Packing Up Christmas

November 26, 2018
By Lake Pointe News

Before heading into Thanksgiving break, elementary and secondary students came together to pack Christmas bags for children in Guatemala. Lake Pointe students packed 110 bags full of necessities, like tooth paste and soap, and small toys to be delivered to villages in Guatemala by Clubhouse Ministries. Including bags and donations from local churches, over 150 bags were shipped with funds for over 80 pairs of shoes to be provided.

A big thank you to all who donated and showed up to help pack bags!

Living Authentic Faith

September 05, 2018
By Lake Pointe News

Beginning a new yearly discipline, the secondary student body has used the first few weeks' morning gatherings, connection assemblies, and Friday afternoon events to focus on authentic faith. Staff and student leaders have led the student population in studying what God's Word says about fully living out  the Christian faith. This past Friday, students practiced applying what they are learning by brainstorming ways to live authentic faith within the walls of Lake Pointe. Then, next week, students will practice living their faith off campus through service visits to the Rock Hill Palmetto Crisis Pregnancy Center and Morning Side Nursing Home.

From the Notebook of Mr. Miller

August 25, 2017
By Lake Pointe News

This year's theme verse, Ephesians 4:1-3, has taken a front and center focus in morning gathering devotions for these first few weeks of school. During this time, Mr. Miller has led students and staff in devotional notes about what it means to "walk in a manner worthy of the calling" and how to prepare for the walk.

The following notes are key points Mr. Miller has highlighted in these verses:

Ephesians 4:1-3

“I therefore, a prisoner of the Lord, urge you to walk in a manner worthy of the calling to which you have been called”

Things to Keep In Mind As We Walk:

1. Ephesians 4 takes place after Ephesians 1-3.  Before we can walk according to Paul we must sit in the blessings that we have been given by the Father in Jesus Christ by way of the Spirit (see Ephesians 1:1-3:21). 

2. “I therefore, a prisoner of the Lord”: Paul gives himself as an indirect example of worthy walking.  He is a “prisoner of the Lord”.  Keep in mind that our lives provide those around us with examples.  Look to the people who are walking in worthy manners.  Imitate them.

3. “urge you”: The word in Greek for urge is best translated as “called”.  With this in mind we see that this verse actually uses the concept of “called” three different times.  Paul wants us to be dwelling upon our calling.

4. “to walk in a manner worthy”: The phrase, worthy manner, draws up the picture of scales.  As we put God’s calling on one side of the scales and we drop our lives on the other side there should be a balance.  This should be a sobering concept.  Verses 2-3 tell us some characteristics of “worthy manner walking”; humility, love, peace, unity, patience, and gentleness.

5. “of the calling to which you have been called”: Our two-fold calling can be found in Ephesians 1:18-19.  First, we are called to become a “glorious inheritance” for God Himself.  He is making you into an inheritance for Himself and the descriptors He gives of us is “glorious” and “riches”.  Second, we are called to know the greatness of His power that He has shown to us through the many things He has done on our behalf in Christ Jesus. 

6. How can we live up to this kind of calling?  How can we walk out this calling?  Ephesians 3:14-21 is a prayer that Paul prays on behalf of the Ephesians and any who strive to walk out their calling in Christ.  Strength and power to walk comes from the Spirit of God.  Christ dwells in our hearts through faith.  We are filled with the fullness of God.  Not only does God call us to walk but He gives us the ability and desire to walk.  May we all be strengthened by His Spirit to walk in a manner worthy of the calling to which we have been called.  Amen.

Blessed Hope merges

January 30, 2017
By Lake Pointe News

Blessed Hope’s name has changed, but there is still very much blessing and a lot of hope!

Those who have attended LPA’s volleyball and basketball games in the past three years know that we have rented facilities from Blessed Hope Christian Academy in western York, as that academy underwent a period of transition. The sign changed recently to reflect “Liberty Baptist Church,” prompting obvious questions.

Good news!

York's Liberty Baptist Church and Blessed Hope are merging, using the Liberty name at the Blessed Hope campus. We celebrate with our brothers and sisters as they combine in strength in a common vision. The churches held a “merge service” in late January, drawing over 500 people, according to the Blessed Hope Facebook page.

The school plans to change names to Liberty Christian School in the fall, according to the academy’s web site. More information is available, including an explanatory video, on the Blessed Hope Baptist Church Facebook page

The merger does not affect LPA’s basketball game plans, including upcoming play-off contests. Lake Pointe has enjoyed both generosity and graciousness from Blessed Hope, and we celebrate the new church’s excitement and opportunities to serve the Lord as Liberty.

Guatemala Christmas

November 07, 2016
By Lake Pointe News

To Guatema with love. For Christmas.

On November 4th, secondary and elementary students partnered with Clubhouse Guatemala by packing gallon-sized zip-lock bags with toys and basic necessities to send to children in Guatemala.

In one of the several joint elementary- secondary events held during the year, each elementary student had a secondary student as partner in assembling the bags. Afterward, all the students enjoyed a time of refreshments and recreation outside.

Through generous donation from LPA families and the Bridge Church, the students were able to send over one hundred packed bags. Tim and Lori Sunday, the worship directors and team coordinators with Clubhouse Guatemala, visited campus on Monday, November 7th to collect the packed bags and share their heart for ministry with the secondary students. Parent organizers, Mrs. Vensk and Mrs. McCarter were on hand to help the Sundays pack the outgoing truck.

According to the ministry's web site, Clubhouse Guatemala is "sharing, serving, and growing the harvest of Jesus Christ." CG is currently serving Guatemalan families in 13 different communities, with Student Development Centers working with over 1000 kids and their families on a weekly basis. The organization impacts thousands of lives with ministries such as VBS, Block Parties, Medical Clinics, Home Construction, Water Filter Systems, Chicken Coops, and many other ways. Two church plants are in process and a seminary is now open. For more info, click here.
