Latest COVID-19 Updates
Update December 3, 2020
LifePoint Kids classes will be open through the Christmas season on campus December 6, 13 and 20 for ages 3 yrs-5th grade! Even though we’re not having Sunday gatherings in the auditorium, we felt it was important to continue having Sunday classes for kids. The governor’s latest announcement specified that gatherings of 50 or less were acceptable as long as all the appropriate safety measures are in place (masks, social distancing, hand washing, etc). He was very firm about wanting schools to stay open and highlighted the importance of connection for kids. Even though LifePoint is not a school, we can take our lead from the schools and stay open as long as it’s safe to do so. The LifePoint Kids Volunteer Team believes that kids need connection in order to stay healthy emotionally and mentally and they need the hope of God’s word now more than ever. So we have decided to have kids classes this Christmas season.
The kids Christmas program is “BUILDING CHRISTMAS”! Each week, kids will have the chance to build something with LEGO bricks that will remind them of important parts of the Christmas story.
December 6: Christmas Tree – Reminds us of the wooden cross Jesus died on.
December 13: Snowflake – Jesus came to make our hearts clean from sin, as clean as pure white snow.
December 20: Star and Christmas Gift – Christmas trees have stars on top because of the star that led the wise men to Jesus. When Jesus came to earth to give his life for us, he gave it as a gift. Accepting Jesus’ free gift of salvation is the best Christmas gift
we could ever receive.
PRE-REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED so that we can stay within the 50 per limit and will open soon on LifePointNV.com/events.
There will be 4 classes at 10:00-11:00:
Room 1 – Preschool ages 3-4
Room 2 – Kindergarten-1st grade
Room 3 – 2nd-3rd grade
Room 4 – 4th-5th grade
We’ll open 30 minutes before class with free play and 30 minutes after class for a total of 2 hours from 9:30-11:30.
All required safety protocol will be adhered to including social distancing (3 ft apart for kids), masks required for adults and encouraged for kids, hand washing, etc. All volunteers and children will have their temperatures checked upon arrival. Kids with temperature of 100 degrees or more will not be admitted. Please check your child’s temperature at home before coming to church.
We know that this has been a stressful time for you as a parent. Not only will this be a fun time of Bible learning for your kids, it’ll also give you the opportunity to watch the service online without distraction or simply have some time for yourself to go out for brunch or Christmas shopping or just relax.
It’s our gift to you from the LifePoint Kids Team!
Update November 12, 2020
As I’m sure you’re already aware, COVID cases in our communities are on the rise, and Governor Sisolak asked that Nevadans do their part to slow the spread of the virus. Since March of this year, we’ve taken the approach of being a team player with local officials while also doing what we think is wise and best for our church and the surrounding community.
It’s possible that in the next two weeks that churches, businesses, and residents will be asked or ordered to stay home. Rather than worrying about what might happen, or becoming frustrated that we can’t do everything we want, we’re going to focus on being wise in what we can do. We hope you’ll join us in this. Whatever you can do, do it with wisdom.
We’ve come up with a plan to help our community and help people stay connected at the same time in a wise manner. We believe connection is vital in every season of life and this time is no different. Here’s a short synopsis of what we’ll be doing for the rest of November. Before the beginning of December, we’ll reassess to see if there are more things that we can do with wisdom.
We will move Sundays online for November. – Starting this Sunday, November 15th, we will not be meeting in person on campus. Please join us online on Sundays at 8:30 / 10:00 / 11:30a at lifepointnv.com/live
We will finish our groups on campus. – Tonight, November 11th, and next Wednesday, November 18th all on-campus groups can still meet. We invite you to do so while continuing all of the same guidelines we have been using and being wise as you’re around others. November 25th the campus will be closed for Thanksgiving observance.
We will care for people. – Our LifePoint family and our community still have needs. We’re currently working on ways to provide food, clothing, connection, and other needs throughout the holidays. If you’d like to help, please email us here: https://lifepointnv.com/
We will set up some intentional prayer times each week. – Prayer is always in season. We’ll have Pastors and additional staff that will be able to pray with you. Check the events lifepointnv.com/events page for dates, times, and access.
We will continue to intentionally connect in groups. – We’re encouraging you to stay connected by joining an existing group, creating a new one, or continuing to meet in the group you’re in. Be wise, be safe, be together. This is the time for us to focus on BEING the church.
Again, I want to thank you all for your continued support of LifePoint Church. Despite all that is happening in our lives, in our communities, and around the world, we continue to see God at work each week in new and exciting ways. I hope this scripture is encouraging to you. We don’t know all that’s ahead, but we do know that in Christ we can have peace in whatever comes next:
— Kile Baker
