your soul.
Every Sunday Morning
Lifetree Café is a comfortable place and time to gather weekly to explore life and faith. It looks and feels like the kind of place you'd typically meet a friend for food, drink and fun. Where the atmosphere encourages conversations, questions, and personal stories.
Join us for compelling stories about fascinating people. Stories from the news. Stories from our own lives. The story of what God is doing in the world around us. At Lifetree Café, we explore all those stories - and make sense of our faith and our lives.
Every week, Lifetree Café gathers friendly people to experience the intriguing stories of life around us. Stories about the big-and little stuff that shapes our lives. Family. Friends. Fears. Busyness. Balance. Money. Materialism. Health. Heaven. Peace. Purpose.
Lifetree also meets at "The Pointe," 7:00 pm, Tuesday evenings.
Portraits of Jesus
Join Don Kearley in the Music Room to explore the various matchless names of Jesus.
Some of His names we are very familiar with such as Savior, Son of Man, Good Shepherd, and Lamb of God. Some of His names we are not so familiar with such as Shiloh, Rose of Sharon, Lily of the Valley, and Dayspring.
This study examines the names and titles that paint a beautiful portrait of our Lord and Savior.
Stuff they didn't teach me in Sunday School:
Gospel of Matthew & Mark
Peter Haupt will lead this Men’s Ministry study that sheds light on one of the New Testament’s unsung heroes. Join Bruce Wurdeman from the Lutheran Hour Men’s Network as he bridges the gap between the Old and New Testaments and launches into the Gospels beginning with the books of Matthew and Mark.
The Gospel of Luke
You’re invited to learn about the apostle Luke and the insight that he provides about Jesus Christ in his Gospel.
